Recipes for life


Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)


What do the fragments and booklets that make up early New Zealand recipe books show us, beyond instructions for food preparation? This paper will consider a selection of papers and books from the early 20th Century as historical and social texts which offer clues to trends, conditions, food styles and domestic economy; but more than this, recipes for life and flashes of life lived through the kitchens they served. Under the surface of these simple instructive texts lie deeper currents of meaning.
