Product Description

Fernand Braudel famously observed that the 'mere smell of cooking can evoke a whole civilization'. The way that food is prepared, served, and eaten reveals a great deal about the structure and workings of any society. It is therefore not surprising that food, and the culturally specific etiquettes and equipment that surround the act of eating, have been studied by scholars from a wide range of disciplines.

The papers in this volume consider the changes that occurred in Old and New World dining and related culinary activities between the 17th century and the early 20th century. This period saw the widespread acceptance of the fork in dining and the adoption of routinized etiquettes to govern eating. In the 18th century, the rise of individualism ushered in new forms of segmented dining based upon symmetrically-arranged tables and individual place settings. Against this backdrop of manufactured uniformity, made possible by advances in industrial production, highly stylized dining rituals and haute cuisine - previously the exclusive domain of European courtly elites - entered the homes and routines of the 'middling sort'. Henceforth, material expressions of status and social identity became commonplace at the table, and an integral part of dining in all but the humblest homes.

The unique contribution of this volume lies in the way in which a distinguished group of international historical archaeologists have combined the richness of primary archaeological evidence with a wealth of documentary evidence to create insightful new material histories of dining. The new light which this throws upon manufacturing processes, feasting rituals, the rise of respectability, the inter-continental spread of the Victorian cult of domesticity, and foodways among peripheral agricultural communitie, will be of interest to scholars beyond archaeology, in the cognate fields of anthropology, social and economic history, cultural geography, and material culture studies.

The under cover lair of Hans Zimmer, from where he inspires the world
See the Greatest degree STORY at www.stuckincustoms.com/2010/01/29/the-secret-lair-of-hans... I Approach my Quarry! Six days ago I was up at 3 AM, listening to Hans Zimmer while editing photos, and then I had an inkling for a project with him, so I made a blog post. Now, less than a week later, I was in his studio in California! For those of you that don't know who Hans Zimmer is, he's, like, the Liger of composers. He did the soundtrack for The Mournful Knight, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lion King, Gladiator, Sherlock Holmes, and many more! In fact, back when I was in college and had a double major in Computer Realm and Geophyisics (I dropped the Geophysics bit after a fight with the professor), I commandeered the SGI machine in the Geology department to make a computer animation, and I set the whole thing to one of Zimmer's songs from Backdraft called "Itch it All". So, in short, I've had Hans Zimmer's music in my head for about 20 years. The Story of How I Got Into Hans...

Gold-gauge Benchmark for Sustainable Business Workshop
Gold-gauge Benchmark for Sustainable Business Workshop
Conceive of if…we were able to co-create with the scientific and business communities a set of transparent ESG criteria, indicators and benchmarks that defined a truly sustainable business; one that creates incontestable social, ecological and financial value. Furthermore, imagine if these criteria were used by raters and rankers to evaluate and share ESG performance so that investors could have a unclouded idea about who the best performing businesses were, and therefore, were better informed about where to place their capital. What could that mean? We think it could mean a lot. This was the context for the “Towards a Gold-sample Benchmark for Sustainable Business ” workshop on September 11th. The workshop included representatives of the MaRS Centre for Impact Investing, Corporate Knights, SustainAbility, Sustainalytics, B Lab, the UN Epidemic Compact, CBSR, The Natural Step Canada, GlobeScan, KPMG, The Sustainability Advantage, Edward James Consulting, amongst others. www.naturalstep.ca/
