About the Author

David E. Sutton Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Southern Illinois University.


'A charming book about food's role in the construction of memory. It must be important to say something that everybody knows, but is ignored by the specialists. It will stop nutritionists, psychologists and philosophers of mind from systematically ignoring that eating is primarily social, and memory is embedded in taste and smell.' Mary Douglas 'An exellent contribution to the anthropology of the politics of the senses and emotion.' South European Society and Politics 'The recipe [Sutton] has chosen to present, the Kalymnian Filla, is indeed one of the best strategies of remembering Greece and of planning in the present to re-taste it in the future.' South European Society and Politics 'Sutton is a keenly sensitive observer of the everyday routines and subtle variations of life and brings a greatly appreciated seriousness to his study of the performances of everyday life.' Gastronomica 'Sutton has put the topic of food and memory firmly onto the map of anthropological inquiry and theory... Not only to new vistas of investigation and methodology open up, but there is the particularly pleasing side-effect that reading this stimulating book makes one aware of personal, seemingly long-forgotten food memories' Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute 5:1
