Abstract [en]

This essay explores links among food, class and gender in two memoirs written by contemporary American expatriates in France. The argument made is that references to French cuisine simultaneously create and resolve the tensions that arise in the texts when the authors describe their ideal and elitist lives to a presumed American female readership. Food references highlight the elitism of the French lifestyle, yet they also contribute to making the memoirs and the lifestyle that they advocate more accessible to readers when presented in the form of simple recipes or as integral parts of a self-narrative of developing tastes.
