About the Author

Sarah W. Walden is an assistant professor at Baylor University. She specializes in American studies and rhetoric.


Walden advances the scholarship on cookbooks and housekeeping advice manuals by examining them through the lens of 'taste' and rhetorical theory. She demonstrates how such texts functioned in contradictory and complex ways, revealing in new ways the truly intersectional nature of domestic ideology-how prescriptive norms around home, gender, race, class, nation, and ethnicity work together and through each other."" - Jessamyn Neuhaus, SUNY Plattsburgh

""Tasteful Domesticity delivers on its promise to model how we can and should read cookbooks for political, philosophical, national, gendered, and racial rhetorics worked out in their pages. By untangling subtle differences in the word 'taste' and in authors' access to it, Walden changes both food studies in the humanities and nineteenth century women's history."" - Elizabeth Engelhardt, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
