The pleasures of food vs. the science of nutrition?

According to Barbro Johansson et al., “Roger Haden addresses the issue of pleasure, which he claims has been marginalized in the treatment of food and eating in the West in favor of modern science’s rationalization of nutrition, diet, food production and processing. ” [1]

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
