North America's signature food

14 June 2016    Editorial    Food gastrodiplomacy north america

For instance #Japan is known for sushi. What is #NorthAmerica's signature food?

By promoting their culinary heritage both at home and abroad, countries across the world are looking to prove they have something to offer.

North America

Everyone thinks they know America's food culture: big, unhealthy, cheap, and fast. The US is using gastrodiplomacy to change this image. For instance by drawing attention to the unique qualities of the New Orleans Cajun cuisine, or focusing on what makes the American northwest unique. 

Curious about the other countries?
