Summary: As nutrition, food is essential, but in today's world of excess, many have taken food beyond its functional definition to fine art status. From celebrity chefs to amateur food bloggers, individuals take ownership of the food they eat as a creative expression of personality, heritage, and ingenuity. Dwight Furrow examines the contemporary fascination with food and culinary arts not only as global spectacle but also as an expression of control, authenticity, and playful creation for individuals in a homogenized (and increasingly public) world.
