Description

Hidden among the simple lists of ingredients and directions for everyday foods are surprising stories. In Baking as Biography, Diane Tye considers her mother’s recipe collection, reading between the lines of the aging index cards to provide a candid and nuanced portrait of one woman’s life as mother, minister’s wife, and participant in local Maritime women’s networks.

Editorial Review

“This is excellent! Diane Tye has done a wonderful job of weaving together her own story with that of the larger culture. The text moves seamlessly from data to commentary with theory and ethnographic accounts interspersed in a natural, logical way.” –Lucy Long, International Studies & American Culture Studies, Bowling Green State University
