9781847882134: Culinary Art and Anthropology

Culinary Art and Anthropology is an anthropological study of food. It focuses on taste and flavor using an original interpretation of Alfred Gell's theory of the "art nexus." Grounded in ethnography, it explores the notion of cooking as an embodied skill and artistic practice. The integral role and concept of "flavor" in everyday life is examined among cottage industry barbacoa makers in Milpa Alta, an outer district of Mexico City. Women's work and local festive occasions are examined against a background of material on professional chefs who reproduce "traditional" Mexican cooking in restaurant settings.

Including recipes to allow readers to practice the art of Mexican cooking, Culinary Art and Anthropology offers a sensual, theoretically sophisticated model for understanding food anthropologically. It will appeal to social scientists, food lovers, and those interested in the growing fields of food studies and the anthropology of the senses.

About the Author:

Joy Adapon is Honorary Research Fellow at the University of St Andrews.

Review:

I would recommend Culinary Art and Anthropology to anyone interested in the anthropology of food and foodways. It is spicy and refreshing. Social Anthropology Adapon provides a distinctive addition to anthropological food studies in her analysis of food as an art form embedded in a particular social context ... Adapon's writing is excellent, evocatively describing abstract, complex ideas with ethnographic examples. I highly recommend this book for colleagues in food, art, and gender studies.
