Abstract

The essay analyses the phenomenon of the “gendering of appetite,” and the daring choice Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher made in the mid 20th century to step into the genre of food writing (normativised as a male one) from a theoretical and popular standpoint. Fisher’s approach is a decisive and destabilising invasion, from a culinary point of view, into the public sphere of exclusive relevance, up to that moment, to men.
