Through the Kitchen Window
Women Explore the Intimate Meanings of Food and CookingeBook - 1997
These days any woman knows that the sensual pleasures of food and cooking are all to often obscured by the increasing demands of careers, families, battles over body image, and the desire for a life outside the 'traditional' domain of the kitchen. With contributions by Dorothy Allison, Maya Angelou, Letty Cottin Pogrebin and Marge Piercy among others, Through the Kitchen Window offers a fresh look at food and cooking as more than the makings of a meal. For the writers in this provocative collection, food is a cultural declaration, an expression of hidden hungers, and a symbol of our intimate connections to one another.
