This current issue offers some of the best and certainly some of the most varied writing that Gastronomica has presented. We have here all the disciplines, the widest possible geographical and topical spread, and always a discreet wallow in controversy and sensuality. The old term for such a collection is “omnibus”—to, from, and for all—and on this bus we had the best ride.
This issue contains twelve previously published articles from back issues of Gastronomica. Some readers may not have access to these original articles on the JSTOR system. You may gain access to the original articles for this session simply by clicking the article's title below.
