It’s the 1950s. The beginning of rock n’ roll. The racial barrier has begun to crack. The Korean War is over, husbands are returning home and the Cold War has begun. Ronald Reagan is a model for Lifebuoy Soap, Rock Hudson is on the cover of LIFE magazine as the “World’s Most Eligible Bachelor.” And women are getting antsy. Smack dab in the middle of America in Winnetka, Illinois, four women enter a Betty Crocker cooking contest in the hopes of changing their lives. What they get is much more than they
bargained for. Little did they know that it would take a zoologist from Indiana University, Alfred C. Kinsey, to really get them “cooking!”
In an age that believed that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, they discover that the way to a woman’s heart is through her best friends.
