Janet Flammang is a writer, professor and chair of political science at California’s Santa Clara University, and the author of The Taste for Civilization: Food, Politics and Civil Society, (Champaign, IL: University of Illinois Press, 2009.)

The book explores the idea that table activities – the mealtime rituals of food preparation, serving and dining – lay the foundation for a proper education on the value of civility, the importance of the common good, and what it means to be a citizen.
