Food defines us as individuals, communities and nations- we are what we eat and, equally, what we don't eat. When, where, why, how, and with whom we eat are crucial to our identity. Feast & Fast presents novel approaches to understanding the history and culture of food and eating in early modern Europe. It looks at production, provisioning, and purchasing, as well as preparing, preserving, and presenting at the table.
This richly illustrated book showcases hidden and newly-conserved treasures from the Fitzwilliam Museum and other collections in and around Cambridge., and re-contextualises them through historically accurate recreations. It teases out many contemporary and controversial issues - such as the origins of food and food security, overconsumption in times of austerity, and our relationship with animals and nature - through short, research-led entries by some of the world's leading cultural and food historians.
Feast & Fast explores food-related objects, images, and texts from the past in innovative ways and encourages us to rethink our evolving relationship with food.
