Your ability to change everything - including yourself - starts here

Chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. In fact, she would be the first to point out that there is no such thing.

But it's the early 1960s and her all-male team at Hastings Research Institute take a very unscientific view of equality.

Forced to leave her job at the institute, she soon finds herself the reluctant star of America's most beloved cooking show, Supper at Six.

But as her following grows, not everyone is happy. Because as it turns out, Elizabeth Zott isn't just teaching women to cook.

She's daring them to change the status quo. One molecule at a time.

Unusual, poignant and interesting

The story was very unusual. It was a very interesting to find out about the women’s place in The 1950´society

So glad I read this book

Brilliant, witty, inspirational and deeply moving. I couldn’t put it down. Anyone who could give this book a poor review must have some major personality issues!
