Reviews

Published in Association with the Society for the Anthropology of Food and Nutrition (SAFN) and in Collaboration with Rachel Black and Leslie Carlin

"In sum, Food Culture is a useful resource text, especially for teaching. Each chapter is well written and organised in a way that is easy for the reader to access; they give robust and clear overviews of methodological approaches, contextualise these theoretically, and provide examples and case studies of how they can be used... Food Culture is more than a methods' textbook and it will be an invaluable resource for higher-level undergraduates and postgraduates in that it offers practical, conceptual, and case study content... The book's value also extends beyond a student audience, and its intellectual rigour ensures it offers something new for more established research- ers. As such, it is a welcome and useful addition to the Food Studies canon." - Anthropos
