Certainly an eclectic mix of small reports, that is for sure. That would be the best way of describing this book that seeks to look at the rich and diverse underlying cultures that contribute towards Canada's food tradition."The Role of Food in Canadian Expressions of Christianity", "Rational Meals for the Traditional Family: Nutrition in Quebec School Manuals, 1900-1960″, "Gefilte Fish and Roast Duck with Orange Slices: A Treasure for My Daughter and the Creation of a Jewish Cultural Orthodoxy in Postwar Montreal" and "John Bull and Sons: The Empire Marketing Board and the Creation of a British Imperial Food System" are amongst the 23 different sections in this curious book.It is clear that this is not for everyone, despite the fairly diverse contents whereby at least one chapter should appeal. Unfortunately the price and the academic nature will be a barrier too far for many. For anyone with an academic bent studying this sort of thing this is a clear goldmine. It also crosses so many academic disciplines and interests, pulling together research from sources such as menus, cookbooks, government documents, advertisements, media sources, oral histories, memoirs and archival collections."The Role of Food in Canadian Expressions of Christianity", "Rational Meals for the Traditional Family: Nutrition in Quebec School Manuals, 1900-1960″, "Gefilte Fish and Roast Duck with Orange Slices: A Treasure for My Daughter and the Creation of a Jewish Cultural Orthodoxy in Postwar Montreal" and "John Bull and Sons: The Empire Marketing Board and the Creation of a British Imperial Food System" are amongst the 23 different sections in this curious book.It is unfortunate, but understandable, that the book cannot be made more `general access' without compromising its academic integrity.
