Book of the Month, Dec. 2020 - Baking Powder Wars

December 2020 – Baking Powder Wars

It’s holiday baking season! AgBookClub’s December selection, Baking Powder Wars: The Cutthroat Food Fight that Revolutionized Cooking by Linda Civitello, is the story that you didn’t know existed. It’s an account of brand wars, bribery, and slander over something as minute as the baking staple you forget is hanging out in the back of your kitchen cabinet.
