From the Back Cover:

Insightful and zesty, this engaging volume encourages readers to sample essays that appeal to their philosophical tastes. Organized thematically like an à la carte menu, the book opens with “Food in Culture & Society,” a glimpse at the inherently social and cultural aspects of food, whetting the appetite for what is to follow, including topics such as: Who decides just what constitutes quality cuisine or foul fare? Is food aesthetically important? How are food and sensuality related? Do we have an ethical responsibility to eat organic, free-range, vegetarian, or locally grown foods?

In addition to contributions by philosophers, the book also includes a rare collection of essays by culinary professionals and food critics who infuse their passion for food with philosophical flavorings. Another installment in the “Epicurean Trilogy” (together with Wine & Philosophy and Beer & Philosophy), Food & Philosophy serves up a healthy helping of timely food-oriented thinking.
