How has washoku (traditional Japanese cuisine) become such a popular part of the global scene? What does its global popularity mean for washoku in Japan? Dr. Bestor will examine several dimensions of the ways in which washoku has been promoted at the elite level, via UNESCO recognition in 2013 as an aspect of Global Intangible Cultural Heritage, as well as aspects of washoku as part of daily life.
