The Culture and History of Food

Massimo Montanari is an expert in food history and culture. Speaking at the Mad Food Camp 2012 Montanari talks about appetite as a guide for nature and culture. 

He talks about medieval appetite and how appetite in gastronomy and cooking has changed over the times - no longer a natural biological method but one with cultural significance.

He looks at how appetite has always been conceived differently by different people and how chefs can use this to meet their diners appetites.

It's a heavy topic but one with lots of significance on the food industry and one that's well worth a watch if you're interested in how the culture of eating has changed over the years.
