The Intersection of Culture & Food
At PACO we say that there’s nothing more cross-cultural than food.
That’s not just a reflection of reality; in many ways food is the vanguard of cultural sharing. And that makes food a great lens through which to look at how our cultural mainstream is constantly being reshaped by evolving consumer perceptions and preferences.
What you’ll find:
- How different generations define and experience culture, and what it means for how they explore cuisine
- How food acts as a gateway to diverse experiences and what larger cultural trends reflect this process
- How some “ethnic” dishes become “all-American”
- Implications for menus – and for messaging
Understanding these phenomena will help you navigate the eddies and currents of our constantly shifting cultural mainstream.
