Food has many functions and meanings. It is, indeed, necessary for our nourishment but since human beings are related to one another, food is a symbolic form of communication, too. It can also play other roles. It can be a ritual, it can transmit values, norms of conduct and beliefs, it can trigger nostalgic childhood memories or, by recreating lost worlds, have a healing effect.
