Feeding the Storm [virtual]

Willow G. Mullins (University of Edinburgh)

‘Feeding the Storm,’ begins with a question: There was a storm coming. What food do you buy when you know there is a storm on the way? What are the things you will need to get you through the weather? The answer seems to lie in the space where climate and culture co-produce one another. Warren Belasco has argued that food reveals a tension between practicality, what is available to cook, and desire, what we want to eat. Storm food, which must be bought in the moment for events and extremities to come, brings that tension to a crisis point.
