I thought that this chapter was enlightening about the field of food studies. I enjoyed how clearly the author explained first what this filed wasn’t and then gave a clear definition of what it actually is. I did not realize how food studies can be interdisciplinary to that degree, because it can be integrated in to everything from social sciences to more hard sciences such as nutrition. All the sections in the chapter helped me to learn more about what food studies actually is versus what we think it is. In reality it can be incorporated into everything we learn because it is as diverse a field as food itself is. I think it could be really helpful to apply what we learn here in other classes take as well, because it’s all intertwined.
