Remember the Tina Fey comedy sketch about “sheetcaking,” when she tamped down her emotions under handfuls of cake? Sometimes, just eating unhealthy amounts of sweets isn’t enough for emotional regulation (Note: It’s worth a try, though), and a new cookbook, “Rage Baking: The Transformative Power of Flour, Fury, and Women’s Voices,” offers a different solution.

“Rage Baking” authors Kathy Gunst and Katherine Alford compiled recipes and stories as an antidote to the ever-increasing rancor of political discourse. They decided that, if you can’t take the heat, maybe the answer is getting back in the kitchen.

I heard an interview with the author on NPR. In addition to the recipes, the essays and interviews from well known bakers and activists make it worth reading.
