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 1988:

Inca Food: Animal and Mineral - Sophie Coe

Who Wrote Soyer’s Pantropheon? - Michael McKirdy

The Crab-Stuffed Orange - Thomas Flögel

The Harlot of Marseilles - Alan Davidson

The Eater’s Guide to Chinese Characters by James D. McCawley - Michael D. Coe

The Wedding Feast of Caranus the Macedonian by Hippolochus - Andrew Dalby

Storm in an Apple Barrel - Audrey le Liévre

As always, there are book reviews as well.
