Food is culture
Food is about sustenance and pleasure, about conviviality and showing and receiving love. It is also an important part of culture - one that impacts on everyday life for everybody. It is the way an immigrant community insinuates its culture in a new homeland. Claudia Roden will talk about her experiences researching food.
Claudia Roden is the author of ten popular and critically-acclaimed cookery books, including: A Book of Middle Eastern Food; Coffee; Picnic: The Complete Guide to Outdoor Food; Mediterranean Cookery; The Food of Italy; The Book of Jewish Food: An Odyssey from Samarkand and Vilna to the Present Day; Claudia Roden’s Invitation to Mediterranean Cooking; Tamarind and Saffron: Favourite Recipes from the Middle East; Arabesque: Sumptuous Food from Morocco, Turkey and Lebanon; and The Food of Spain.
