A fantastic collection of food history, theory, and aesthetic. I am drawn to the format of Granta, so perhaps I am predisposed to enjoy this, but I read every word of this edition. This is an excellent bit of non-technical food writing that would work well as an adjunct to traditional education in food or, perhaps, anthropology.A fine collection of stories and essays.
I quoted a paragraph from this in my book Household Stories/Katei Monogatari. Credited, of course.I bought GRANTA for years, but at some point during my 26 years in Japan, fell off the subscription list. I think in retrospect I was simply running out of bookshelf room and lapsed... rather regret it now.
excellent black and white photos of vegetables.
