Faire cohabiter des mondes culinaires : enjeux communicationnels des portraits de cuisiniers du Refugee Food Festival

Abstract : Refugee Food Festival is a culinary event created in 2016. Endorsed by French chefs, it seeks to promote refugee cooks and encourage their professional integration. Available on their website, a section “Les Chefs” displays a threefold goal: feature the participants’ singular personalities, characterize their culinary practices and open up a space of encounter between French gastronomy and “culinary exoticism” (Régnier, 2004). The changes in identity materialized by the visual portrait and narration of the participants offer a unique angle for observing the semio-discursive construction process of a “common culinary space” stretched between “domestication” and “foreignization” (Stano et Boutaud, 2015). The study highlights that, among other processes, the uniqueness of the culinary practice and the figure of the mother legitimize the professional (re) conversion of refugees into «chefs». Also, merging gastronomies — as for the dishes prepared and the desirable places where they are elaborated — is a central ambition that organizes their de-conflictualized convergence.
