INCLUDES AN EXCLUSIVE AUTHOR INTERVIEW WITH PANDORA SYKES

Your ability to change everything - including yourself - starts here

Chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. In fact, Elizabeth Zott would be the first to point out that there is no such thing.

But it's the early 1960s and her all-male team at Hastings Research Institute take a very unscientific view of equality. Forced to resign, she reluctantly signs on as the host of a cooking show, Supper at Six. But her revolutionary approach to cooking, fuelled by scientific and rational commentary, grabs the attention of a nation.

Soon, a legion of overlooked housewives find themselves daring to change the status quo. One molecule at a time.

Very different yet very relatable

must read/listen for anyone who enjoys good storytelling. Also makes you wish Elizabeth Zott were a real person rather than an amazing fictional character

Feel good story

Liked the flow and the twists though the story hitting all the right buttons did feel too populist?

A good introductory package

It had many catch phrases about the feminist narrative. It's a good pick for a first time reader. But otherwise it felt like a bit too artificial.

Sharp, witty and fast paced

The book is worth all the hype. Quite enjoyed the lead character and her charisma. Wouldn’t mind picking the physical copy some time.

very relevant story

I enjoyed the plot of the story. it's very relevant even in this day and age. I like the characters, they had good character arcs. I would have preferred if the story was a tad shorter. was long winded in some places.

Just go for it. Read it.

I plan to name my child after Zott. That’s all I’ll say about the impact of her character and this book

So gripping

Was an awesome story. It was not a typical story. Brought out the issues of that era very well. Very engaging.

Bold and inspiring!

This is an amazing book. Science community must sit up and do introspection! Patriarchal structures must be challenged and held accountable for all forms skewness and injustices. I am so thrilled that as soon as I finished the book, saw the announcement of the TV serial of the book on Apply TV.
