Some of the world’s most adventurous food historians contribute to this thrice-yearly journal of articles and excerpts from works in progress. The emphasis is on plain writing rather than jargon. In these early issues you are able to see food studies begin to establish itself as a discipline as the tenor of reviews evolve, and calls for contributors and conferences proliferate. Among the articles in this issue from July 1987:

Eating Mushrooms in Yunnan - Thomas Flögel

Third Symposium of Australian Gastronomy - Barbara Santich

The Banquet of Philoxenus - Andrew Dalby

Lifting the Lid on the Patent Conjurer - William Woys Weaver

Calling the Kettle a Pot - Lynne Howard Frazer

The Sals of the Infidels - Charles Perry

Elder: ‘A Good Udder to Dinner’ - Lynda Brown

On Swans, Cranes and Herons, Part 3: Herons - Joop Witteveen


Index to PPC 16-25

As always, there are book reviews as well.
