Taking as a challenge the proverb that there is no disputing about taste, ‘De gustibus non est disputandum’, On Taste brings together a variety of contributors to examine notions of gustatory taste in relation to performance and performativity. Ranging across historical cookbooks, contemporary performance art, home cooking and restaurant dining as well as across varied cultures from throughout the world, the articles in this issue upend relationships of the aesthetics of sense and sensibility, as a means of understanding varying practices through embodied cognition, asking questions about what epistemologies of understanding might gain from a serious contemplation of taste as and in performance.
