Food in Literature

In the official dictionary of Indonesian language, the word ‘eat’ as a verb has 15 different explanations; not to mention its daily use in other contexts. Is the importance of ‘eat’ and ‘food’ is reflected culturally in texts? Not only in the format of practical instructions as recipes, but also in historical or literature works. While we celebrate the richness of our culinary culture, we should also remember to honor the texts that help preserve the food that we came to know and love.
