ESPINOSA, Agustín e CALDERON-PRADA, Alicia. Relations between national identity and peruvian gastronomic culture in a sample of young middle-class people from Lima. Liberabit [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.1, pp. 21-28. ISSN 1729-4827.
This study analyzes, from the Social Identity Theory perspective (Tajfel, 1984), relations among Peruvian national identity, collective self concept and Peruvian self-esteem with valuation of Peruvian gastronomic culture, in a sample of middle-class young people from Lima (n=116). Results suggest that a better valuation of Peruvian cuisine is associated positively with a major identification to Perú. Besides, it is also related with a more positive self-concept and with higher levels of national self-esteem.
