"Gastrodiplomacy theory is essentially affiliated with Public Diplomacy, Cultural diplomacy, or Nation branding. Gastrodiplomacy is defined as the use of cuisine as an instrument to create cross-cultural understanding to improve interactions and cooperation between international and local agents and actors. With that also comes the aim to create a better image for the nation upon foreign publics." (Ido Rosenblum, 2020)
