How can we (not) eat pork? Meat constituting cultural identity in the meat ball case from Randers and New Nordic Cuisine

Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskning

With an offset in two cases, “The Meatball case from Denmark” and the New Nordic Cuisine, that both made newspaper headlines in January 2016, this presentation will discuss the ways in which food, and indeed pork, is used to constitute national and regional identity in current Danish culture and cultural politics. After outlining the various roles of pork in for instance gastronationalism (DeSaucey) and debates of sustainability, I wish to return to the more fundamental questions of food, terroir and identity, such as the relation between soil on the one hand and constituting an ‘I’ (or a ‘we’) on the other. Between symbolic gestures and materiality.
