Food for thought?
Material methods for exploring food and cooking
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

Food is the stuff of the everyday. Whether looking at its origins, cultural relations, environmental impacts or economic implications, social researchers have long been fascinated with food. With this chapter we centre food and food-making practices, specifically food preparation and cooking, exploring methods that allow for investigation of the effects of food as object. Advancing current methodological approaches to foodstuffs, such as the biography of things or 'follow the thing', we look at the transformation of food; from ingredient, to par-cooked, to creation. With methods of talking, doing and observing, in the guise of cook-alongs and food-for-thought discussions, the material transformations of food are seen anew.
