Reading: “First Bite: How We Learn to Eat” By Bee Wilson

Through this book we will focus on the social construction of taste. We will discuss how
taste preferences and the sensation of taste goes beyond our biological needs as they are
both shaped by culture, class, gender, etc.

Potluck prompt: food we love but few people in our immediate surrounding like to eat.
