As anyone who has watched Eurovision can attest, the music festival often becomes a spectacle of nationalisms. It is an international space onto which all participating nations proclaim a distinct and valuable musical and artistic contribution to the world stage.

If “eating is a means of performing identity” and if “the way southerners eat is a text,” as critics David Davis and Tara Powell assert in their introduction to Writing in the Kitchen: Essays on Southern Literature and Foodways, then how do we think, talk, and write about culinary “textual transactions?”
