This lecture suggests the need to rethink to what extent food shaped banal nationalism in 19th Century Europe and beyond. It also points out the danger of focusing on nation-states when turning food into heritage: even nomination of dishes to intangible heritage can fuel food wars.

Last but not least, populism can appropriate the language of food to develop frictions and polarize aggressive feelings. While politicians of various European countries do so, celebrated chefs speak the language of hybridity, integration, and sustainability.
