"The Hungry Eye: Eating, Drinking, and European Culture from Rome to the Renaissance" by Leonard Barkan

In “The Hungry Eye” Leonard Barkan guides readers from ancient Rome to the High Renaissance as he explores the central role of food in Western history. Barkan argues that the presence of food – in art, theater, literature, philosophy, and religion – goes beyond mere ornamentation or coincidence; rather, food, drink, and dining practices shed a unique light on Western culture and Western values.
