The first female immigrants dislocated from South Asia and relocated to Lockwood during the late 1960s and brought with them oral narratives which were rich in culture and tradition. I focus upon how this particular form of cultural knowledge manifests itself partly through recipes and songs. This book shows how, through the spoken word, cultural practices have been maintained through the years and, in so doing, will bear witness to a generation of women whose voices have become lost in a chorus of immigrant and postcolonial literature.

The first chapter lays the ground for what is revealed and how it is revealed to the reader.
