In Jessica Harris’s “The Culinary Season of my Childhood” she peels away at the layers of how food and a food based atmosphere affected her life in a positive way. Food to her represented an extension of culture along with gatherings of family which built the basis for her cultural identity throughout her life. Harris shares various anecdotes that exemplify how certain memories regarding food as well as the varied characteristics of her cultures’ cuisine left a lasting imprint on how she began to view food and continued to proceeding forward. she stats “My family, like many others long separated from the south, raised me in ways that continued their eating traditions, so now I can head south and sop biscuits in gravy, suck chewy bits of fat from a pigs foot spattered with hot sauce, and yes’m and no’m with the best of ‘em,.” (Pg. 109 Para). Similarly, since I am Jamaican, food remains something that holds high importance in my life due to how my family prepared, flavored, and built a food-based atmosphere. They extended the same traditions from their country of origin within the new society they were thrusted into.

Marie Kashpaw is a central female character and mother figure in the novel. She is in the middle of just about everything in the novel. Marie is a strong person, who goes through life steadfast. Only fourteen years old at the time, Marie trusts her impulses to get what she wants: Which was to be the first Indian reservation girl to become a saint. Marie is not of full Indian descent; she was very defensive about having some Native American relatives, telling the reader that she doesn't "have that much Indian blood" and was just as "light" as the other nuns were. In fact, she was so sensitive about that, eventually, she denied having any Native American blood, even with family members. Marie was raised in the bush, she only went to town for Sunday Mass and school. Marie didn’t seem to mind going to church because prayer is kind of a great equalizer and “she could pray with the best of them”, which meant it would be impossible for the nuns to reject or look down at her in disdain. The convent, on top of the highest hill, holds the strongest attraction for Marie.

Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), but since technological and medical advancements in the area of hormones and brain functions it was just called shell shock syndrome. The treatment plan was known for two portions seriously: the rest and the seclusion. Those who were prescribed the rest cure were confined to bed for weeks to months at a time and completely cut off from family members and friends. However, this treatment of confining patients to their beds and cutting them off from family members was mainly used for women. On the other hand, men who were prescribed the rest cure were given two options: “to rest or to travel to remote areas and undertake rugged, outdoors life”. Dr. Mitchell was influenced by the ideas of the 19th Century also known as “The Cult of True Womanhood”. According to the “Cult of True Womanhood” in order to be a “true
From emancipation leading all the way to the 20th century, African American women struggled to find better opportunities outside of their agricultural laborer and domestic servant roles. In Cooking in Other Women’s Kitchens: Domestic Workers in the South, 1865-1960, author Rebecca Sharpless illustrates how African American women in the American South used domestic work, such as cooking, as a stepping stone from their old lives to the start of their new ones. Throughout the text, Sharpless is set out to focus on the way African American women used cooking to bridge slavery and them finding their own employment, explore how these women could function in a world of low wages, demanding work, and omnipresent racial strife, and refute stereotypes about these cooks. With the use of cookbooks, interviews, autobiographies, and letters from the women, Sharpless guides readers to examine the personal lives and cooking profession of these African American women and their ambition to support themselves and their families.

Jenkins shares involved the things her family did when she was younger. Mama Nan, her grandmother, grew fig trees in her yard, which was near a field of berries. She would get her fruits and vegetables from the local farmers’ market in Luling. Mrs. Jenkins remembers canning figs and peaches with her mother. When Mrs. Jenkins moved to Houma, her mother would go to Dugas, the local market place, located on Division Street, to purchase her fresh fruits and vegetables. Mama would make a rustic vegetable soup with her fresh cabbage, shallots, corn, parsley, and snap beans; adding a little tomato sauce for color and some noodles for extra starch, Mama’s soup was the ultimate get well dish. Aunt Ducky made homemade pies: apple, lemon, and sweet potato; her pies made for the best of desserts. These days many fruits and vegetables are shipped internationally to our supermarkets, where we can find frozen pies and canned goods including fruits, vegetables, and even readymade soup. Though commercialization has helped save time, the quality has diminished and the title is still held in the traditional preparations. It is as if you can taste the
Hope you are well. My name is Mitchell, I fell in love with cooking and baking when I was a small girl. My mother was an excellent cook, her food was exemptio0nal and everybody who visited our home used to give her very good remarks about the food. Our neighbors used to seek her services to bake for them cakes for different occasional. Her cookies were very good and my friends used to visit my home just to get a cookie from her. She taught most of the things I know about cooking and I believe I learned from the best. I thank her for introducing me to cooking and baking.
