For a long time I have been thinking of adding a column “Guestspeak”. There is so much to write about food and food practices that I realised the task is mammoth. The main purpose of this column would be to have contributions from food explorers to widen itiriti’s ways of understanding food codes, eating out and of course sweet trails. So interested contributers could send in short abstracts on food as a commodity of circulation, food as it is received in cultural practices and of course recipes. Topics on diverse cultural practices related to food are welcome. Word limit (500-1000 words). Feel free to write in for any clarificatons.
