Abstract Food innovation is commonly perceived as the antagonist of food tradition, functioning either as a threat or as an opportunity within societies. However, the interrelation between both terms is much more complex than often assumed by the public and played out by contemporary food marketing. To illustrate their multidimensionality and intricate dynamics as social and historical constructions (e.g., relying on heritagization moments), the present chapter presents the case studies of meat,...

Abstract This paper investigates the communication of canned foods in Flanders between 1945 and 1960. It forwards the antinomy between convenience and care as theoretical framework, it uses three women's magazines as source material, and it subjects this material to the technique of close reading. The results show that the discursive construction of canned foods differs according to the ideology of the magazines. Whereas the agrarian periodical discarded canned foods as careless convenience that...

Food and taste play an essential role in sentiments of belonging and exclusion, and in turn, these sentiments are central to defining one's home as a material or an imagined place. Taste refers to a gustatory sense that makes humans capable of differentiating flavors on the one hand and describes cultural preferences and eating patterns on the other. As a social construction, home can refer to a physical place imbued with domestic notions of privacy and family or be conceived of as a broader geo...
Recent attention to food heritage has been accompanied by new angles and questions within the field of Food Studies. This paper examines these new angles and questions, while aiming to distinguish the various research visions that influence the publications within the framework of what could be called the heritage turn. The historiographical overview proposes a conceptual repertoire that can be used as a frame of reference for future research; it considers the relationship between food, identity...

Fermented meats are unique products, often represented as elements of culinary heritage and identity. Yet, their success has often been compromised throughout history because of health and safety issues. Moreover, contemporary industrialized products are sometimes perceived as of inferior quality. Therefore, novel strategies are emerging to influence quality and healthiness. This is remarkable, since meat fermentation is considered to be a long-established process, and valued as such. Within a c...

The ability for innovation is society’s best asset in its existential need to respond to change. Change is increasingly manifesting itself in food production and supply chains, as well as in the dietary requirements of altering populations and life styles. On the one hand, food innovation is considered by many as a necessary response to major societal and economic challenges. It offers opportunities to improve the food’s shelf life, nutritional value, microbial and toxicological safety, convenie...
In 1875, the city council of Brussels wrote a report on the hostile public opinion towards itinerant trading, when drafting a set of regulations concerning this type of commerce. The authorities concluded that many other European cities, when confronted with the danger of a supposedly disordered public space, had imposed a repressive social policy towards hawkers who wandered the city streets. This article aims to analyse policies concerning the itinerant trade in Brussels during the nineteenth ...

L’article vise a analyser le processus de decision sociopolitique concernant le commerce ambulant a Bruxelles au XIXe siecle, e...
