The Commission is a multidisciplinary working group, organizing biennial symposia on substantive issues in food history, with emphasis on the 19th & 20th centuries. The 19 contributions from 10 countries published here are all concerned with historical developments in food & nutrition-related aspects of material culture, with reference to thematic & regional case studies. The papers are divided into 3 areas: The Kitchen, The Table, & New Technologies. They begin with the hearth & stove & proceed via table settings to industrial food production, such as methods of processing, preservation & packaging, including distribution structures.
