In this episode of Eat My Globe, our host, Simon Majumdar, turns his attention to four women who may not be the most widely remembered, but whose contribution to food history is incalculable. From a woman without whom we might not have gin, to the author of the first known cookbook by an African American woman.


So if you want to know about the origins of distillation, why the author of one of the biggest selling cookbooks of all time died almost penniless, how a recently-discovered cookbook changed what we know about African American cookery, and why mothers ruled French cooking, come and join us on the next episode of Eat My Globe.
