Summary/Abstract: This book presents a collection of essays about food that I have published beginning in the 1990s. The first essays, which were published in the “Time for enjoyment” section of the magazine Vreme (Time), with the exception of an essay about French cheeses, which I revised according to a different conception about twenty years later. Also not in this collection is the text of an introduction to Apicius’s recipe book which I published in Latin in 1989 and translated for the collection of classic texts published in the Zagreb journal Latina&Graeca, because that was writing for a specific purpose. The collection also does not include my research on cabbage and sexuality, which appeared at the end of last year in Slovenian. I particularly regret that my book of recipes Poverty Cuisine, which I delevered for publication just before the war to the publisher “Književna zajednica Novi Sad,” was never released. Technical and other conditions were such that the manuscript has simply – at least for me – disappeared. On the other hand, this collection includes many essays that have never been published before, but which are inspired by the basic theme and my approach to it.
