Book Synopsis:

Chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. But it’s the early 1960s, and her all-male team at Hastings Research Institute takes an unscientific view of equality. Except for Calvin Evans; Nobel-prize nominated grudge-holder who falls in love with her mind. But life is unpredictable. A few years later, Elizabeth Zott is a single mother and the star of a cooking show: Supper at Six. Elizabeth’s approach to cooking is revolutionary. But as her following grows, not everyone is happy. Elizabeth isn’t just teaching women to cook. She’s daring them to change the status quo.
