For South Asians, food regularly plays a role in how issues of race, class, gender, ethnicity, and national identity are imagined as well as how motions of belonging are affirmed or resisted. Culinary Fictions provides food for thought as it considers the metaphors literature, film, and TV shows use to describe Indians abroad. When an immigrant mother in Jhumpa Lahiri's The Namesake combines Rice Krispies, Planters peanuts, onions, salt, lemon juice, and green chili peppers to create a dish similar to one found on Calcutta sidewalks, it evokes not only the character's Americanization, but also her nostalgia for India. Food, Anita Mannur writes, is a central part of the cultural imagination of diasporic populations. Culinary Fictions maps how it figures in various expressive forms, and illustrates how national identities are consolidated in culinary terms. Printed Pages: 269.
