Description: The author looks at how the capture, cultivation, preparation, and consumption of food relate to culture and identity. Demonstrating how the history of food is intimately to the transformation of human cultural identities, this work shows how food, originally a practical necessity, became metaphor, discourse, and gastronomy.
