Abstract:

This article presents and discusses the patterns in how cooking is performed by female readers of a Danish lifestyle magazine, and how these women as cooking practitioners position themselves in relation to homemade meals. In terms of cultural theory, the research builds on a practice-theoretical perspective to cooking, while the empirical study of cooking is based on in-depth qualitative methods. The analytical patterns presented and discussed in the paper form a typology of everyday cooking styles, and a variety of social positionings in relation to the appropriateness of cooking food and meals from scratch.
