Digest: A Journal of Foodways and Culture, online since 2012, was founded in 1977 by the Foodways Section of the American Folklore Society. It welcomes the exchange of ideas and resources among food writers, scholars, and students in diverse disciplinary areas of interest and practice, including teaching, museum curation, archiving, and professional culinary arts. The journal aims to promote, stimulate, and encourage study of the cultural and social dimensions of food production, preparation, consumption, and other aspects of food use, and often emphasizes food’s role in individual and group expression. Digest publishes peer reviewed lead essays, research notes, reviews of relevant media and productions, and creative endeavors such as photo-text essays, contextualized or interpreted recipes, podcasts, representations of food-related archival collections and other assemblages.
