Authors explore the ways that making, eating and thinking about food reveals culture.

Essays are organized into three central themes: Culinary Translations of Identity: From Britain to China; Food as Metaphor in Contemporary German Writing; and Love, Feasting and the Symbolic Power of Food in French Writing.

The essays presented provide theoretical templates for the study of food in a wide range of international film and literature,
