This study encompasses an examination of the meanings individuals attach to home cooking and, in particular, how such meanings are linked to issues of identity and home. Food and food preparation are such mundane aspects of everyday life that it is tempting to dismiss both as trivial. But the two are never simple matters of sustenance. The preparation and subsequent consumption of home cooking are, and always have been, fundamental markers of culture and identity. The three principal research questions for this study are (1) What is the contemporary meaning of home cooking? (2) What is the link between home cooking and identity? (3) What is the link between home cooking and metaphorical constructions of "home"? Data for the study are collected from three sources: in-depth interviews with cooking professionals, in-depth interviews with cooking contest participants, and focus groups with American consumers in Northeastern, Southern, Western and Midwestern regions of the United States. The findings indicate that home cooking can be understood as a form of cultural production in several respects. First, home cooking both establishes and reflects the temporal order and rhythms of everyday life. Home cooking is a reflection of the harriedness of modern life, but also serves as a means for creating a sense of "timeless" time. Additionally, the acts and products of home cooking serve as symbolic "gifts of time" both for those who cook and for those who receive home cooking from others. With regard to identity, the results reveal that a home cooking identity is based on traditional qualities (including creativity, generosity, competence and commitment) as well postmodern traits related to consumption and consumerism. Finally, the study findings indicate that the routines, constancy and control generated by participation in home cooking establish the meaning of home as a secure haven from the outside world.

What's really going on in the kitchen?Whilst cookery programmes are broadcast at peak viewing times and chefs regularly claim celebrity status, food writers announce the death of cooking. Parents, experts, campaigners and policymakers grow increasingly concerned about the proliferation of pre-prepared foods and a growing trend for eating alone and on the run. Kitchen Secrets explores the thoughts, values and opinions of home cooks, their practices and experiences, and the skills and knowledge they use to prepare and provide food. It offers new and challenging ways of thinking about cooking, examining and often contesting commonly-held beliefs and theories about the role of practical cookery lessons, dinner parties as showcases for culinary flair and the de-skilling effect of convenience foods. Kitchen Secrets lifts the lid on the modern range to see what's cooking.

Cooking with Love is a collection of recipes that I have made over the past forty years of experimenting and cooking for family and friends. Webster Dictionary gives the meaning of love as "great interest and pleasure in something." Cooking brings me great joy and pleasure that I desire to share with all. When I see people taste or eat the food that I have labored over in love, I watch for their expression and enjoyment, knowing the food that I have prepared is good for the soul. The feeling I experience upon observing is one of warmth and is treasured in my heart. For fun, I asked my husband, Charles, what is his meaning of love, and he replied, "Willie." I just laughed, for he summed up the essence of this cookbook. It's me giving you a piece of my experiences, memories, and joy--all in a dish of food. Enjoy.

Pa?ini’s grammar is the oldest surviving grammar of Sanskrit, dating back to the fifth century BCE. In its completeness of coverage of linguistic elements and its theoretical and analytical sophistication, Pa?ini’s grammar is surprisingly modern. It has long provided inspiration for many ideas in modern linguistics, and continues to attract scholars’ attention in the fields of Sanskrit and linguistics. Pa?inian Studies collects seventeen essays on Pa?inian linguistics in a single volume dedicated to Professor S. D. Joshi, a stalwart scholar of Pa?inian grammar. The contributors, all scholors of international acclaim and students and friends of Professor Joshi, include Ashok Aklujkar, Pandit V. B. Bhagwat, Saroja Bhate, Gopikamohan Bhattacharya, Johannes Bronkhorst, George Cardona, Achyutananda Dash, Madhav M. Deshpande, Peter Edwin Hook, Daniel H. H. Ingalls, V. N. Jha, Dinabandhu Kar, Paul Kiparsky, Bimal Krishna Matilal, G. B. Palsule, K. Kunjunni Raja, and J. A. F. Roodbergen. Taken together, their contributions encompass the wide range of interests and specializations within the field of Pa?inian studies.

Never before have we cared so much about food. It preoccupies our popular culture, our fantasies, and even our moralizing—“You still eat meat?” With our top chefs as deities and finest restaurants as places of pilgrimage, we have made food the stuff of secular seeking and transcendence, finding heaven in a mouthful. But have we come any closer to discovering the true meaning of food in our lives? With inimitable charm and learning, Adam Gopnik takes us on a beguiling journey in search of that meaning as he charts America’s recent and rapid evolution from commendably aware eaters to manic, compulsive gastronomes. It is a journey that begins in eighteenth-century France—the birthplace of our modern tastes (and, by no coincidence, of the restaurant)—and carries us to the kitchens of the White House, the molecular meccas of Barcelona, and beyond. To understand why so many of us apparently live to eat, Gopnik delves into the most burning questions of our time, including: Should a Manhattanite bother to find chicken killed in the Bronx? Is a great vintage really any better than a good bottle of wine? And: Why does dessert matter so much? Throughout, he reminds us of a time-honored truth often lost amid our newfound gastronomic pieties and certitudes: What goes on the table has never mattered as much to our lives as what goes on around the table—the scene of families, friends, lovers coming together, or breaking apart; conversation across the simplest or grandest board. This, ultimately, is who we are. Following in the footsteps of Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, Adam Gopnik gently satirizes the entire human comedy of the comestible as he surveys the wide world of taste that we have lately made our home. The Table Comes First is the delightful beginning of a new conversation about the way we eat now.

With a vast selection of foods and thousands of recipes to choose from, how do home cooks in America decide what to cook – and what does their cooking mean to them? Answering this question, Making Dinner is an empirical study of home cooking in the United States. Drawing on a combination of research methods, which includes in-depth interviews with over 50 cooks and cooking journals documenting over 300 home-cooked dinners, Roblyn Rawlins and David Livert explore how American home cooks think and feel about themselves, food, and cooking. Their findings reveal distinct types of cook-the family-first cook, the traditional cook, and the keen cook -and demonstrate how personal identities, family relationships, ideologies of gender and parenthood, and structural constraints all influence what ends up on the plate. Rawlins and Livert reveal research that fills the data gap on practices of home cooking in everyday life. This is an important contribution to fields such as food studies, health and nutrition, sociology, social psychology, anthropology, gender studies, and American studies.
