How have food-related products or practices traveled with people? How have these practices sustained them until they reached their destination? How have these products become part of their new environment (naturally or by will)? How, in turn, have new products and knowledge traveled back transforming landscapes and food practices that are now deeply ingrained in national imaginaries and how we understand traditional dishes or ingredients? This roundtable considers these questions as a starting point to think through together how these movements, unsurprisingly, happened at individual levels but also as consequences of systemic power changes, political interests, and the need for survival.
