The aim of this article is to analyze the meaning and significance of food in post-revolutionary Mexico. In order to do so, I explore the changes in cooking and eating practices in the 1940s and 1950s based on the life stories of women who were born between 1917 and 1945, and who lived most of their life in Mexico City and Guanajuato. Although culture and geography affected eating habits in both cities, this work reveals that cooking and eating practices were determined mainly by social class. Oral history is complemented with the analysis of advertisements, medical discourses and census data.
