How do everyday food practices reproduce and negotiate social inequalities? And how do these inequalities relate to the unequal distribution of biophysical resources and risks? From industrially produced chicken meat to the consumption of imported foods, everyday food practices in Bolivia and elsewhere are embedded in a historically developed context of social inequalities. The author argues that judgments of taste reproduce and negotiate material and symbolic inequalities in place since colonial times.
