The book is a series of chapters about aspects of food, eating and food production in America. Each takes a different topic, from a different angle and can be read separately. While academic, it is readable, and considers the issues mainly in terms of gender and race. The final chapter by Traci Marie Kelly formed the theoretical framework of my MA thesis so I guess I should have a high opinion of it.. though I never thought of a title as attention grabbing as 'If I were a Voodoo Priestess'!

For anyone interested in food, gender or America, this is a 'must read'.

An examination of how cooking has shaped women's roles 10 Jan. 2001
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
Kitchen Culture in America provides a review of popular representations of food, gender and race and uses everything from television to ads and magazines to examine how women's roles have been shaped by the practice of consuming and making meals. From 1895 to 1970, this provides examples which argue that 'kitchen culture' instructs women in acceptable social behavior patterns.
