Praise for Egg Rolls & Sweet Tea

“Natalie’s poignant tales of the Deep South and her affinity for finding ‘intersections’ offer a delightful, unprecedented take on the importance of changing mindsets in the boardroom and at the kitchen table. Imbued with the classic American enigma of tra- dition versus innovation, these homegrown recipes are yet another example of how the pluralistic role of steward and changemaker often falls on—and is accomplished by—women.”

—Gail Evans, executive VP, CNN (ret.)
