Abstract

With increasing migration, there is a need to explore how migrants construct identity. This study analyses how two ethnic communities, in the U.K construct identity, in relation to food consumption practices. Findings suggest that food is an acculturative and reacculturative agent, to adapt to social situations, which reflects their identity.
