Corky White is a professor of anthropology at Boston University. She is really happy to be called a food anthropologist. She leads students to Boston's food secrets and hopes they don't see the course as a gut. In the past she wrote cookbooks and food travel guides and is glad she got tenure so she can put it all back on the resume. Her dream field work project allowed her two years of study of Japanese culinary tourism in Italy.
