The four best essays students produced for this assignment exhibited an impressive breadth of structural and sociological possibilities available within Food Studies. All these essays underscored the role of the relative visibility of food labor in defining social taste for those who consume its culinary products.
The first of these essays portrayed this dynamic well:. Throughout my experiences thus far, it seems that women street vendors are essential to the Vietnamese lifestyle, but are perceived with little admiration. Therefore, since women are generally the owners of street food, they are perceived with less praise than men in society. My five dishes gave me the personal experiences needed to be able to understand the labor that goes into the food and the type of people who make it.
Natalie K. In terms of social perception, she therefore hypothesized that the public nature of street food and the gendered work that creates it are mutually demeaning. It seems as though the role of women is unescapable [sic] in the creation of all Vietnamese meals.
They are the farmers, traders, sellers, cooks, and in general, the ones in charge of the food…. The more the food conceals the role of women in its presentation, the more prestige and monetary value it holds in society, and vice versa. Thus, like many others, that smiling woman wearing bright pink and purple pajamas that works from 4 AM to 10 PM on the street will never get the recognition or prestige she deserves, especially compared to her male counterpart. Danielle C. Both of these essays emphasized the role of labor and public food production.
They highlight how the social status of food is sculpted by the hands that create it. She notes that the social positioning of food is intimately engaged with its taste on the tongue and the space where it is consumed:. Eating a meal is an experience, not the separation of one of the five senses. Street food is named for its environment and therefore, environment is a strong factor in that food. From this exploration, I am noticing that the higher up you go in class, the farther away from the earth that experience takes you.
Bun Cha [grilled pork and noodles in broth; typical street food] in a five star hotel would taste cold and out of place, while a piece of toast with caviar on the street would just look comical. Food on the street is the pride of local people.
Food eaten in a suit and tie places culture in a memory bank. The AC [air conditioning] acts as a chemical spray that masks the true nature entirely. Sarah Kloos. Frontstage and backstage kitchens often imply a visibility or hiddenness in relation to cooks as well as diners. However, the idea of visible versus hidden is mediated not only by space, but also by time and diner behaviors. Therefore, there is some fluidity between frontstage and backstage and an ability to morph from one into the other.
Yet, the actualized, current state of a kitchen is what affects the perception of the food being served, its presentation, and thus those who choose to eat it. Brenda Lin. This student shows that Food Studies provides the space to study sociocultural life as well as theoretical space. Once students situated and recognized the gendered labor of the dishes they were consuming, they were prepared to imagine what that work felt like. I asked them in their second research essay to interview food laborers and write from their perspective.

You must draw upon Jensen, et al. You should focus on personal stories of food production and write them up as first-person narratives Research Essay 2 Assignment Prompt. This essay challenged students to write creatively from the first-person perspective of food laborers. Although voluntary, all the students interviewed street vendors with the help of a translator. The melding of primary and secondary data sources allowed students to both personify the analysis they read in a companion book Jensen et al. One student remarked that her interviews corroborated the veracity of what she was reading in class.
In particular, students highlighted the loneliness that came with leaving children and sometimes spouses in villages in order to earn urban money that allowed them to maintain these rural lives. The opening to the first essay shows this well:. I wake up longing for my son more than ever before. It has been a rough couple of days for me financially.
