In My Feast, Peter explores the spirit and rich culture of Sri Lanka, the Philippines, the Cook Islands, Indonesia, and Vanuatu and shares the secrets of their unique cuisines. Broken into seven chapters and categorized by type of food rather than geography, this book is a dynamic exploration of the island nations. Sample delicious barbecued pork belly skewers, Jaffna-style crab curry, twice-cooked spiced duck, and the spicy, bold flavors of deviled tuna, and top it all off with a Sri Lankan banana split. Stunning location photography, enticing food shots, and recipes bursting with flavor make My Feast a book for the senses.
Based on an extensive ethnographic study of television and audiences in class-divided Philippines, this is the first book to take a bottom-up approach in considering how people respond to images and narratives of suffering and poverty on television. Arguing for an anthropological ethics of media, this book challenges existing work in media studies and sociology that focuses solely on textual analysis and philosophical approaches to the question of representing vulnerable others. Current questions in media ethics, such as whether to portray sufferers as humane and empowered individuals or show them 'at their worst' have so far used textual and visual analyses to convey the researcher's own moral position on the matter. In contrast, this book, inspired by the anthropology of moralities, accounts for the different interpretations and moral positions of audiences, who are positioned in various degrees of social and moral proximity to those they see and hear on television.
