    1. Oh so very true! It’s easy to work into the setting.

  1. Absolutely agree. Nothing more basic to who a character is than the food he eats, how he prepares it or doesn’t, his whole attitude toward the consumption of it. Great to read your post on this topic.

    1. Thank you so much.
      And thanks for stopping in.

  2. I like how you’ve tied in food as a part of the setting.
    We spend a lot of time in company over food and the way we eat says much about us.

    1. Yes it does! There’s also the tools people use to eat with- such as silverware, chopsticks, fingers, etc. It can help distinguish one place from another. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Food is an interesting part of the setting…but aren’t most memories tied to food and places we sat with family and friends? I think it really does need to be considered a part of the setting in a story.

    1. For those characters fortunate enough to have such experiences, yes indeed. That’s one more great way to bring a setting to life.

  4. Excellent, succinct post. Everything consumes something to stay alive. 🙂

    1. Ah yes, so true!
