Linked to this is the idea of widespread Irish drunkenness as an escape valve from hardship – and

naturalized within the everyday practice of cooking. Her recipes create a truly cosmopolitan Smörgåsbord where the big cuisines of Greece, Italy or France meet the flavours of Africa and the Middle East, to become American bold and wholesome dishes. In parallel to this domestication process, one also gets to celebrate moving into a new house, getting a new kitchen – whose anniversary is celebrated each year – and getting to hear about the food exploits of Kalyn’s large Mormon family, in a typical example of the private being undomesticated and transformed. ← 37 | 38 → The
