Shipping calculated at checkout
The Rosetta Notebooks are published as part of an innovative project at the Mexico City restaurant led by Chef Elena Reygadas.
Each volume offers a short, incisive text written by a renowned scholar who explores aspects of food culture, health, and environmental concerns.
Chef Reygadas notes:
I’m convinced that we should also consider our work as cooks beyond its hedonistic function. In a world like ours—devastated by climate change, social inequality,, systemic violence, sexism, racism, and the degradation of political life, to mention just a few of many ills—a restaurant should provide a platform for reflection and positive contributions to society.
In The Neoliberal Diet, Gerardo Otero, a professor of International Studies at Simon Fraser University, examines the reduction in practical food choice in a world in which most people do not produce their own food, and the foods that are available are predominantly determined by agribusiness. Most notably, the consequences are food scarcity and obesity.
A bibliography and suggestions for further reading are included for anyone interested in deeper examination of these issues.
