Example text

By the same token, the closeness of friendship or the distance of dislike are expressed by the relative ease of food sharing in societies based on reciprocity, as the African San woman Nisa evocatively described to her biographer, Marjorie Shostak (1983 [1981]:88–89). Along with this, use of common access to food for feel-good intimacy can sometimes come suspicion that others are not sharing what they have (for an example from Sumatra, see Fessler 2005:53). This too is not merely a concern about equal access to nutrition; it also represents a sneaking suspicion that one’s own society is not as intimate as it should be.

Even when we want to achieve closeness through commensality, eating the same things together can be a challenge. The proffered local cuisine does not always meet one’s minimal criteria of delicious, palatable, or even “food,” causing one to reject or be unenthusiastic about the menu. Therefore, rejecting food can appear as a false sign of social rejection. In the same manner, deciding to accept proffered food can be a false sign of social acceptance, closeness, or equivalence: one may simply be hungry.
