The Anthropologists' Cookbook
Kegan Paul International, 1997 - Cookery, International - 248 pages
In the classic cookbook tradition, contributors (in this case, anthropologists from all over the world), include a list of ingredients and details on how to prepare and serve the meals. But, more than a list of remarkable recipes, this book provides a feast of insights into the varied phenomena of intercultural cuisine from an anthropological point of view, ranging from an examination of the significance of special dishes through general discussions about the preparation of food in different cultures, to an analysis of the symbolic and structural significance of food and eating.--Cf. bk. jkt.
