Food is more than a matter of taste.
Edited by Dr Carody Culver, Griffith Review 78: A Matter of Taste serves up a smorgasbord of essays, fiction and more about what we eat and how we talk about it. This edition explores food as spectacle and status symbol, as fad and fantasy and as capital and cultural currency. Taking in table manners, fast and slow food, the dilemma of diets and the ethics of production, from sautéed and sous vide to nothing but raw, Griffith Review 78 is polishing up the cutlery and preparing to put it all on a plate.
A Matter of Taste is out now. This issue features work by Kate Gibbs, James Suzman, Nornie Bero, Matthew Evans, Adam Lia, Andrew Jakubowicz and more.
