Re: “Back to the Kitchen

This is the weirdest cookbook review I've ever read. I have the book, and I'd like to point out:
1. This cookbook isn't written for women and has nothing to do with feminism. It's a cookbook; it's about cooking. How that other stuff got in the review I'll never know.

2. Who the hell, especially in 2009, talks about "femininity" at all, particularly as a contrast to feminism? Whatever definition you have for femininity, it doesn't preclude feminism. Who talks this way?

3. If you're going to take a swipe at Andrea Dworkin, write an article about Andrea Dworkin. Don't just bring her up in a cookbook review in order to dismiss her in a not-well-reasoned or at-all-explained sentence. What editor let that non sequitor through?

This review convinces me that EB Express has turned to crap. Note to editor: Rachel Swan should be given a different task, like maybe proofreading the classifieds.
