Abstract: In Word of Mouth: What We Talk About When We Talk About Food, sociology professor Priscilla Parkhurst Ferguson explores a variety of texts, such as menus, movies, children’s stories, and comic strips, that are relevant to diverse aspects of the culinary cultures of the United States and France. Her cultural reading looks for “the telling example, the vivid illustration, and the revelatory quote” (p.xix) to find the exemplary and construct social relations, i.e., structures, in the food world.
