From resource-scarce scenarios of space travel, to sensual lab-grown and replicated feasts, to innovative distribution schemes, food is presented in many ways in futurist and SF novels.  Focusing on food, we can ask the questions:  who gets to eat, who doesn't, and who makes the decisions.  Given our current food technology, are we heading towards food utopic or food dystopic systems?  In what ways are we stretching past frontiers of food science towards futurist visions?
