In this talk I will move through a series of examples, discussing the various roles that ingredients from within London's food system play within the city's social formations. From chilli peppers, through jellied eels, horse meat and fried chicken, I will foreground the social significance of gut feelings elicited by the city's foods, and the significance of the spaces in which they are served.
