Xavier Medina and José A. Vázquez-Medina) “This volume offers newperspective on the mobility of people and things in our world today, viewingsuch movements through the lens of a mundane yet ubiquitous phenomenon—the foodparcel. Through rich ethnography, contributors not only reveal how “carepackages” preserve connections with people and places but also how they areused in the creation of new senses of belonging. At the same time, they remindus how fraught and tenuous migration and settling into new places and socialrelations can be. A must read for anyone interested in mobilities, in food, andespecially in the intersection of the two.” (Harry G. West, Professor ofAnthropology, University of Exeter, UK)

“This brilliantlyinnovative book explores the food-migration nexus and its multiple expressionsboth theoretically and empirically. Present in most transnational migrationcorridors and spaces worldwide, 'travelling food' has a diversity of meaningsranging from material exchange and consumption to kinship reinforcement, care,belonging and nostalgia. The book contains original ethnographic case studiesbased on the grounded approach to the anthropology of everyday experience, andshould be essential reading for students, researchers and teachers interestedin the under-appreciated role of food in transnational life.” (RussellKing, Professor of Geography, University of Sussex, UK)
