Palatable pedagogies require us to think with food and about our becoming with food. Thinking with food provokes us to look closely at transformations of bodies-food-waste through harvesting, cooking, eating and composting practices. Thinking about our becoming with food calls attention to trans-corporealities (Alaimo, 2010); the entanglements of bodies and processes of embodying other bodies. Palatable pedagogies do not offer a recipe for how to ethically consume food in these neoliberal capitalist times of the Anthropocene, rather they look closely at human-food encounters and stay with the indigestion from the ethical tensions of our relations with other species as foods.
