Anthropologist shares expertise with international culinary
Sidney Mintz, professor emeritus of anthropology, has spent more than a
half-century studying the meaning of food. On one recent
Saturday, Mintz brought his expertise to the International
Association of Culinary Professionals, which was having its
first-ever conference in Baltimore.
As IACP's scholar in residence, Mintz addressed the
global diffusion of plants, animals and food ingredients
over time, and the heavy emotional load that food carries

people together but can also divide them when prohibitions
and taboos are part of a culture.
