BEYOND BELIEFS ABOUT FOOD AND THE FLAVORS OF NATURE
This is a preliminary discussion that seeks to highlight the meanings of flavors and foods to create relationships between mankind and nature, understanding that cultural reasons attribute meanings to the flavors of foods. Anthropological references are the theoretical basis for a discussion of the possibilities of the existence of an alimentary identity. Furthermore, food is already one aspect of identity. In addition we discuss what conditions the use of nature and the rejection of the consumption of certain products from nature as food. Our concern is to present the characteristics of a geography of food and flavors. The research included the work of various authors from the fields of Geography, History, Anthropology and Social Sciences.
