Canada: A Taste of Home/Les saveurs de chez soi

Canada: A Taste of Home/Les saveurs de chez soi

By Oriana Palusci Ylenia De Luca

Canada: A Taste of Home/ Les saveurs de chez soi is a collection of papers, written either in French or in English, that investigate the different cuisines of immigrants in a literary, linguistic and cultural perspective. Far from home, food expresses a sense of nostalgia, belonging and identity, as the authors suggest in dealing with the many implications and attitudes to food. On a literary and cultural table sumptuously prepared with recipes dearly carried from native homes near and far, full of strange ingredients, tastes, smells, colours, cultural practices, habits, plurilinguistic Canada celebrates the triumph of a migrant country, whose life is rooted in the rich soil of far off cooking traditions and memories. Indeed, Canada is a culinary laboratory in which gastronomies showcase and confirm the ethnic diversity of its multicultural peoples.
