Description: This engaging text offers students a social perspective on food: why do we eat what we do, when we do and where we do? What important role does eating play in families, and in intimate relationships? Where is our food from, and why are some cuisines favoured over others? What are the social causes and consequences of healthy eating promotion and dieting? Why do more women then men prepare food at home, but more top chefs are male?
