Food Geography

Broadly stated, Food Geography is the study of where our food comes from – and why. It is a field that seeks to answer questions about patterns of production and consumption, the geographic origins of crop domestication, and even  spatial patterns of cuisine and cooking methods. Learning a bit about where our food comes from enriches and enlivens a meal, and connects us to larger global stories – peoples and cultures that might seem very distant but are actually quite connected.
