Food culture plays an important role in Buddhism, which relates  to the problem of identity of Buddhism. The problems of food and desire comprise a cosmology in Buddhism; that is, they not only relate to the ultimate attitude of a Buddhist but also constitute a part of the discipline system. So how can we follow how food means this in Buddhism? 

<Food in Buddhism> examines a massive amount of material from  ancient Indian literatures to modern scholarly works as well as Buddhist literatures such as the Pali Canon in order to explicate a  fundamental Buddhist understanding of food and the Buddhist  attitude toward it and how this has changed over the course of time.
