Whose Food Is It, Anyway?
Recently, a number of chefs and food writers have debated and/or issued proclamations on the knotty question of: “Is it fair for chefs to cook other cultures’ food?” That issue has also spilled over into the cookbook world, as writers ask, “Is it fair to write cookbooks about other cultures’ food?” This panel will address such issues as ethnicity, authenticity, and assimilation as it seeks to answer whether any group can “own” a cuisine. The more multicultural we all become, the more important this topic is bound to be.
