But this is not the deeper purpose of our book. We might shock our readers, but our aim is to encourage them to reconsider their own definitions of “real” food—of what, literally, qualifies as dinner. We want to prepare students who are considering anthropological fieldwork for those very real, and sometimes very awkward, situations that arise—and to think of these awkward moments not as mere “problems” to be overcome (although often they seem that way in the short term) but as methodologically crucial moments when the friction between anthropologists’ assumptions and informants’ cuisine can produce new understandings.

I asked a young man named Laurie in 2005 why he did not like my rice pudding, since he and other local people very much like rice, milk, and sugar, the main ingredients, in other contexts. “Rice shouldn’t be sweet,” was the clearest answer I received.
