In Search of Home Cooking
This epilogue presents a discussion of the concept of home cooking. “Home cooking” is a comprehensive knowledge of what people eat. The techniques of preservation are rooted in home cooking, having originated in a domestic economy that was intended to provide a reassuring and durable larder for the needs of the family during the hard times. Home cooking is also defined by its connection to feelings. Foods of the domestic tradition have a taste, and an aftertaste, that can revive scents and dissents associated with personal relations, private occasions, collective holidays, and common rituals. Without this, people can have home recipes, but not home cooking.
