Burek and Social Values

The crucial function of food is to preserve life; however, food often has symbolic meaning in the society and, as such, may suggest much about culture, tradition and eating habits of a certain society. Day-to-day availability and consumption of food seems natural for human beings. Because of that, we rarely think about the meanings of food within different societies. The article tries to place burek into social context and to attribute burek certain meanings which were shaped in the society. The author tries to compare meanings of burek in two different, yet also similar cultures—Bosnian and Slovenian. Scientific articles on this topic have already been presented to Slovenian public, but none of them presented the viewpoints of Bosnian immigrants to Slovenia.
