This chapter illustrates how the kitchen through the interlinking processes of memory, sexual orientation, narrative and place unravels different forms of power and power relations. The activity and performance of storytelling is also crucial in outlining how the kitchen transforms in a place of memory. The chapter argues that the kitchen is different and distinct from the bedroom, the bathroom and the living room. The fast-growing anthropological and sociological literature has focused on memory and its relationship to food, home and homeland. The kitchen, as a domestic place, has been largely ignored by the social sciences, as it was often deemed a place unworthy of scholarly attention, however it has received more attention in the spatial disciplines of planning, architecture and geography. The kitchen emerges as that place which brings together the senses, location, agency, asymmetric gender relations of power, violence, and science and technology.
