Title Food Heritage and Culture: Changing Spaces of Production and Consumption.
Creator RICHES Project
Subject Food Heritage and Culture
Description RICHES has investigated the role of local food projects which engage with the many rich and varied elements of European food culture. The research makes clear that across Europe, there has emerged a dynamic vein of community-led food initiatives, which seek to reconnect people with food cultures that have been threatened by the rise of convenience and fast foods, the erosion of food knowledge and skills, and the emergence of monocultures in food and farming. Such projects have potential to revive endangered practices of food production, and at a community level, can contribute to the transmission of knowledge and skills about food, the preservation of food heritage, and improved understanding and tolerance between different socio-economic groups.
