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 1998.

Mae Khloa Hoa Paa (‘Head Cook from the Forest’) - Su-Mei Yu

A Nuanced Apology to Rotted Barley - Charles Perry

A Study of The Compleat Confectioner by Hannah Glasse, Part Three - Fiona Lucraft

Richard Johnson or John Farley?, - Peter Targett

Of Food, Prejudice, and Discovery - Chitrita Banerji

The Bagel and its Origins — Mythical, Hypothetical, and Undiscovered, Cyril D. Robinson

As always, there are book reviews as well.
