A beloved chef takes on institutional food and sparks a revolution Good food generally doesn’t arrive on a tray: hospital food is famously ridiculed, chronic student hunger is deemed a rite of passage, and prison meals are considered part of the punishment. But Chef Joshna Maharaj knows that institutional kitchens have the ability to produce good, nourishing food, because she’s been making it happen over the past 14 years. She’s served meals to people who’d otherwise go hungry, baked fresh scones for maternity ward mothers, and dished out wholesome, scratch-made soups to stressed-out undergrads. She’s determined to bring health, humanity, and hospitality back to institutional food while also building sustainability, supporting the local economy, and reinvigorating the work of frontline staff. Take Back the Tray is part manifesto, part memoir from the trenches, and a blueprint for reclaiming control from corporations and brutal bottom lines. Maharaj reconnects food with health, wellness, education, and rehabilitation in a way that serves people, not just budgets, and proves change is possible with honest, sustained commitment on all levels, from government right down to the person sorting the trash. The need is clear, the time is now, and this revolution is delicious.

There he and Miranda learn about Hudson’s past and must wrestle with the moral dilemma this information presents. Bread of Shame is about the beauty of truth when the larger picture is finally glimpsed and made to benefit seeker and savior and all those in between. The novel speaks to what it is to be an artist and a human being in a world where perception is obscured by human need, and knowledge is ambiguous and conflicted.

Engaging and moving... the language is poetic and deliberate.” Kirkus Reviews

Somebody said once that the worst tragedy can lead to a new rewarding beginning. The mysteries of life in themselves can be rewarding enough. Attending the San Diego Food Festival and having an enjoyable vacation was all the Mexican chef Gabriela Estrada expected from her trip. However, as soon as she crossed the border, her existence plunged into an abyss, and a chain of distressing events hovered over her steps, pushing her to become a fugitive. Meanwhile, in La Jolla, the talented violin player Katherine Vaughan, heiress to the Fifth Diamond Hotels empire, spent her days between her passion for music and her charities, trapped in a marriage and a society that suffocated her souls yearning for truth. When these two paths crossed, revealing endless possibilities of salvation and rebirth, the unthinkable became reachable, confusion turned into certainty and decisions could no longer be avoided. The time came to choose between abiding by the standards or fighting for a life of their own. Paulina Snchez (Mexico City 1982- ) After graduating with high honors from the Universidad Anhuac del Sur with a major in Literature, she started working as a History, English and Literature teacher. She currently works as a writer and translator for several wellknown media corporations.
