Abstract

The present work offers the first translation into Portuguese of the oldest Greek gastronomic text that has come down to us, albeit only in fragmentary form. The poem written by the Sicilian author Archestratus (4th century BC) is an account of the sophisticated food eaten by the aristocratic elites with enough economic power to buy the most expensive ingredients (such as high quality fresh fish) and to undertake the gastronomic tours implied in the text. In chapter I, a survey is offered of the biographical data pertaining to the author and of the transmission and reception of his work up to the present day. This is followed by the translation of the 60 fragments (chapter II), with notes and photographs that illustrate some of the dishes. In chapter III, a detailed analysis is offered of the poem’s contribution to the historical study of food in ancient Greece. Here, “Archestratus’ cuisine” is considered from five perspectives: produce, culinary methods, utensils, furniture and production agents. Attention may be drawn to the use of maps showing the whereabouts of ingredients used in the confection of the recipes present in the work and a detailed study of the terminology used in the poet’s kitchen. Extra features in the book are appendices with some of the recipes, updated according to modern standards; bibliography (editions and secondary literature); and indices of the food-orientated fauna and flora mentioned (in Portuguese, with Latin scientific name and Greek term).

Abstract

The studies collected in this volume reflect, in general, upon food given its extraordinary cultural and identity value. With different approaches to food heritage, whether from a linguistic perspective, or from a more literary or cultural analysis, with a due historical, social and spatial framework, the set of papers highlight the importance of this topic, from classical antiquity up to the present day. In fact, food and everything that goes with it lead us on a journey revealing man’s way of life and his relationship with nature and other living beings. The thirty-four contributions of this volume are gathered in the following chapters: 1. Food: intangible heritage; 2. Food and literary heritage; 3. Food and linguistic heritage; 4. Food: health and wellbeing; 5. Food: society and culture; 6. Food and intercultural dialogue. With this volume it is also intended to open up perspectives on new research areas of food heritage as an essential source of knowledge for today.

Abstract

The book investigates how the Portuguese Culinary Heritage (mainly from Portugal and Brazil) offers a wide range of tastes originating from the travels (long, uncertain and frequently painful) of the Portuguese to unknown or only scantily-known lands from the start of the Discovery Era (15th and 16th centuries) to the most recent migratory waves (20th century). Settlers and emigrants carried in their trunks a wide range of souvenirs, among which culinary recipes may be included. Although the new lands produced high expectations, homesickness with regard to their culture and costumes was never absent. The book is divided into two parts. Part I deals with the Greco-Roman and Medieval cultural roots of Portuguese food (Chapters 1 and 2). Part II, with nine chapters, deal with the multicultural encounters between Portuguese, Brazilians and other populations. The Portuguese-African dialogue started in the 15th and 16th centuries (Chapter 3). Two complementary comments are discussed: the first comprises the integration and adaptation of the Portuguese Food Recipes in Portuguese America of the 16th and 17th centuries (Chapter 4) and the second deals with the inclusion of products from the Americas during the Modern Age (Chapter 5). Five studies are devoted to the history of food in the state of Paraná (Supply in Chapter 6; Gender Issues in Chapter 7; Immigration in Chapter 9; Regional Recipes in Chapter 10), to the regional gastronomy in contemporary Brazilian food history (in the state of Piauí in Chapter 11) and to a revision of the chapter called ‘Ementa Portuguesa’ from Câmara Cascudo´s book História da Alimentação no Brasil (Chapter 8).

Abstract

They were received and adapted in the Brazilian culture. The work is organized in four parts, each one with several chapters, approaching food heritage from Classical Antiquity to the present. Part I concerns eating practices and hospitality in the Greek and Roman worlds, the two great civilization founders of Europe. The main goal of its chapters is to demonstrate that some contemporary food habits are very strongly connected to a Classical Mediterranean heritage. The underlining of these cultural bounds between nowadays food culture and its past allows us to understand the real importance of food on the shaping of everybody’s cultural identity. Part II focus on food in the Middle Ages, particularly on its moral and religious issues. The social contexts considered are the king’s table and the monastic communities, because those are the most well documented realities we have. Part III discusses the transition from the Middle Ages to the Modern Era, taking as example, once again, the food habits of the royal family and also of a university college. With the Portuguese Discoveries came a great impulse on sugar production and, consequently, on the manufacturing, commerce and consumption of sweets, a thematic central on this part. Part IV is dedicated to the contribution of Portuguese heritage in structuring a discourse on Brazilian cuisine and to the early appearance on the Brazilian colonial society of myths, beliefs, and taboos concerning breastfeeding (a field of research usually marginal on Food History).

Abstract

The tendency of 21st century studies about the table has been to privilege as multi and transdisciplinary approaches. In fact, it is in its holistic sense that we use the term table, a universe that encompasses goods, people and ideas. Reflect today toward the table constitutes a process of careful inquiry into three of the main pillars of the man’s relationship with food, throughout its history: food, health and culture. This book is the subject of Lusophone Tables and is organized in two volumes, containing five parts and a total of 25 chapters. The 13 chapters of the first volume focus on two central themes: food under the therapeutic and symbolic prism. In Part I (Therapeutic Tables: when food is medicine), it is evident that, historically, medical writings preceded the culinary literature. Part II (Sacred Tables: when food is a symbol) is referred to the table as answer and vehicle of dialogue with the transcendent.

Abstract

The study of Ancient History is a process encompassing several fields of knowledge, various methods, several types of sources, sometimes including comparisons with other civilizations of antiquity or from other periods. Historiographical texts raise a methodical criticism which comprehend data from archaeology, but also from literature and, within this range, theatre, rhetoric, dialogues and specific treaties of the several disciplines. As a reflection of such a multidisciplinarity, this volume compiles a series of texts in which Ancient History dialogs with other subject areas, namely: hermeneutics, literature and arts, political rhetoric, philosophy, religion and reception of Ancient History in modernity.

Abstract

By celebrating the 2400th anniversary of the founding of Plato's Academy, this book gathers ten contributions concerning the founder of the Academy, his school and work, as well as the influence Plato exerted on later authors (from antiquity to the present), and the reception of his legacy throughout history.The themes explored in the five initial chapters focus on the analysis of various topics treated in individual Pla -tonic dialogues. To begin, the Phaedrusis considered for its significance regarding the philosophical conception of a “supra-heavenly place”. The next two chapters reflect upon Platonic paideia, first on the pedagogical princi-ples of The Statesman, and next on the analysis of sports activities in The Republic and inThe Laws. The dramatic and philosophical implications arising out of the multicultural origins of the characters in The Laws are brought into perspective alongside an insight drawn from the banquet, considered a model on which a philosophic com-munity can be constituted. The five remaining chapters have a general focus on Plato’s presence in later authors (from Neoplatonism to contemporary literature), as well the influence of the Academy.
