If you read German, a good resource is 

Eleonore Schmitt, Das Essen in der Bibel. Literaturethnologische Aspekte des  
Alltäglichen (Studien zur Kulturanthropologie 2; Münster/Hamburg: LIT Verlag,  

I have written a paper entitled 

"Momentaufnahmen” Of Israelite Religion: The Importance Of The  
Communal Meal In Narrative Texts In 1/2 Kings And Their Ritual  
Dimension" that was read for the SBL annual meeting in Denver in  
2001 and has been submitted for publication.

Well I guess that should give you something to read :-)

All the best
