Food Related Journals

These are journals rather than databases. Whenever you have used a database to find articles, the articles that you found always came from a journal. You might not have really noticed the journal layer. In any case, use these as if they were a database to find articles. 

You may need to carry out relatively complex searches using parentheses, like this. The parentheses group similar terms into a list linked by OR, so you will retrieve one or more of each term:

(italy OR italian) AND (food OR cuisine OR eating OR kitchen OR cucina OR restaurant)
