Il cibo come cultura

A fascinating essay that explores and investigates a subject of the most enlightening for understanding the history of human societies and their evolution.
The food is culture because it invented and transformed the world. It is culture when it is produced, when it is prepared, when it is consumed. It is the fruit of our identity and a tool to express and communicate it. A great work of synthesis from one of the greatest historician of food.
