Feeding Post-Modern Families: Food Preparation and Consumption Practices in New Family Structures

Building on a significant body of sociological and anthropological literature, the aim of this paper is to explore the relationship between post-modern families and food production and consumption practices in order to look for evidence of post-modern themes in this specific area of family life. Using a combination of qualitative research techniques this paper illustrates that post-modernity does seem to have arrived in family food preparation and consumption. However, in some cases, post-modernity is not in isolation: it coexists with few modern and pre-modern themes.
