The Taste for Civilization
- Food, Politics, and Civil Society
- By: Janet A. Flammang
- Narrated by: Pam Ward
- Length: 12 hrs and 56 mins
This book explores the idea that table activities - the mealtime rituals of food preparation, serving, and dining - lay the foundation for a proper education on the value of civility, the importance of the common good, and what it means to be a good citizen. The arts of conversation and diplomatic speech are learned and practiced at tables, and a political history of food practices recasts thoughtfulness and generosity as virtues that enhance civil society and democracy.
