So, What Is Cooking?

(p.182) Conclusion
Secrets from the Greek Kitchen

David E. Sutton

University of California Press

Against the background of claims by some that “cooking is dead,” this final chapter considers how Kalymnians define cooking and not cooking; how issues of skill, risk, and embodiment play into these definitions; and what the implications are of changing gender relations for the future of Kalymnian cooking. It provides updates on some of the key people in the book. Nina visits her birthplace in the United States after a forty-one-year absence. Katerina remodels her kitchen. Greece struggles with political and financial crisis, while people adjust their cooking practices.

Keywords:   skill, risk, gender and power, Greek crisis
