But it was the early 1960s and she’d be part of an all-male team at a research institute taking a very unscientific approach to gender equality. Except for one: Calvin Evans; the lonely, genius, Nobel Prize nominee grudge holder who falls in love with her mind. It results in true chemistry.
“A story of an eccentric Californian scientist who became famous because her career took a detour when she became the unlikely star of a popular TV cooking show.”
The Book Guide® Editor
But like in science, there are always unexpected twists and turns in life. Because of that, Elizabeth Zott finds herself both a single mother and the reluctant star of America’s most popular cooking show, Supper at Six. Elizabeth’s unconventional approach to cooking (‘Combine one tablespoon of vinegar with a pinch of salt’) proves revolutionary. But as her following continues to grow, not everyone is happy with her. As it turns out, Elizabeth isn’t just teaching women to cook; she’s also helping them learn how to live. She’s challenging them to change the status quo.
