Notes

Abstract: This thesis explores the relationship between food and scholarship in commercial spaces from the seventeenth through the nineteenth centuries. In England and France, middle-class scholars adopted the aristocratic values of novelty, conviviality, and delicacy, and adapted them to public spaces in the city. The people, their conversations, and their physical spaces illustrate the shift from aristocratic patronage to market culture. The seventeenth-century English coffeehouse, and the eighteenth-century French salon and restaurant, all fit this pattern to differing degrees. While exhibiting the above pattern, the eighteenth-century French restaurant transformed food-enabled scholarship into food scholarship. Though the importance of food scholarship has become marginalized in modern society, in the eighteenth century, people could actually be defined by what they ate.
