In "Food and Love", Jack Goody surveys phenomena as diverse as the uniqueness of the European family, the development of romantic love, the evolution of national and regional cuisines, and the globalization of Chinese food, effortlessly incorporating fascinating examples ranging from Europe to Asia and Africa. Throughout the book, Goody shows that the ethnocentricity of much of Western scholarship has distorted not only the comprehension of the East but also of developments in Europe's past and present.
