Sophie Merkens takes us on a journey across Aotearoa, meeting 35 inspiring women who find meaning and connection through food. From mothers, gardeners, hunters, chefs and hobbyists, their conversations dive deep into how food influences their lives. Grow - Wāhine Finding Connection Through Food is a refreshingly honest and insightful book about women, food and connection.

Food is a central force of people's lives, work and travels: it's often the only shared language. Meet women who know which mushrooms to pick, how to preserve the olives growing along public land, how to make rosewater from blooms, and how to make 'coffee' from roasted dandelion roots. Meet women who make it a priority to grow, nourish and connect.
