Jón Þór Pétursson

This article tells the modern love story of the organic grower Eduardo and the people who savor his apples. One remarkable paradigm shift when it comes to contemporary food culture is that the product’s social, political and cultural entanglements are no longer hidden from view. This new context has created platforms where producers and consumers come together to co-produce. Here, I broaden the concept of co-production to account for the plurality of actors who contribute to engagements with food. My focus is on the online platform where the meaning of Eduardo’s apples is co-produced through the immaterial labor of storytelling. Such food storytelling is the secret ingredient that is needed to forge affective bonds between local producers, individual consumers and global food companies.

Drawing on interviews conducted with immigrants from the former Soviet Union living in Finland and their family members living in the country of origin (in Russian Karelia and Estonia), this article explores the silenced aspects of family storytelling and analyses how the absence of narration can serve as a protector and maintainer of family as a set of relationships, or an enabler of “normal” family life. The focus of the article is on family past, and the continuum from tellable to silenced experiences will be analysed. However, the methodological side of studying unsaid or unsayable things is also touched upon.
