Fried ant, anyone? Explore how food, nutrition, taste and culture intersect as we examine the interdisciplinary field of the anthropology of food. Discover new foods and eating practices while examining why we eat (or refuse to) and how we can understand ourselves and others through our dinner plates. Topics include evolutionary, cultural and linguistic explanations for the traditions, taboos and attitudes towards food around the world.
