About the Author

Leo Coleman is Assistant Professor in the Department of Comparative Studies at The Ohio State University.


This is an excellent sampler of recent ethnographic work on food. Most of the chapters take you deep into the significance of food and eating in an unfamiliar cultural setting. The book is accessible to anyone interested in food, though it is going to be most useful to serious students. This could be an excellent text for a course in the anthropology of food. -- Richard R. Wilk * Amazon US *
