Food Culture & History

The entries in this category (you’ll find the links to the stories in the navigation bar under this category) relate to, well, this quote that I use quite frequently can explain it best:
“…a radical approach to food’s place in civilization would require the whole range of food’s social uses to be considered.” – Mary Douglas

For every single thing we eat, there is a history behind it and an intersection of race, class, sex, gender, political, religious, etc. forces to be considered. I am always cognizant of these forces but sometimes, well, I’ll just tell you how good something tastes and we’ll leave it at that.
