Food Quotes

“Food reveals our souls.” Fine, qtd in Belasco

“Food has a constant tendency to transform itself into situation.” Barthes

I think the Barthes quote is particularly revealing when we think about how a lot of food is advertised these days, with the specific implication that the specific food product will guarantee that a situation is created–family dinner,  a personal moment of escape, etc.
