This fascinating volume examines the impact that rapid urbanization has had upon diets and food systems throughout Western Europe over the past two centuries. Bringing together studies from across the continent, it stresses the fundamental links between key changes in European social history and food systems, food cultures and food politics. Contributors respond to a number of important questions, including: when and how did local food production cease to be sufficient for the city and when did improved transport conditions and liberal commercial relations replace local by supra-regional food supplies? How far did the food industry contribute to improved living conditions in cities? What influence did urban consumers have? Food and the City in Europe since 1800 also examines issues of food hygiene and health impacts in cities, looks at various food innovations and how ’new’ foods often first gained acceptance in cities, and explores how eating fashions have changed over the centuries.

Review:

'Food history and urban studies are the hottest topics in Europe today: this book combines both. Big cities - London, Paris, Berlin, Brussels, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Prague and other urban magnets in the last two centuries - are huge, hungry bellies. Volume, modernity, risks. Fusion, fraud, flavour and fashion. It is all on the menu of this rich, diverse and well-balanced book.' Marc Jacobs, Catholic University of Brussels, Belgium 'Food and the City reinforces the idea present in recent studies of eating habits that food should no longer just be seen as offering insights into consumption patterns and that food is rich with social and cultural meanings.' Social History of Medicine 'This collection provides not only some extremely interesting studies of the difficulties in feeding cities well, but a fascinating glimpse of the roots of problems with which we still grapple.' Agricultural History Review
