Feed Your Head

Matters of Taste is excited to develop our repertoire with short takes on recent or relevant publications in culinary history, travel, cooking, and the ways that food can connect us across generations and geography. This is not a promotion or sales initiative, but instead a place to discuss the vibrant academic and literary field of culinary history.  Click here to browse the bookshelf.  Please note: this part of the site is under construction, so please check in every now and then.

Food, after all, happens every day; it’s intimately associated with all our appetites and thoroughly entangled with the myriad social and economic conditions that press upon a life.
