    a gastronomy of the eye

    Hi,

    Could anyone help me with the meaning of " a gastronmy of the eye" in the following sentence:

    Thus in presenting to their readers a 'gastronomy of the eye' largely made up of 'the odd, the exotic and the trival' to use Carey's (1986: 163) terms, these newspapers were expeditiously redefining what could and should qualify as news for 'ordinary people' in the context of their daily lives.

    Thanks!

    Gastronomy is the art or science of good eating. If we add "eye" to that, we get something that means, pleasing to the eye.
