    Given the theme, finding commonalities between the stories should be simple, but the tone of the texts seem disjointed at best In large part because the collection isn t just about women who eat, as one would assume It s about women who cook, either professionally, or domestically It s about women who inherited recipes and traditions, who transgressed them, or who were forced to find their own While none of this is necessarily a bad thing certainly the stories are compelling and the recipe Given the theme, finding commonalities between the stories should be simple, but the tone of the texts seem disjointed at best In large part because the collection isn t just about women who eat, as one would assume It s about women who cook, either professionally, or domestically It s about women who inherited recipes and traditions, who transgressed them, or who were forced to find their own While none of this is necessarily a bad thing certainly the stories are compelling and the recipes...
