PhD-project:

A Culinary Quest: Peruvian Women Entrepreneurs in Southern California Negotiating Home and Belonging

Two historical processes - an expanding Latino and Peruvian population in the US and what has been labeled the Peruvian Gastronomic Boom entering global as well as US markets - form the contextual backdrop for the many Peruvian immigrants who cultivate their entrepreneurial ambitions in the culinary sector. The project focuses on Peruvian women who have opened culinary businesses in Southern California, and is a qualitative study. It adopts the concept of home as a lens to understand migrant belonging and integration, and while scholarship on ethnic entrepreneurship tend to focus on economic outcomes, this study seeks to explore non-economic dimensions. I conducted fieldwork in Los Angeles County, Orange County, Ventura County and Bakersfield from August 2017 to May 2018, and in Peru June 2018. The data is based on life-histories from 35 Peruvian women entrepreneurs, in-depth interviews with key-informants, as well as participant and non-participant observation in the women’s businesses and in the Peruvian community. The study examines how these women negotiate home and belonging through culinary entrepreneurship, and seeks to answer the following questions: (1) How do documented and undocumented Peruvian women through formal as well as informal entrepreneurship practice place-making, and negotiate a right to space and thus the right to belong through culinary entrepreneurship? (2) How is ‘peruvianness’ and the ‘Latino’ negotiated through the women’s entrepreneurship and in the food spaces they create? (3) What relationship is developed between these businesses and the Peruvian community? (4) How does gender shape the women’s entrepreneurship and homing-projects? And how does gender intersect with race, ethnicity, class and legal status in these processes?
