Alicia Rico (World Languages and Cultures) recently published an article, “Apuntes gastronómico-sociales de El Chef ha muerto," in La nueva literatura hispánica (2019). In this article, she analyzes how the author, Yanet Acosta, uses gastronomy to make a critical comment regarding contemporary Spanish society and the gastronomic industry. With a funny plot, Acosta employs the social critique associated with detective novels to expose the division of society and the elitism constructed around food.
