Private kitchens might imply that these sites are contained within the walls of a residential building where food is prepared for and consumed by kin. All true. Yet, here private is used to speak of visceral lessons and emotional imprints a person remembers in the process of recalling culinary experiences. Stories within this section are not limited to food encounters rooted only in a person’s home space, as food’s visceral teachings and effective impact extends beyond the privacy of homes. Private kitchens groups people’s stories whose passion for food is not linked to their livelihood.
