The study presents new results of the ethnographic research conducted in the environment of Slovak minorities settled in the so-called Dolna zem ('Lower Land'), a geographical region covering the parts of Hungary, Romania, Serbia and Croatia. The goal of the research was to map various phenomena of traditional culture, the characteristic component of which is the local cuisine. The study presents a picture of culinary culture in the 'Lower Land' as a part of the complex of socio-cultural life of Slovak communities in which cooking represents a form of social activity, maintained and determined by the local culture. In her research, the authoress attempts to find correlations between characteristic signs - symbols of alimentation and their connection to material and spiritual contexts of local cultures - in order to reveal the 'language of alimentation' used by the Slovaks in the 'Lower Land'.
