About the Book

Vegetables, fruit, meat, desserts; dishes and rituals connected to food. From the artichoke to the torte, from male bonding at the grill to a New Year’s Eve dinner. Svetlana Slapšak, professor of anthropology of antiquity and gender, playfully explores both the history of ideas connected to food and specific recipes, mainly from the European-Mediterranean area from antiquity to today, but she also wanders into Asia, the Amazon forests and the time of early American civilizations.
