Instead of abandoning her own culinary commitments, she instead discovers that what others might see as a disadvantage to her research becomes something of an advantage. Her dietary restriction becomes a catalyst that motivates her Argentinean informants to explain the importance of meat in their lives, precisely because she cannot partake herself. Johnston’s chapter ends this section by talking about her long-term research with the Blackfeet, a Native American group in northern Montana. She demonstrates that the presence of the anthropologist is never neutral and that moreover this position affects not only our relationships with people but also what is put on our dinner plates.

I do not really like it. Locals call it “Papua New Guinea pizza,” but this actually makes matters worse for me because pandanus sauce tastes nothing like tomato sauce. In fact, to me it tastes like nothing at all. It does exude a mild, greasy smell, which does not add to its appeal for me. As is the case for sago grubs, white people are famous in Papua New Guinea for typically not liking red pandanus. Indeed, not all Asabano like it either—so differing personal preferences of foods is another one of those pesky qualifiers to the social facts of commensality.

I found this reasoning strangely comforting. Think of steak and eggs, after all—not merely an acceptable combination but one favored by cowboys and other Real Men. By eating these I could tell myself I was reaching a macho ideal—adventurous, independent, and also savoring home-style cooking.
