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 1990:

Romania: Cooking, Literature and Politics — a cookbook from Moldova, 1841 - Henry Notaker

Buddhist Attitudes towards Food: aspects of tradition & practice in South-East Asia - Anthony Christie

Dibs, Dabs, Lemons and Love Hearts: an investigation into sherbet sweets - Laura Mason

The Fifth Symposium of Australian Gastronomy: Adelaide, March 1990 - Barbara Santich

Homer Reflects on Hospitality - Elizabeth Minchin

A Treasury of Cakes: items from the ‘Lady Gomme archive’ - by kindness of David Holbrook

As always, there are book reviews as well.
