Description

From the Spanish home kitchen to the trendiest restaurant, from the daily markets to the olive groves and vineyards, we will analyze how Spaniards and Catalans use food to create two competing identities, one regional, the other national. Culture and cultural identity are often identified as the "ordinary" everyday life elements we perform. Food is one of these "taken for granted" ordinary cultural identifiers.

However, food is more than a means of survival. It permeates many aspects of our lives, from the most intimate to the most professional. Food exemplifies how we view ourselves and others, and is the center of political and social issues.

This global study examines how food is used to construct cultural identity in Spain and its regions.
