In Manly Meals and Mom's Home Cooking, Jessamyn Neuhaus offers a perceptive and piquant analysis of the tone and content of American cookbooks published between the 1790s and the 1960s, adroitly uncovering the cultural assumptions and anxieties--particularly about gender and domesticity--they contain.
More than a history of the cookbook, this work provides an absorbing and enlightening account of gender and food in modern America.
