The Many Flavors of Worldbuilding: Food in SFF

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Food can tell you a lot about the culture behind it: how when it was made, how it's ritualized, how ingredients can dictate one's place in society. It can tell you a lot about the foreign culture imbibing it, too—specifically, their attitudes toward anything foreign. Join our panel of authors as they discuss how they build worlds (or imply them) using food in their fiction.
