Abstract
  • A recipe as a piece of text can tell a variety of stories as well as any other. Using a feminist rhetorical analysis, I read my grandmother’s personal recipe journal to show that her writings contain valuable information about women’s lives in twentieth century Poland. Through the close examination of three recipes, I argue that family knowledges inherited through cooking serve as a larger commentary on the social, political, and economic conditions of their lived experiences. The use of recipes especially prioritizes Polish women as cultural stewards and knowledge producers, as their work in kitchens is fundamental to the maintenance of the family and state.
