Abstract
Food is an essential component in the making of identity, and is inextricably associated with cultural identity; it not only constructs and defines but retains the distinctness of the religious-cultural groups in a multi-cultural society. Food from production to consumption serves as a prominent constituent of identity maker. Ideological dominance often influences the dietary habits of the people of the multicultural society. Therefore, food serves as a dominant signifier of identity, and is deeply associated with the social, cultural and political aspects of society. There has been a massive influx of food industry in the twenty-first century and, therefore, it could be considered to be an age of “food explosion”. The emergence of food industry gives a new meaning to the food culture. With the emergence of numerous TV shows, cookery books, and ongoing food researches have redefined and reshaped the importance of food beyond mere means of survival. Until recently, food becomes a subject of growing academic interest. Robin Yasin Kassab, a British-Syrian novelist exploits food as a trope in his narrative fiction The Road from Damascus (2008).

Key words: There has been a massive influx of food industry in the twenty-first century and, therefore, it could be considered to be an age of “food explosion”.
