Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

Students will look at cooking or gastronomy in France throughout the ages using different media: art, painting, photography, films and will explore historical events that shaped the nation and its inhabitants. We will see how French cooking has influenced international cooking and has integrated other cultures in its approach. We will look at how food from the Americas has transformed the European and French ways of cooking. What does modern French cooking consist of? Cooking is linked intrinsically to history: migration, immigration and colonisation have all played a part in shaping the French cooking psyche and its national and regional identities. We will travel through time and places: from 17th C Versailles to 21st C fusion cuisine, from Paris to the Pacific Ocean, from Normandy to the French West Indies and many more places.

Paper Structure

As staffing has changed for 2022, the paper will focus mostly on French gastronomy. We will see how the Colombian exchange changed how people cooked and ate in the Old World.
Gastronomy has played a large part in the history and culture of the French-speaking world and is seen as a major influence on the international scene. From Versailles to Master Chef, we look at how French cooking has evolved from the 17th Century to what it represents nowadays. We examine how cultural interactions have shaped traditional and modern French society with examples from history, literature, film and art.
