About the Author

Janet Theophano is a leading social historian and Associate Director of the College of General Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. She writes widely on food and foodways in American life.


"She has enriched our appreciation for the texture of women's domestic lives across centuries and an ocean." --Women's Review of Books"Janet Theophano [is]...nourishing the mind and changing the way old cookbooks are perceived." --Oakland Press"Eat My Words is the perfect introduction." --Baltimore Sun..".she is at her very best when penetrating her material, like a light shining through paper, to illuminate the characters of her women authors." --Toronto Star." . . a remarkable achievement. . . Eat My Words is not merely a history of cookbooks, but an exploration of women's lives in their own words. . ." --Phyllis Pray Bober, author of Art, Culture, and Cuisine..".an engrossing study of how individual women and entire communities have, for centuries, expressed themselves through culinary instruction both formal and funky." --Francine Prose, Elle"The author has set herself a difficult task. Eat my Words is not entirely a work of history nor of literary exegesis nor of Geertzian 'thick description'...Seeking to chart continuity, rather than historical change, Theophano organizes chapters on themes pertinent to all women's lives." --Shirley Teresa Wajda, Winterthur Portfolio
