Secret Ingredients PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Secret Ingredients free pdf In a series of fascinating chapters highlighting the 1950s convenience-food cookbooks to the 1960s "I Hate to Cook Book" to the 1980s rise in 'white trash' cookbooks and the surprise success of the "Two Fat Ladies" books from the 1990s, leading author Sherrie Inness analyzes how women have used cookbooks over the years to protest social norms. While other books on cooking culture deal with gender stereotyping and traditional roles for women, Inness argues that cookbooks have always had a political agenda. Exploring a fifty-year span, "Secret Ingredients" demonstrates how cooking literature continues to be a valuable tool for understanding how race, class and ethnicity are constructed.
