About the Author
Kenden Alfond currently lives in Cambodia with her husband and daughter, and Jewish Food Hero is her community service project. When she was 12 years old, she chose to become a vegetarian (and now is a vegan). After getting a MA in counseling psychology in 2005, she went to India as an American Jewish World Service (AJWS) volunteer. Since then she has been living and working around the world on humanitarian, post-conflict, and development issues with the United Nations and several NGOs. In 2013, she obtained a certificate in plant-based nutrition from Cornell University. She started Jewish Food Hero to get healthier food onto Jewish tables around the world. When she is not working on Jewish Food Hero, she works as a psychotherapist.

"Kenden Alfond has created a vibrant community of Jewish women scholars, vegan chefs, and now readers. I savored the rich and relevant stories of 69 women in the Talmud and will absolutely sample the delicious, accompanying recipes. You'll want to press this gem into the hands of your daughter, mother, sister, or best friend. A true feast for the body and soul." --Michelle Brafman, author of Washing the Dead

"Introducing us to little known Talmudic stories, this book invites us to hear and taste the wisdom of women in ways that feed our bodies and our souls." --Rabbi Sandy Eisenberg Sasso, author of Regina Persisted, Judy Led the Way, and Sally Opened Doors
