CONTEMPORARY BRITISH GASTRONOMY - AN EXAMPLE OF GLOBALIZATION PUBLISHEDElena Nistor, Elena Loredana Pohrib, Mala-Maria Stavrescu-Bedivan, Eugen Claudiu Dumitrescu
The present paper aims to introduce an attempt of interdisciplinary approach to some significant issues of contemporary gastronomic culture in Britain. The Indian culinary art represents a combination between different types of cooking. The base for most Indian dishes is condiments, with the most powerful impact upon British cuisine, a typical example being ‘chicken tikka masala’, a sort of Indian-influenced food existing only in England. Through some concrete examples, the paper is trying to demonstrate that the contemporary period has surpassed radical division and separatist attitudes, evolving to moderate and moderating philosophy and practice of globalization.
