Overview

Born Hungry: Stories about sweet love, bitter greens and losing my religion by Renia Carsillo

As a child, Renia Carsillo never fit comfortably in her conservative Southern family. To compensate for her inability (or was it refusal?) to take on a traditional female role, she turned to the most traditional place of all, the kitchen, to nourish the never-sated hunger that ate away at her confidence. This book, told in vignettes of memories and recipes, is the story of how a Southern fundamentalist Christian girl grew into the woman her family always warned her about. 

Join Renia’s journey down the red dirt roads of the rural South to the not-so-innocent pleasures of a Belgian chocolate shop. Along the way you’ll meet a cast of Kentucky-raised farmers, Filipino doctors’ daughters, and one very special New England baker who helped transform this hungry daughter of Dixie into a feminist food warrior.

About the Author

Renia Carsillo is an advocate for whole foods, fierce women and writing yourself strong. Renia spent years being quiet to be successful in business and learned the hard way that financial success matters only if it has purpose. With a strong and often controversial style, Renia writes and cooks for women who are tired of playing it safe. Today she writes about the intersection of feminism, family and food culture at DevelopmentofTaste.com.

Renia typically can be found with a spatula in one hand and a pen in the other. She hasn't decided yet which is the better compass for lost days.
