Although there have been developments and changes in public and private life, concerning the social status of women over the last hundred years, we note that there are many stereotypes about this. Patriarchal standards prevail and are evident in all public and private spaces. A very important, but not strictly private space in which the imposition of patriarchal perceptions is particularly evident is the kitchen. Even today, there is often a view, to a greater or lesser degree, that the role of women is limited or focused on the kitchen and more generally on housework and child care. This anachronistic perception can also be found in eating-related behaviors in food systems that claim that women have no place in such matters. The kitchen space is undoubtedly influenced by this perception of the female form. This has seen a change in its place from the past. In other words, kitchen design, architecture, and equipment change over the years, either as a result of changes in the image of the woman and the family in general. Gradually, the kitchen from a hidden and isolated area it is increasingly becoming the focus of everyday life, as the family has the opportunity to come together, whether to cook or eat and communicate. In this research study, a review of the literature on the position of women in society, the design of the kitchen area, and its placement in residence over the centuries is initially reviewed. Afterwards is reported social stereotypes of men and women in the kitchen, at lunch and even in food.
