The Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery has been held annually since 1981. This volume of more than 40 essays presented in 1996 includes pieces on food suitable for travelling, food written about by travel writers and travellers, and food that has itself travelled from its place of origin. The topics range from the domestication of western food in Japan, cooking on board ship in the 17th and 18th centuries, the transmission of the Arabic culinary tradition to medieval England, the influence of travel writers on modern Australian cooking, and the travels of the peanut.
