We'd like to see their conversation expand here. Please share your thoughts on the prompts below in the Comments. As always, we love to hear from you.
1. What was the most interesting thing you took from this week's episode? Explain.
2. Even today, French cuisine is regarded as the pinnacle of fine dining. How did this come to pass (and why did British cuisine fall out of fashion)? To what extent are you surprised that there has been less cultural backlash against haute cuisine?
5. Laudan and Roberts describe the emergence of the hamburger and its cultural significance. How does the humble hamburger illustrate the importance of abundance and choice? What food(s) do you predict will be "the next hamburger," and why?
