Comprehensive in its examination of changing food practices, this volume powerfully connects consumption, production, built environments, home kitchens, hawker centres, and the sensory experience of food. It is a must read for anyone interested in how a multidisciplinary analysis can enliven the study of food in diverse cities." Daniel Bender Canada Research Chair in Global Culture and Director Culinaria Research Centre University of Toronto "In the many reflections for SG50, nothing comes closer to Singapore''s identity than the city-state''s diversified, multi-ethnic and delectable foods. The 10 chapters in this book are a much welcomed multidisciplinary academic intervention of the quintessential Singaporean passion of eating and snacking. This book savours all its foodscapes, foodways and cuisines through its street foods, hawker centres, kopitiams and restaurants. Singapore''s food obsession best undergirds Joseph Nye''s ''soft power'', an expression of ''Eurasian'' cultural fusion, Asian gastronomical delights and cosmopolitan consumption which variously defines Singapore''s national identity, its innovative expressions, its tourist beaconing, its recollection of ''sensory heritage'', its transcultural involvement, and its global-local statement. Sample Singapore''s mouth-watering creativity through its social, cultural, political, historical, and economic taste buds. This is definitely a digestible book worth consuming." Victor R Savage National University of Singapore "Journey through kampungs and kopitiams and find out why food is so important in Singapore culture! An essential read for anyone seeking to understand Singapore food!" Leslie Tay Author, blogger and self-proclaimed gastro-geek http://ieatishootipost.sg "Food, Foodways and Foodscapes is an extraordinary and a rare book that is simultaneously richly descriptive, deeply evocative, and sharply analytical. It provides a welcome and much needed shift in the locus of discussion from the over-written spaces of restaurants and TVs in North Atlantic nations, to the streets, the home, and the web, in a city-state in southeast Asia, which is precisely what makes it theoretically fecund." Krishnendu Ray New York University & President, Association for the Study of Food & Society "This is one of the most accessible and comprehensive book to chart Singapore''s food history … It is an excellent starting point for anyone keen to understand the ways in which Singaporeans think about and enjoy, food."

Food And Foodways In Asia

Food is an important cultural marker of identity in contemporary Asian societies, and can provide a medium for the understanding of social relations, family and kinship, class and consumption, gender ideology, and cultural symbolism. However, a truly comprehensive view of food cannot neglect the politics of food production, in particular, how, when, from where and even why different kinds of food are produced, prepared and supplied. Food and Foodways in Asia is an anthropological inquiry providing rich ethnographic description and analysis of food production as it interacts with social and political complexities in Asia’s diverse cultures. Prominent anthropologists examine how food is related to ethnic identity and boundary formation, consumerism and global food distribution, and the invention of local cuisine in the context of increasing cultural contact. With chapters ranging from the invention of 'local food' for tourism development, to Asia's contribution to ‘world cuisine,’ Food and Foodways in Asia will be a fascinating read for anyone interested in the anthropology of food and/or Asian studies.
