The study of food is an underrepresented yet extremely diverse discipline that involves combining many practices to evaluate how humans interact with food and how it shapes us. Cultures are created and defined by what is available to them, and nowhere is this truer than in the kitchen. Foods can shape and influence who we are, where we have been, where we are going, and how we perceive the world around us. I found this introduction eye-opening as even in the short summaries of future readings, they forced me to think and evaluate food in a new and unique way. I have only ever considered food from my perspective, and I am looking forward to expanding my perception into worldviews I haven’t considered before.
