Growing up, the kitchen (and food) was central to socialization and bringing people together. Cookouts, repasts, block association meetings, block parties, holidays, you name it, there was a spread. And we're not talking pupus, but get yourself a plate and help yourself to summadis food.
When people stopped by, they sat in the kitchen to talk story, as opposed to the living room. My hair was washed, pressed, and braided in the kitchen. Today, while I don't consider myself a foodie, I love learning and talking about foodways and food cultures.
