Food Culture[edit]

Food culture refers to the matrix of processes which relate to food within a given culture, including, but not limited to, its cultivation, preparation, presentation, consumption and the socialization which occurs around agricultural and culinary traditions. The concept of food embodying a culture of its own is based on the idea that when food becomes a conscious act, instead of a merely biological one, it takes shape as an element of human identity.
