Food and drink in feasting - 28-29/02/2020, Copenhagen (Denmark)
Food and Drink are essential to keep us alive, but they are thousand different ways to consume them. Their role in feasting is one aspect in that consumption. The choices, what is eaten and drunk, depend on cultural, social and political perspectives, and have very little to do with information about nutrition and health. So what we eat is a question of food preferences, but how we eat, with whom we eat and where we eat is also important and the different practices are dependent on –in the widest meaning- cultural parameters
