About this item

A selection from scholarly papers delivered at the 20th International Ethnological Food Research Conference in September 2014.

The book is divided into the same six categories as was the conference: The Internet As Local, National and Global Cookbook and Culinary Research Tool; Food, Marketing and the Internet; The Internet and Food Values: Ethics, Aesthetics, Environment, Health and Lifestyle; Food, Gender, Identity and the Internet; Food Blogging as a New Genre; and Food: Ancient and Medieval in the Light of Internet Source. Examples of topics covered are as follows: internet recipes, the comeback of homemade food, traditional Slovene dishes, and mushrooms; Irish food as a tourist attraction, local food discourse in Quebec, and communication of food information through the internet in Japan; slow food in Scotland, the Mediterranean diet, and seasonal food; food and gender in Brazilian websites, an example of Hungarian and Polish food blogging; and a database of medieval plant names.
