Do you eat to live, or are you one of those passionate souls who live to eat? Food is certainly enjoying a high profile at present. With hit TV shows, social sites, glossy ranks of gastro-porn at every newsagent, and the return of the dinner party, many of us have headed back towards the kitchen as well as continuing our passion for dining out. Food contains an eternal contradiction. On the one hand it’s essential for life – fact in Ancient Egypt, the words for ‘bread’ and ‘life’ were the same! But food is also as subject to the vagaries of fashion as heels or hemlines. Who’d have guessed the world’s best restaurant, Noma, in Copenhagen, Denmark, would feature oxalis and Christmas tree fronds on its menu?
Now, there’s a new way for us to mull over passions of the dinner table with the release of a delicious and unique game, The Art of Conversation: Food Edition. Following the success of their original title, The Art of Conversation, creators Louise Howland and Keith Lamb have adapted the recipe to dish up new angles and avenues to think, and talk, about food, cooking, eating and dining.
TAOC serves up 300 culinary entrees on topics like food destinations, cooking classes, slow food, fusion, indulgent food, leftovers and bizarre food ideas. It includes a comprehensive guidebook to culinary communication, complete with fascinating endnotes.
