Contois’ book, subtitled “How Gender and Power Collide in Food Media and Culture,” is an examination of how the food world — from restaurant kitchens to television shows to the weight-loss industry — perpetuates some potentially destructive stereotypes, from the “dude food” epitomized by TV personality Guy Fieri to how dieting programs skew their advertising to appeal to men. The book is published by the University of North Carolina Press.
