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 December 1991. 

Manifold Absurdity - Rose Arnold

The Pontefract Liquorice Industry - Anon

The Rise and Fall of Home-made Anglo-American Tomato Ketchup - Andrew F. Smith

A Frisian Kitchen - Joop Witteveen
