Synopsis

The subject of the 2010 Oxford Symposium on Food is one of the most fecund branches of food studies, ranging across a surprising variety of ingredients. The international gathering that is the Symposium responded vigorously with a series of essays touching on the foodways of cultures like Korea, China, Ethiopia, ancient Rome, Japan, Transylvania, Indonesia, Turkey, Canada, the United States, Ireland, Cyprus, Siberia and the United Kingdom, not to mention central Asia, Holland, Alaska, Africa and Israel. As well as wandering the globe, the authors travel in time drawing on disciplines such as archaeology, orthodox history, oral history and iconography. There are discussions of the role of cured meats in the military diet, the long history of salt cod in the Mediterranean, the art of making sausages in ancient Israel, the anthropology of Ethiopian starch fermentation, the medical history of marmalade and the science of the dry fermentation of sausages.
