Bland is banned! Part cookbook, part history, part eye-opening entertainment, this lively compendium of little-known facts, recipes, and folklore includes 200 titillating tales and radical recipes from some of the finest wild women ever to wield a knife or fire up a blender.

In 1992, with the publication of Wild Women by Autumn Stephens, Conari Press founded the Wild Women Association. Today there are over 3,000 card-carrying Wild Women in cities throughout the world--and some even meet regularly with their untamed and uproarious sisters in an effort to encourage wildness. The Association's primary purpose is to rediscover and to rewrite our wild foresisters back into history...and if there is a wild woman in your family we hope you might help by sending us information for possible inclusion in subsequent volumes of the Wild Women series.
