Behind the Kitchen Door Book Trailer

A great trailer (directed by Sekou Luke) for Behind the Kitchen Door: What Every Diner Should Know About the People Who Feed Us, a book about the exploration of the political, economic, and moral implications of eating out.

The book investigates what's at stake when we choose a restaurant. Not only our own health or "foodie" experience, but the health and well-being of the second-largest private sector workforce, the lives of 10 million people; many immigrants, many people of color, who bring passion, tenacity, and important insight into the American dining experience.

Behind the Kitchen Door is written by Saru Jayaraman, founder of the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, and is to be released February 2013 from Cornell University Press. To find out more check out their site at
