Reports an analysis of class preferences for certain foodstuffs in the UK. Multivariate analysis of the UK Family Expenditure Survey is used to show that distinct factors operate in choice of food purchase dependent on a person′s social class. Relying on Bourdieu′s Distinction thesis as the theoretical basis, a scale of tastes for certain foods is arrived at using discriminant analysis. This builds on work already reported in the BFJ.
