Foodways, generally speaking, is the study of what, how, and why we eat with emphasis on food events as much as the food itself. The study of foodways is important to cultural studies, and encompasses issues of race, class, gender, economy, environment, geography, and history, among others.

For an overview of foodways topics, reference The New Encyclopedia of Southern Cutlure, Foodways, Volume 7. (UNC Press: 2007)
