Culinary Anthropology

Hey! I'm taking a Cultural Anthropology class and need to write a research paper. I LOVE FOOD, so I thought it only natural to write something in a culinary anthropology vein. Perhaps in regards to food as a symbol of love, affection, gift giving, etc. Or how different cultures view certain foods possessing powers (to heal, to vitalize, etc). Or maybe how some foods are honored in certain cultures and taboo in others...
If anyone out there is a culinary anthropologist, or has any words of wisdom, possible resources, or any ideas on the subject, I would love to hear from you. Thank you!
