Eating myself

Exploring our society's obsession with food as a marker of our identity and why we still feel empty despite all the sumptuous cuisines. What we eat is supposed to indicate who we are — for example, eating organic means you're ethical; eating blowfish sashimi means you're adventurous; grating white truffle on your pasta means you're sophisticated. In fact, food has been so thoroughly colonised by commentary and narrative in our consumer-driven culture that what we eat is becoming less and less about nutrition or fuel for the body but more about consuming symbolism and meaning — like social status and identity. http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/360/eating-myself/3133662
