Abstract

This chapter focuses on gastro-nationalism, specifically in relation to food porn. In general, by food porn we mean the overabundance of discourses around food, which has spread in a reflective way among the different levels and scopes of cultural production, as well as the practice of photographing food and sharing the image on social media. Among the other effects, this also reflects on the overflow of culinary formats shown on television. The idea took shape when the image of food, including its symbolic value and the aesthetics of the dish, started to acquire a greater value than its creators and the techniques of its preparation (Stagi in Food Porn. L’ossessione per il cibo in tv e sui social media. Egea, Milan, 2016).
