Behind the Kitchen Door by Saru Jayaraman
Behind the Kitchen Door

Lurline, February 12, 2013

In recent years we have focused on the living conditions of the animals raised for our food. Finally, we are examining the living conditions of the people who serve us that food. This book does an excellent job of integrating large scale research results with personal vignettes. The author presents stories of restaurant workers who are terribly exploited and abused, juxtaposed with stories of those whose spirit and determination lead them to fight against this oppression. As a result the book raises consciousness , inspires hope, and provides practical suggestions on how consumers can work for a more just and spiritually wholesome restaurant industry. For those of us who wish to choose compassionate consumption, the book is a beacon.
