While foodways and the role food culture plays in Singaporean life have attracted significant and interesting scholarship, the study of Singapore food writing is an emergent field. This investigaton focuses on the contemporary food memoir in Singapore, a highly visible and growing subgenre of Singaporean food writing, profiling recent book-length Singaporean food memoirs. It will compare examples by expatriate Singaporeans with locally produced texts, identify common concerns and tropes, and suggest the cultural role these texts play in Singapore today.
