The Flag as a Tablecloth: Food Practices of the New Spanish Immigrant Community in Edinburgh
Investigating the ways in which the new Spanish immigrants perform their daily life practices within their host society. Using Sociology of Food to frame my research approach, exploring the food consumption practices performed by the recent Spanish migrants in Edinburgh, and analysing some spaces where such practices are performed. This will serve to identify and understand the ways in which national and class identities are performed and maintained among a highly skilled immigrant population mainly employed in the lower paid customer care industries.

I recently started a blog where I write recipes used by Edinburgh based immigrants to feel closer to their homelands, including myself.
