dc.description.abstract The idea of authenticity is an important consideration when examining and preparing food specific to a culture, but also a concept that has many facets and cannot always be objectively defined. This thesis examines multiple elements of food culture in Mexico, including generational differences, Spanish influence on indigenous cuisine, the view of the culture by outsiders, and the social role of women in and out of the kitchen, and brings these aspects into a discussion of some contributing factors to authenticity.
