Food Safety Management: A Practical Guide for the Food Industry-with an Honorable Mention for Single Volume Reference/Science in the 2015 PROSE Awards from the Association of American Publishers-is the first book to present an integrated, practical approach to the management of food safety throughout the production chain. While many books address specific aspects of food safety, no other book guides you through the various risks associated with each sector of the production process or alerts you to the measures needed to mitigate those risks.
Using practical examples of incidents and their root causes, this book highlights pitfalls in food safety management and provides key insight into the means of avoiding them. Each section addresses its subject in terms of relevance and application to food safety and, where applicable, spoilage. It covers all types of risks (e.g., microbial, chemical, physical) associated with each step of the food chain. The book is a reference for food safety managers in different sectors, from primary producers to processing, transport, retail and distribution, as well as the food services sector.

That is when they began to grow food, instead of searching for it and handing it down. Then came the knowledge and understanding of the seasons, which would appear periodically, as a natural part of life and nature. So after spring, summer and autumn, came the harsh winter, when they might have found them snowbound, depending on the area in which they lived. And so the irresponsible and elders of the tribe, decided that there should be some method in which the food collected during the spring and summer could be preserved for use in the winter. And so down the ages, many processes, including using salt to preserve food came into existence. Apart from making jams, jellies, and chutneys, preserving fruit and vegetables, fresh from the garden in salt, or in brine or in vinegars, syrups and oil became a tradition of everyday life. Up to the 19th century, a housewife - who was only interested in caring about her family and household, instead of getting sidetracked with careers and trying to juggle both of them at the same time - could concentrate on preserving the harvest. So, East or West, here are some traditional ways and means in which you can preserve food for winter use."
When novels, plays, and poems refer to food they are often doing much more than we might think. Recent critical thinking suggests that depictions of food in literary works can help to explain the complex relationship between the body, subjectivity and social structures. A History of Food in Literature provides a clear and comprehensive overview of significant episodes of food and its consumption in major canonical literary works from the medieval period to the twenty-first century. This volume contextualises these works with reference to pertinent historical and cultural materials such as cookery books, diaries, and guides to good health, in order to engage with the critical debate on food and literature and how ideas of food have developed over the centuries. Organised chronologically and examining certain key writers from every period, including Chaucer, Shakespeare, Austen and Dickens, this book's enlightening critical analysis makes it relevant for anyone interested in the study of food and literature.
