Eating Culture and Culinary Practice


This presentation considers the attempts that Taiwanese women make to recreate “authentic” Taiwanese food while living in Toronto. High prices of cultural foods affects women’s provisioning; however, changes to the supermarket landscape in Toronto area, specifically, an increased availability of Taiwanese and Chinese foods outside of Chinatown, are seen as positive developments  in the region over the past six years.
