France (West) Germany, Italy, Netherlands Research Paper

… The first thing is that France is a rich, diverse and complex country. It has made important contributions to Western culture that today we might take for granted, especially in the area of individual liberty.

Evolution in Agriculture Essay

… Evolution in agriculture: Genetically modified organism (GMO)

The domestication of plants and animals unintentionally, and later intentionally, resulted in the promotion and sustenance of certain traits over other traits within domesticated species. It also affected the development of the living creatures of the world as a whole, given that certain species were favored over other species and new plants were imported and exported all over the world by humans, far faster than would have naturally occurred. Plants we take for granted as part of native cuisines such as the tomato in Southern Italy, the potato in Ireland, and corn in America are all imports: "every crop in North America other than the blueberry, Jerusalem artichoke, sunflower, and squash are borrowed from elsewhere" (Prakash 2001). Originally,…. [read more]

Food History Term Paper

… Like garlic, olives were found in Egyptian tombs from around the second millennium BCE. Olive cultivation thrived in the entire Mediterranean basin between 5000-1400 BCE, but reached a pinnacle in ancient Greece. Indeed, olives became the financial and culinary staple crop of ancient Greece and Crete, where trees have grown for five thousand years. The expansion of the Greek colonies enabled traders to introduce olives to Southern Italy, Northern Africa, and Southern France by the eighth century BCE.

Olives made more of an economic impact on the cultures of the Mediterranean region than garlic did. Because the olive tree leaches nutrients from the soil in which it grows, the land on which the trees are cultivated has a tendency to become arid and barren. This…. [read more]


Selling Australian Wine to Overseas Essay

… Because of this, it becomes difficult to project the financial gains of the company. This also reduces the capability of the company to work on appropriate measures to improve the condition.

More implicitly through its setting being placed in a trendy New York Restaurant, it makes the claim that sophisticated people enjoy it. Therefore, it would be sophisticated to choose it.

The commercial presents a demonstration of both people drinking the wine within a restaurant capacity, but also a close examination of the wine. A class is held in the air and swirled, showing the color quality to the…. [read more]

Rainfall Simulation Studies to Estimate Literature Review

… Incorporated residue is crop residue that is mulched into the soil such as corn stalks being buried to increase the organic matter content of the soil and which further operates like grade control structures thereby preventing rills from expanding. The use of no-till and reduce tillage practices result in less soil erosion and sediment than do convention methods of tillage or the use of plow tillage. However, it is not possibly to apply no-till and reduced tillage to all agricultural production initiatives.

Tillage marks are reported to be grouped to up-and-down till and contour till, which is generally effective in the reduction of soil erosion. There are however, many gullies and produced by contour as well as a great deal of sediment being created when…. [read more]


Wine Marketing Term Paper

… Wine Marketing

Marketing research and segmentation

The wine market is typically made of interconnected sub-segments with overlapping tendency. The wine market is different than other markets for agricultural products because this one is more vertically differentiated, meaning that in this market is easier to rank products according to objective criteria from the first to the last than it is for traditional agricultural products. For instance, the high quality - high price segment is very heterogeneous, showing increased product differentiation, whereas the low quality - low price segment is more homogenous, as it's not particularly focused on quality criteria (European Commission, 2002).

A complete market analysis should identify those markets that where on one hand individuals drink wine and on the other hand they are both…. [read more]

The wine industry in the U.S. began small with most of it accounted for by import until its expansion in California in the early 20th century (Geisler 2006). It was prohibited for a time and then revived in the early 70s and directed by aggressive demands for better quality wine products.

Because of the high levels of mid-day heat of many regions in the Mediterranean, it is often traditional to have a light, carbohydrate-based breakfast, to take a nap during the heat of the day, and to consume the main meal after the sun has set. There is an intense communal aspect and centrality to food in the culture. Especially in Greek and Italian cuisine, extended family and friends is the focus of the family.

A TIME OF TURMOIL AND DECAY

Post-War Italy (1946 -- mid 1950s)

Italy is a country in Southern Europe, consisting of the peninsula of Italy, Sicily, Sardinia and smaller islands (Infoplease, 2009). It was first proclaimed a kingdom by Victor Emmanuel II on March 17, 1861. Rome became its capital in July 1871 (Encyclopedia of the Nations, 2009). In the 20th century, the kingdom was ridden with severe domestic social and economic problems, especially in the south. Premier Giovanni Giolitti introduced political reforms, which raised the kingdom's status as a Western power. The reforms, however, did not solve basic problems, like poverty and illiteracy. It was initially an ally of the Central Powers, consisting of the German, Austrian-Hungarian, and Ottoman Empires and the…. [read more]


Food Essay

… Whereas many American customers find the service too slow and want to complain, other people understand that part of the Ethiopian culture is to be relaxed and at ease. This corresponds to the method of eating Ethiopian food, which is with the hands and done slowly. American food is sometimes eaten fast, in the car or at the desk.

One of my classmates wrote about an experience at a Japanese izikaya in Toronto. This restaurant might be one I am familiar with, which is called Guu. This restaurant also has the servers enthusiastic and shouting "hello!" And "goodbye!" To all the customers. Japanese culture is engaging, and the restaurants are busy and lively like this one. Therefore the ambiance of this restaurant reflects the culture.…. [read more]

Food Nation (summary) - Schlosser for Author Schlosser

Food Revolution (summary) - Robbins for Author Robbins

Remarks

Abstract chose these three books because they are among the most respected and most often referenced titles about food and its interrelationship with our culture in libraries today. The problems facing America in terms of poor nutrition, widespread obesity, inhumane treatment of animals, and the growing corporate influence on what Americans eat and how our lives are affected cry out for examination at the university level.

Product Launch Essay

… "A government official launched a 'Hands off Nutella' committee, quickly supported by the governor of Nutella's home base in Piedmont. The Cabinet minister for EU affairs warned against the risk of nutritionist fundamentalism" (Rizzo 2010). The increased interest and concern over unhealthy foods is likely to spawn a newly-activated desire to find organic alternatives.

Socio-economic and/or cultural, political and competitive environments

The greatest challenge will be resistance to a product that is a rival to a beloved European staple. In the UK, however, there has been a growing acceptance of food marketed from a 'health' standpoint in recent years, such as Jamie Oliver's recent campaign for Selfridge's supermarkets to encourage people to eat more healthfully and Marks and Spencer's calorie-controlled lines of packaged foods. The…. [read more]


Canadian Red Wine Business Plan for Los Angeles California Business Plan

… Canadian Red Wine

This is a preliminary plan for the Tropika company to develop a unit that will import Canadian red wine into the Los Angeles market and establish that product as a viable item for the low to medium priced wine consumer. Canadian wine has a long history, but it is not well-known in the U.S. market. In contrast, American wines, especially from California, are very well-known in the Canadian market and have a good share of the Canadian wine market. California wineries have sought to keep out other wines from the market for some time, but that has less power in a time of free trade and globalization. The consumer does not know Canadian wine and must be educated to its value. The…. [read more]


Italian Watersheds All Rivers Run Essay

… This leads to water that is very low in oxygen and very high levels of phosphorous and Italian environmental groups call the lake "chronically sick" (Belfast Telegraph, 2007)

Lakes are always fragile in terms of long-term maintenance of watershed health. With less free-flowing water than rivers or stream and a much smaller volume (and so a more delicate biochemical balance) than oceans, lakes are always shifting back and forth across a narrow tolerance for indigenous life forms. When this already delicate balance is affected in dramatically negative ways by agricultural and industrial run-off as well as human's ever increasing demand for freshwater (a demand pushed by increasing human population and exacerbated by climate change) the future health of lakes seems like a fool's dream.

PBS Programs: Summary and Analysis Reaction Paper

… Julia Child: The French Chef

Julia Child's The French Chef is one of the oldest food television programs every produced. Rather than presenting French cuisine as something intimidating and beyond the reach of the average American cook, Child rendered it fun and accessible. She showed that it was possible for ordinary Americans to understand and cook the French way by breaking down even very complicated French dishes into relatively easy steps.

However, even though Julia Child was very democratic in her approach to cooking, it is also worthy of note that she never 'dumbed down' French cuisine. Even when making an omelet or something very simple she was very rigorous in demanding that her viewers used the best, authentically French way to do so. Julia…. [read more]


Culture Cuisine in Australia Thesis

… However, cultural capital theory is transmitted in symbolic form through education, and media. The underlying assumption of cultural capital theory is that certain people have developed interest in some food because of their taste, and knowledge such as education. (Shenoy, 2005).

Bannerman (2011) supports this argument by pointing out that cuisine and class have been established in Australia. The author follows the Goody (1982) model of differentiated cuisines that emerges through differentiated societies. With reference to model of differentiated cuisines, it is only the upper class in the Australian society who posses resources and disposition to develop high class-cuisines. The whole system is found in cuisine culture. In Australia, stratified cuisines were developed by "the exclusive prerogative of small, educated elite" (Bannerman 2011, P 56).…. [read more]


Blueberries a Brief Synopsis Research Paper

… Blueberries are known for having very thin fibrous roots devoid of root hairs with the finest ones being no more than twenty µm in their diameter (Valehzuela 2009). Highbush blueberry plants have endotrophic mvcorhizza, which assist the roots in absorbing water and nutrients, while lowbush blueberry plants have rhizomes instead of roots, allowing them to grow more in the area they cover, rather than height (Valehzuela 2009). Highbush varieties can have root systems that can 2 meters in diameter but they rarely go farther than 1 meter deep (Valehzuela 2009).

Health of Farmworkers Thesis

… Health of Farm Workers

Farm workers who are migrant and seasonal are an important and integral part of the American agricultural enterprise and industry. According to recent figures there are more than three million farm workers who earn their livelihood through migrant or seasonal farm labor. (Rosenbaum and Shin, 2005) However, the general situation and conditions of these workers and the many associated variables indicate that these hired workers are subject to often severe health challenges. These challenges are related not only to the nature of their work but to other factors and variables as well, such as poverty and working arrangements that can have a significant impact on their health and accessibility to health coverage and care.
