Food TV, Hardback Book


Working at the intersection of media studies, food studies and cultural studies, FoodTV serves up an accessible, critical introduction to food television, providing readers with a solid foundation for understanding how culinary culture became pop culture via the medium of television.

FoodTV also elucidates how food and its preparation have been central to the creative and formal evolution of television itself.

As Oren elucidates, television has been, and remains, a formidable force that not only shapes food culture, but has acted as the arena where all matters edible link up with major preoccupations over domesticity and public space, globalization, immigration and nationalism, capitalism and labor, identity politics, difference and distinction.
