Women's attachment to the world of cooking is not without practical cause, but it is also ideological proces. This paper examines married women's relationship with cooking and its ideological backgroung in four Indonesian short stories. The stories serve a primary data, discussed through narrative textual analysis, from a feminist perspective. Married women are obligated to be good cooks, especially to earn their husbands' loyality and faithfulness, so their main role is in the kitchen. In the meantime, pratiachal ideology is passed on from mothers to daughters. Although not all texts describe women's resistance to their role in the kitchen, some women resist be preparing food and marketing it with the aim of not relying on their husband's income alone and gaining economic independence.
