Gillian Crowther's Eating Culture: An Anthropological Guide to Food is a great introductory read for students (or anyone) interested in thinking about how and why we "do food" in modern societies. -- Cuizine: The Journal of Canadian Food CulturesVom Verlag:
Humans have an appetite for food, and anthropology--as the study of human beings, their culture, and society--has an interest in the role of food. From ingredients and recipes to meals and menus across time and space, Eating Culture is a highly engaging overview that illustrates the important role that anthropology and anthropologists have played in understanding food. Organized around the sometimes elusive concept of cuisine and the public discourse--on gastronomy, nutrition, sustainability, and culinary skills--that surrounds it, this practical guide to anthropological method and theory brings order and insight to our changing relationship with food.
