In addition to its cooking facilities, the summer kitchen also acts as a seasonal family gathering place. During the summer of 1974, field researchers attempted to define the role of the summer kitchen in French Canadian agricultural life, including economic, family and ethnopsychological factors which help to explain the existence of this structure.” (Abstract).
