Abstract

The current culinary megatrend owes much to Internet socialization practices. Discussions online began very early (the boards of Chowhound, for example, have already been operating since 1997), which says a lot about how much the “great conversation” of online communities is linked to gastronomic discourse. This paper propose a semiotic assessment of such a connection.
