Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Anne Bower's Reel Food is an intellectual feast, where each essay serves a delicious new course filled with meaty morsels and delightful aromas. It provides thoughtful lenses in which to view the culinary dimensions of all films, but be prepared to reexamine the taste sensations of traditional food movies, such as Chocolat, Babette's Feast, Eat Drink Man Woman, and Tortilla Soup. I ignored the incessant urge to put the book down and head to out to the video rental store to pick up the films devoured in this book. I'll never look at a movie without seeing its culinary dimensions in new ways. So, make some popcorn and settle down in your easy chair—you're headed for a great read." — Andrew F. Smith, editor-in-chief, Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America

"From sci-fi to horror, from romance to adventure, the films discussed in this collection are enriched by cogent analyses of the ways food is used to signal issues of cultural identity, assimilation, and conflict. With Reel Food, you won't need popcorn." — Darra Goldstein, Editor, Gastronomica: The Journal of Food and Culture

"Reel Food is the go-to book for anyone interested in the rich intersections between food and film studies. The compelling, wide-ranging essays gathered here demonstrate that if you are interested in film, then you can't ignore food, and vice versa
." — Doris Witt, author of Black Hunger: Soul Food and America
