Here's a new way for all of us who eat to mull over passions of the dinner table with the release of a delicious and unique game, The Art of Conversation: Food Edition. Following the success of their original title, The Art of Conversation, creators Louise Howland and Keith Lamb have adapted the recipe to dish up intriguing, entertaining and educational new angles and avenues to think, talk and learn about food, cooking and eating. It’s all about actively sharing conversations on all aspects of food and eating, e.g. ingredients (from abalone to zucchini), wild foods, sustainability, ethical eating, destinations, tastes, chefs, hilarious food quotes, favourite dishes from the classics to the cutting edge … in fact a smorgasbord for those who enjoy sharing recipes, hints and tips, remembering special meals, or planning new ones! Track food and menu changes, the rise and fall of overused ingredients, (truffle oil, anyone?), celebrity chefs, kitchen equipment from then to now, evocative fragrances and flavours that bring back times past. Even unadventurous eaters will be inspired! This delightful resource can be used in a variety of ways, serving up over 300 culinary entrees on topics like food destinations, cooking classes, slow food, fusion, indulgent food, leftovers and bizarre food ideas. It includes a comprehensive guidebook to culinary communications, complete with fascinating, funny and educational endnotes. From families and friends to professionals, use it seriously or simply for fun! TAOC helps put some of our more conflicted attitudes into perspective, and focus on what really matters about what goes onto our plates and into our mouths. It is also a great way to unlock curiosity and learn about food - what it is, where it comes from, how it’s prepared and whether its effects are beneficial or otherwise. Like all TAOC editions, it’s not a quiz – it’s never about who knows the most. Rather, it’s a communication tool that draws on your own experiences, thoughts and reactions to facilitate fascinating discussions. And perhaps best of all it brings friends and family genuinely closer in this age of instant messaging. Even wannabe foodies and reluctant eaters will love it, because let’s face it – we all eat! The essayist and wit Leigh Hunt (1778-1830) once said; “If you are ever at a loss to support a flagging conversation, introduce the subject of eating!” It’s a subject where everyone has an opinion – and plenty of experience!
