Platform for Mediterranean Foodways

The Platform for Mediterranean Foodways has been set up under the auspices of the Mediterranean Institute.

This platform draws in a specific interest in the study of food by placing it at the centre of a broader discussion on the socio-historic, cultural and scientific studies on the wellbeing and history of different Mediterranean societies, as well as of the Mediterranean region as a whole. Food, food stories, consumption, production, trade, nutrition, and distribution patterns say a lot about society as we know it today while studying the historic, geographic and changing agro-economic contexts that lead to the contemporary situation.
