(p.103) Chapter 4 Mothers, Daughters, and Others
Secrets from the Greek Kitchen

David E. Sutton

University of California Press

This chapter has more general discussion of mother-daughter negotiations in the kitchen and the extent to which learning and transmission does or doesn’t pass vertically through the generations. It compares a number of Kalymnian mother-daughter pairs to explore some of the strains and tensions as shared cooking spaces are negotiated. One case is explored in particular depth: a three-generation matrilocal family (grandmother-mother-daughter), in which the first attempts at cooking by a teenage girl are described and analyzed over a period of six years to get at some of the ways that teaching and learning does and does not occur.

Keywords:   cultural transmission, knowledge, apprenticeship, intergenerational relations, learning, secrecy, kitchen spaces, conflict and negotiation
