A Philosophy of Recipes: Making, Experiencing, and Valuing (Hardcover)
This volume addresses the nature and identity of recipes from a cross-disciplinary perspective. Contributors study the values and norms guiding the naming, production, and consumption of recipes, scrutinizing their relationship to territory, makers, eaters, and places of production. Along the road, they uncover the multifaceted conceptual and value-laden questions that a study of recipes raises regarding cultural appropriation and the interplay between aesthetics and ethics in recipe making.With contributors specializing in philosophy, law, anthropology, sociology, history, and other disciplines, this volume will be of vital importance for those looking to understand the complex nature of food and the way recipes have shaped culinary cultures throughout history.
