Food As Culture

Massimo Montanari



A gripping essay that delves into and researches one of the most illuminating ways to understand the history of human societies and their development. Jacques Le Goff Food is culture because it has invented and transformed the world. It is culture when it is produced, prepared and when it is consumed. It is the fruit of our identity and an instrument for expressing and communicating who we are. A seminal synthesis by one of the greatest food historians around.
