We're going to talk about food. Growing it, processing it, making it, eating it, tools and TV shows and cultural trends. What can you do with it in fiction?

Oh, I wasn't at the computer and so didn't get to plug (again) the BEST study of this topic on our planet (minus TV): "Cooking and Empire" by Rachel Laudan. 20,000 BCE to 2010 CE, all in one book, covers the whole world.

I have absolutely no connection to this book or author, I just love it so. I recommend it to all authors or anybody who likes non-fiction with footnotes and bibliographies.

Will look forward to reading the summary.

(And you're welcome, Juliette -- this is my favorite fancast)

It was fabulous to talk to Fábio Fernandes, who joined us all the way from Saõ Paulo, Brazil, by the magic of modern technology! He kindly taught us how to pronounce the name of his city, so definitely check out the video for that, if you've been curious. Fábio is very active in science fiction.

Subconscious Worldbuilding - a Dive into Worldbuilding hangout summary

Food is a huge topic. There's growing, processing, making, eating, transporting foods. There's TV culture surrounding food; there are eating disorders, and relationships with food. There are meals, and how they are defined. There's also storing and preserving food, and protecting it from vermin.

What happens when you don't think you are worldbuilding? What kind of world structures creep in when we're not looking at them? How do our internal schemata influence our writing?

You might not feel like you're worldbuilding, but it's still going on under the surface of any story. What are the invisible aspects of worldbuilding? How can we make them stronger?
