KITCHEN CAUCUS Liberal Helpings is intended for food and policy enthusiasts who are interested in politically inspired recipes and commentary inspired by liberal thinking. People are passionate about food and they are passionate about politics, especially during an election year, so creating food ideas that celebrate these passions provides a useful way to share recipes and ideas. After all, the kitchen table is where most political discussions occur so having a recipe to match is a logical extension. All food categories are featured in the Kitchen Caucus, but the main feature is party foods like cocktails, appetizers and hand-held entrees and desserts. Each recipe is accompanied by a photo and includes a politically inspired name and commentary. Recipes in this book are perfect for election night parties and fundraisers.
