An insightful map of the landscape of social meals, Eating Together: Food, Friendship, and Inequality argues that the ways in which Americans eat together play a central role in social life in the United States. Delving into a wide range of research, Alice P. Julier analyzes etiquette and entertaining books from the past century and conducts interviews and observations of dozens of hosts and guests at dinner parties, potlucks, and buffets. She finds that when people invite friends, neighbours, or family members to share meals within their households, social inequalities involving race, economics, and gender reveal themselves in interesting ways: relationships are defined, boundaries of intimacy or distance are set, and people find themselves either excluded or included.

Review:

"I eagerly read Eating Together: Food, Friendship, and Inequality, engulfing new insights offered in her cultural and sociological analysis of the significance of domestic hospitality in people's lives. An excellent, much needed contribution to food studies as well as sociology and gender studies." --Psyche A. Williams-Forson, author of Building Houses out of Chicken Legs: Black Women, Food, and Power

From the Author:

 Alice Julier is an associate professor and the master's program director of food studies at Chatham University.
