The Bittersweet Taste of Home: a Baudrillardian Interpretation of Nostalgic Food Consumption in Acculturation
While eating food associated with home is seen as a positive coping mechanism for acculturating consumers, this paper underlines its dislocating effects. A Baudrillardian interpretation of immigrant consumer narratives shows how divergent interpretations of ‘home’ food produce both comfort and disappointment. Ultimately, consuming nostalgic food can be an ambivalent experience.
