Practices of cooking offer a means of entering into an ordinary area of everyday life to explore the accomplishment of relationality between differently positioned individuals and between individuals and materiality in the form of the position of individuals in social space, processes, ingredients, technologies and results achieved. Methods of going about cooking may be elusive or reflexive, but they are often intersubjective and have a time dimension. While conditioned by past practices, they are patterned by current material and cultural conditions as well as by expectations.
