Review

"Her passion for thekitchen peppers her writing and analysis. In The Women in God's Kitchen, she serves up a delicious fritto misto (mixed fry) in 12 chapters,each revolving around a theme related to different aspects of cooking andeating... Dr. Mazzoni takes old wineskins, so to speak, and pours in new wine, afresh way of tasting the writings of these holy and sage women....The Women in God's Kitchen opens thekitchen door wide and lets in the reader famished for something nectarous andnew. Peering into the pots and pans, the oven and the larder, the reader savorsmorsels of spirituality hidden up to now. In The Women in God's Kitchen, female voices tell us much about Othernessand community formation in our divided and divisive world, quetly insistingthat women find ways to speak wisely while serving and working amid apatriarchal "dining room"."- NationalCatholic Reporter, February 10, 2006 (National Catholic Reporter)

Mazzoni (romance languages, Univ. of Vermont), the author of the
much-acclaimed Saint Hysteria as well as an authority on the life of modern
mystic Gemma Galgani, has worked something like a miracle in this brief
book. It is at once a pleasing collection of stylish essays, a journey
through one person's spirituality, and a profound work of scholarship.
Mazzoni finds and follows the trail of breadcrumbs-the fraught place of food
and food writing-through the lives and works of dozens of holy women from
Byzantine times to the day of Therese of Lisieux. The implications of
Mazzoni's gracefully stated paradoxes and questions are enormous; her ideas
are likely to cast a wide and bright light both for scholars in many fields
and for the common reader seeking to understand the present in the light of
the past. Highly recommended." (starred review) - Library Journal
(Library Journal)

"Christina Mazzoni's homey, understated approach in The Women in God's Kitchen belies grand intentions and heterodox ideas...Her breadth of vision and expertise is as expansive as her intentions...Scholars of food culture, literature, religion, and women's studies in search of a scholarly and nuanced version of the interplay among food, religion, women, and sensuality should read Mazzoni's book. It fits the zeitgeist of the new millennium." -Food and Foodways Magazine
