Food The Key Concepts

Illustrated with lively case studies, bulleted chapter summaries, questions and guides to further reading

Warren Belasco

“This is a well crafted, witty and engaging introduction to food studies. Belasco presents the current state of food scholarship, prods his readers to think about what they eat in new ways and even offers possibilities for the future. The polemics are presented with a fair and judicious hand, but it is difficult to walk away from this text without seriously reconsidering where your food comes from and what you eat.” Ken Albala, University of the Pacific

Food: The Key Concepts presents an exciting, coherent and interdisciplinary introduction to food studies for the beginner. Food studies is an increasingly complex field, drawing on disciplines as diverse as sociology, anthropology and cultural studies at one end and economics, politics and agricultural science at the other. In order to clarify the issues, the author distills food choices down to three competing considerations: consumer identity; matters of convenience and price; and an awareness of the consequences of what is consumed.

The Literature of Food An Introduction from 1830 to Present Nicola Humble The Literature of Food concerns itself with two sorts of foods: the real and the imagined, and with their continually shifting relationship. This important new book is the first systematic study of the literature of food from the nineteenth century to the present, covering a wide range of issues including the politics of food, food as performance, and its intersections with gender, class, disgust and erotics. Combining the insights of food studies and literary analysis, the author demonstrates how the reading of food within texts can illuminate our reading of food outside them. Carefully designed and structured for use on the growing number of literature of food courses, it considers the food of modernism, post-modernism, crime fiction, the realist novel and children's literature, and asks what happens when we treat cook books as literary texts.

Also available from Bloomsbury

From secret snacks to the changing role of the servant, experimental cook books to the cannibalistic fears in infant picture books, The Literature of Food demonstrates that food is always richer and stranger than we think.

The English Breakfast The Biography of a National Meal, with Recipes Kaori O’Connor Written by award-winning author Kaori O'Connor, The English Breakfast is a highly informative and entertaining history of England's finest meal. Asking how breakfast attained this distinction, what a national meal can tell us about its home nation and whether there's more to the English breakfast than bacon and eggs, this is a truly unique work of food history that you can eat as well as read.

Features around 500 recipes, plus menu plans and table settings

Following the historical analysis are three authentic and complete cookbooks devoted entirely to breakfasts from the heyday of this best of all meals, with some 500 recipes by three celebrated culinary figures of the Victorian age – an elite hostess, a thrifty housekeeper, and a pukka colonial colonel – before the narrative continues up to the present. The Epilogue, new to this paperback edition, covers ‘the devolved breakfast’ (Scottish, Welsh and Irish), the renaissance of the full breakfast during financial crises and the working class 'caff'.

Geographies of Food An Introduction

Includes a variety of learning features and a companion website with additional teaching and learning resources

Mike Goodman, Lewis Holloway, Moya Kneafsey and Damian Maye

This major new textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to contemporary food geographies. It begins by exploring the relationship between food, place and space and then examines the contemporary food 'crisis' in all its dimensions, as well as the many solutions which are currently being proposed.

Drawing on international case studies, this highly illustrated text examines the complex relationships operating between people and processes at a range of geographical scales, from the shopping decisions of a mother in a British supermarket, to the crop choices made by a farmer in West Africa; from high level political negotiations at the World Trade Organization, to the strategies of giant agri-businesses whose activities span several continents. Mike Goodman is Senior Lecturer in Geography at King’s College London, UK. Lewis Holloway is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Geography, University of Hull, UK. Moya Kneafsey is a Reader in Human Geography and teaches agro-food geographies and global sustainability at Coventry University, UK.

Global Food Futures Feeding the World in 2050 Brian Gardner By 2050 the world will be faced with the enormous challenge of feeding 9 billion people despite being affected by climate change, rising energy costs and pressure on food-growing land and other major resources. How will the world produce 70% more food by 2050 to feed a projected extra 2.3 billion people? What will be the impact of food shortages and high prices on areas in crisis such as sub-Sahara Africa? Where will future production growth come from? And how do we balance the need for environmental protection with sustainable agricultural production methods? This is the first text to present a scholarly, balanced approach to the contentious area of food production and supply up to 2050 – offering a readable and well-informed account which tackles the global food situation in all its totality, from agricultural production, technological advance, dietary concerns, population changes, income trends, environmental issues, government food and agriculture policy, trade, financial markets, macroeconomics and food security. Brian Gardner is an independent scholar who has been analyzing, writing about and commenting on European and international agriculture and food policy developments for more than thirty years.

A Theory of Grocery Shopping Food, Choice and Conflict Shelley L. Koch Grocery shopping is a neglected part of the story of how food ultimately gets to our tables. A Theory of Grocery Shopping explores the social organization of food shopping, linking the lived experience of shoppers and retail managers with information from nutritionists, governments, journalists and marketers. The author provides new insights into the often-contradictory messages which shape the way consumers shop and ways the consumer responds. The book challenges the consumer-choice model which places all responsibility on the shopper for making the "right" choice and ignores the larger social forces at work which determine which products reach our shelves. Shelley L. Koch is Visiting Assistant Professor of Sociology and Assistant Director of the Masters of Arts program in Community and Organizational Leadership at Emory and Henry College in Emory, Virginia, USA.

Rice and Beans A Unique Dish in a Hundred Places Edited by Richard Wilk and Livia Barbosa This is a book about the paradox of local and global. An exploration of rice and beans around the world, it uncovers the culinary variances from cultures across Brazil to societies of Western Africa. This is a globe-spanning dish, a simple source of complete nutrition for billions of people, but at the same time each place insists the dish is its own local invention, deeply rooted in its history and culture. Rice and Beans provides an impressive account of the universal significance and symbolism of rice and beans as a cultural cornerstone amidst forces of globalization and nation-building. Richard Wilk is Professor of Anthropology and Gender Studies at Indiana University, USA. Livia Barbosa is Professor of Anthropology and Research Director at the Center of Advanced Studies of the Escola Superior de Propaganda e Marketing in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Food and Identity in the Caribbean Edited by Hanna Garth This compelling volume brings together original essays to explore the relationship between food and identity in everyday life in the Caribbean. Chapters focus on the ways in which consumers align themselves with particular foods as a way of making claims about their identities. Political and economic changes in the Caribbean bring new foods to the contemporary dinner table, a phenomenon that may subsequently destabilize the foundations of culinary identities. Food and Identity in the Caribbean reveals how connections between food and identity persist against the odds whilst in other contexts new relationships between food and identity are forged. Hanna Garth is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Anthropology at UCLA, USA.

Food Ethnographic Encounters Edited by Leo Coleman Food preparation, consumption, and exchange are eminently social practices, and experiencing another cuisine often provides our first encounter with a different culture. This volume presents fascinating essays about cooking, eating, and sharing food, by anthropologists working in many parts of the world, exploring what they learned by eating with others. These are accounts of specific experiences – of cooking in Mombasa, shopping for organic produce in Vienna, eating vegetarian in Vietnam, raising and selling chickens in Hong Kong, and of refugees subsisting on food aid. With a special focus on the experience and challenge of ethnographic fieldwork, the essays cover a wide range of topics in food studies and anthropology, including food safety and food security, cultural diversity and globalization, colonial histories and contemporary identities, and changing ecological, social, and political relations across cultures.

Brazilian Food Race, Class and Identity in Regional Cuisines Jane Fajans

Includes traditional regional recipes

Brazil is a nation of vast expanses and variation of geography, climate, cultures and languages. Patterns of settlement and immigration have profoundly influenced Brazil's culinary culture whilst the food, drink and festivals of each region define the customs, shared views and history vital to identity and cohesion. Brazilian Food explores the role of food in the construction of regional and national identity in Brazil through key case studies, and how cuisine has become a key element in attracting tourists and making aspects of culture known beyond Brazil's borders as cookbooks, ingredients and restaurants move outward in a globalized world.

Alternative Food Networks Cristina Grasseni Gruppi di Acquisto Solidale (solidarity-based purchase groups) have recently come to dominate the Italian Alternative Food Networks scene. Inspired by a solidarity principle, consumers collaborate with producers responsibly, manage the financial and logistic aspects of bulk buying, and deliberate their course of action on a collective and local basis to provide survival opportunities to small farms, local food chains and sustainable agriculture. In this detailed ethnography Christina Grasseni explores the innovative social dynamics of this movement and the reasons for its success, offering theoretical insight and anecdotal evidence of how alternative economies can become embedded in active citizenship practices, cooperative relationships, and social networks. Cristina Grasseni is a tenured Researcher (ricercatore confermato) and a member of the Teaching Board of the Doctoral School on the Anthropology and Epistemology of Complexity at Bergamo University, Italy.

The Never-Ending Feast The Archaeology and Anthropology of Feasting Kaori O'Connor Throughout history, and in all parts of the world, feasts, feasting and drinking have been the medium and arena for the display of hierarchy, status and power; the performance of competition and conflict; the negotiation of loyalty and alliances; the mobilization and exploitation of resources and the creation and consolidation of identity through inclusion and exclusion. The Never-Ending Feast is the first broad, comparative study that draws upon anthropology, archaeology and history to look at the dynamics of feasting across time, cultures and continents in antiquity.

Food and the Self Consumption, Production and Material Culture Isabelle De Solier This important book tackles the assumption that the contemporary self is no longer formed through producing material things, but consuming them in leisure. Focusing on the material culture of food, the book employs ethnographies of 'foodies' to show how the foodie self is shaped not simply as a consumer but as an amateur who engages in both the production and consumption of material culture. The chapters examine a variety of practices, from fine dining and shopping to cooking and blogging, including rare data on how people use media such as cookbooks, food television, and digital food media in everyday life. Isabelle de Solier is a researcher and lecturer at the University of Melbourne, Australia.

Culinary Capital Peter Naccarato and Kathleen LeBesco TV cookery shows hosted by celebrities. On-line grocers and restaurant review sites. Competitive eating contests, carnivals and fairs and food blogs. According to Kathleen LeBesco and Peter Naccarato, each of these provides a productive site for understanding the role of culinary capital in contemporary culture. Food plays an important social role, offering status for those who conform to their culture's culinary norms whilst also providing a means of resistance. Culinary Capital analyzes this phenomenon in action across the landscape of contemporary culture and the intersection with a range of cultural values and ideologies such as gender and economic class. Peter Naccarato is Professor of English and Chair of the Humanities Division at Marymount Manhattan College, USA.

Food Media Celebrity Chefs and the Politics of Ever yday Interference Signe Rousseau There have been famous chefs for centuries, but the celebrity chef business only really began to flourish in the latter half of the twentieth century alongside huge advances in media. Exploring the rise of this enormous entertainment industry and covering key figures such as Jamie Oliver and Rachael Ray, Food Media looks at how the intersections between celebrity culture and food media have come to influence everyday food choices. As the first scholarly critique of food media, this highly topical book will appeal to students of food and cultural studies alike.

Wine and Culture Vineyard to Glass Edited by Rachel E. Black and Robert C. Ulin Wine is one of the most celebrated and appreciated commodities around the world and yet the cultural, social, and historical conditions through which wine is produced and represented is rarely addressed. This path-breaking collection of essays by leading anthropologists discloses important social and cultural issues that inform the production and consumption of wine. The global scope of these essays demonstrates how wine changes as an object of study, commodity and symbol in different geographical and cultural contexts. This book is unique in covering the latest ethnography, theoretical and ethnohistorical research on wine throughout the globe. Rachel E.
