"Over the course of his exemplary career Alan Warde has emerge as an important - perhaps the important - theorist of eating and dining. In The Practice of Eating Warde provides a detailed analysis of the practice of dining and culinary production. Building on the centrality of consumption as a form of action, Warde synthesizes a wide range of theoretical approaches, applicable not only to the gastronomic world but in all corners of sociability. Warde has developed an approach to foodways as practice that belongs with the most trenchant works of contemporary theory." Gary Alan Fine, Northwestern University and author of Kitchens: The Culture of Restaurant Work "Rejecting conventional accounts of consumer choice, Alan Warde examines the routinized and habitual character of eating as a social practice. In a field that is prone to political rhetoric and media speculation, The practice of eating offers conceptual clarity and empirical rigour, a compelling synthesis of more than a decade s research on the sociology of consumption." Peter Jackson, University of Sheffield "In this accomplished new book, Alan Warde conducts a substantive analysis of aspects of eating situations and performances in the light of theory, paying due attention to its various contexts. The growing ranks of sociologists in the broad area of food studies will welcome this ambitious attempt to unify a hitherto dispersed and disparate field by devising an comprehensive theory of how we eat." Christel Lane, University of Cambridge
