Class and Food

One of the nice things about last week’s Guardian article has been the correspondence I’ve received in its wake. One reader, Carolyn Mahoney, sent along her thoughts on what she thinks sociology has to say about the way we eat today. Sadly, this isn’t an avenue of enquiry she has been able to follow, which is a great shame. As her essay shows, which she has allowed me to post here in order to save it from oblivion, she’s a sensitive and thoughtful commentator on food politics.
