I’ve been invited by Nicola Twilley, the mind behind the excellent Edible Geography, to be part of a series on Grist written by food studies students. As I believe I’ve mentioned, in my more sober moments I’m a PhD student in food science, and you can in fact learn many more things of this nature by reading my first, somewhat banal post in the series. Yes, I used to research whiskey and now I research cheese. I try not to think of it as a step down.
I have a lot of thoughts about the other posts so far in this series and what they bring to the whole picture of “food studies”, but I’m not sure what the right forum to express them is, yet.
