"...a welcome addition to the many publications that have been written on the various contexts of the hospitality industry. The writing style is pitched to appeal to all levels of understanding and does not require prior expert knowledge of the subject area.
“Gillespie’s book is an important addition.... It provides a valuable insight into the modern gastronomes environment, it suggests some of the directions this 'ill defined' area may take. Most importantly it generates a plethora of areas of reflection for all and offers a multitude of dissertation ideas for the undergraduate and graduate communities."
Peter Pelham, Program Leader, Thames Valley University, UK
"European Gastronomy into the 21st Century" is a unique text examining the development and origins of European food traditions within social, economic and geographical contexts. Gastronomy is the art and science of good eating and drinking: a concept that extends outwards to embrace wider notions of tradition, culture, society and civilisation. This book provides a rigorous, well researched and much needed treatment of the subject, systematically outlining: the development of European gastronomic tradition, and the social, economic, philosophical and geographical contexts of change; the experiences, philosophies and relative contributions of great gastronomes, past and present; the interplay of traditional and contemporary influences on modern gastronomy; the relationship between gastronomy and and travel and tourism; and salient issues of nutrition, food hygiene and health promotion Taking an all-encompassing look at the subject of gastronomy past, present and future, "European Gastronomy into the 21st Century" uses example menus and case studies to demonstrate the theory.It also provides an insight into the business arena, using key destination restaurants to illustrate management techniques and marketing issues. Accessible and highly structured, the book guides the reader through its wide-ranging and thought-provoking content. The only book of its kind in this subject area. It is completely up-to-date comprehensive guide. It is essential reading for industry practitioners and students of hospitality management and culinary arts courses. See all Product description
