(p.25) Chapter 1 Emplacing Cooking
Secrets from the Greek Kitchen

David E. Sutton

University of California Press

This chapter provides important background to Kalymnian cooking practices through a description of the Kalymnian kitchen environment as a social and architectural space shaped by matrilocal and matrilineal practices. I explore Kalymnian practices of food shopping within a more general framework for understanding provisioning as part of Kalymnian notions of shared sociality and commensality. The chapter also gives a first description of some of the key values surrounding food and food discourse in Kalymnos and the influence of larger projects such as the United Nations “intangible heritage” designations on understandings of “traditional” Greek food.

Keywords:   shopping, heritage, values, taste, place, matrilocality
