Food and the Internet: The proceedings of the 20th international ethnological food research conference, organised by the Department of Folklore and Ethnology, Institute of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology, University of Łódź, Poland, 3-6 September 2014, has been published. Edited by Violetta Krawczyk-Wasilewska and Patricia Lysaght, the volume presents an opening paper charting the genesis, aims and progress of the Food Research group, followed by a selection of twenty-four ethnological essays that explore the phenomenon of food culture in the age of globilisation and the spread of computer technology. Nowadays, the Internet empowers post-modern societies to cross the boundaries of their inherited food traditions, resulting in trans-cultural food knowledge, new behavioural patterns, food preferences and eating habits. These and other aspects of the influence of the digital age on culinary culture at local regional and global levels are discussed in this volume.
