Soup & Bread is a free weekly soup dinner at the Hideout, a bar and music venue in Chicago.

Each week we round up a handful of chefs, caterers, musicians, writers, artists, and home cooks of every persuasion to donate pots of homemade soup. Any soup. We serve them up to all comers — along with fresh bread donated by local bakeries and the occasional pie or cookies baked by enterprising participants — until the pots run dry or the late-night jazz guys kick us out. It was designed to be an easy, low-key way to get folks out of the house and socializing in the dead of a dark Chicago winter — not to mention, when we started this up in 2009 our friends were losing their jobs left and right. At times these past few years it’s seemed the entire city could use a nice hot bowl of soup.

We're Linda Norris and Sarah Crow and we both like food. This is The Pickle Project, an ongoing effort to document and share traditional foodways in communities large and small throughout Ukraine as a way of understanding issues of sustainability, change and community.

Why pickles? We've both had a long-standing interest in food as an expression of culture. And in Ukraine, pickled everything serves as a visible, important expression of culture.

aesthetics of food. As one philosopher suggests, some interesting aesthetic functions of food exceed the
aesthetic functions of art.

While art is often expected to provide universal, timeless insights, a
significant aesthetic function of food is its reflection and enforcement of historically and culturally
located practices and belief systems.
Our paper distinguishes feminist aesthetic/ethical analysis of food from analyses of food in
philosophy of art. Philosophers of art commonly distinguish between "proximal" sense faculties (taste
and smell) and "distal" sense faculties (sight and hearing). The former are central to perception of
aesthetic characteristics of food, while the latter are central ....

Draft paper for ‘Rethinking food production-consumption: integrative perspectives
on agrarian restructuring, agro-food networks, and food politics’ workshop held at
University of California, Santa Cruz, 30 November-1st December, 2001.
1. Introduction
A contradiction between high output and improved quality is often thought to run through
the food sector. This contradiction is potentially of long standing. For instance, Felipe
Fernandez-Armesto (2001) shows in his recent history of food that humans have long
been entranced by the dream of ‘abundance’. Citing examples from ancient Egypt,
Mesopotamia, medieval England, and revolutionary France, he asserts that...
