What is culinary nationalism? What form does it take, and how has it evolved in China, Taiwan, Japan and Korea? What we eat is not only shaped by geographical factors, the existence of natural resources in a specific location, and individual tastes, but also by political, socio-economic, religious, and other factors and values. At this event Professor Katarzyna Cwiertka and Associate Professor Michelle T. King will discuss forms and developments of culinary nationalism in East Asia.
