Author notes

Bertram M. Gordon is professor of history at Mills College in Oakland, California, where he regularly teaches a course in “cuisine history,” and is author of chapters on eating “as God in France” in Voyage, Reisen und Essen (2002); the history of Gourmet Magazine’s perceptions of French food in Gastronomie et identité culturelle française (2007); and the history of chocolate in France in Chocolate: History, Culture, and Heritage (2009). Erica J. Peters is director of the Culinary Historians of Northern California and author of Appetites and Aspirations in Vietnam: Food and Drink in the Long Nineteenth Century (2012) and San Francisco: A Food Biography (2013).

The editors appreciate the invaluable assistance of Rachel Fuchs, Kent Wright, Amy Long, Richard Hopkins, and the anonymous readers who reviewed the many submissions, and they thank the new editors, Kathryn A. Edwards and Carol E. Harrison, for managing the transition so smoothly.
