Overview

Food is a marker of identity, culture, and class, and it denotes power, routine, leisure, and celebration.

This volume places the study of food in the mainstream of Ottoman history by analy- zing major issues—origins, idetity, minorities, Ottomanization, the "golden age," foreign relations, the nature of modernity— all from the perspective of food.
