Sharing food – crossing thresholds

June 6, 2013

“everyday food is a necessary element in creating a contrast to festive times, when one eats other things.”[1]

“sharing food does not, importantly, guarantee any other form of engagement.  Food may, indeed provide a means for crossing cultural and geographical thresholds, but this is not an automatic or necessarily a one-way process.”[2]
