Transcript of Food Borders

Food Borders "Food is itself, therefore, a marker of mobility because
it travels from the outside to the inside." (169) Food marks differences:
nationalities The attitude that people have towards certain foods echoes their
feelings towards certain cultures; for example, the popularity of
Indian food in Britain corresponds with the increasing
multiculturality of Britain. "A food item and a place (region, state, geographical area)
thus become synonymous with each other: Kerala and fish,
Bengal and milk sweets, Tamil Nadu and rasam, England and
fish and chips, Japan and sushi, Italy and pasta, Maharastra and
bhakri." (169) Food and travel go together; part of experiencing another culture
is experiencing their cuisine, and travel is obviously a form of mobility.
Some vacations are even taken for the express purpose of partaking in
the food of different locations. "This is a more specialized form of food mobilities:
travelling to eat." (170) A Paris cafe Different food, food that is consumed at a location
new to the person or a location that is not native to
the food, gives the food either a novelty or comfort
feeling that links food to mobility; food is tied to
location yet available everywhere. "In other words, food mobilities signify the culture of travel,
or cultural mobilities." (171)
