Abstract: The production, preparation, distribution and consumption of food holds a central position in the development of societies. Food is a primary necessity for human survival. Apart from its physiological importance, food is also a cultural phenomenon. As the French epicure Jean-Anthelme Brillant-Savarin claims, "Gastronomy governs the whole life of man." In this case, sustenance is more than the energy necessary for the body to survive. As a cultural object, food is a means through which humans communicate values, knowledge and beliefs.
