Using critical food studies as a case study, I will address the impasse distancing critical inquiry from pleasure. I propose that pleasure cultivates experience that theory cannot. Working with experimental methodology I will consider the tensions that emerge with the urge to straddle the academic world of theoretical and conceptual work and the lived world of embodied experience.
