Does food define a culture, and a culture the food?

Culture is a learned way of life shared by a group of people, which includes language, food, celebrations, behaviors and interactions artistic expression, the arts, sport These shared patterns identify the members of a culture group while also distinguishing those of another group.
From observation and various studies food has been known to be part of one’s culture however is it a very significant factor that promotes culture? Or is it insignificant?
Many may argue that food does play a very significant role in culture and it does define their culture and don’t intend to change their eating habit, taste, style of cooking in order to socialize.  Rather many would stick to their own ethnicity to avoid embarrassing moment of having to say “I don’t like that” or “What’s this I am not eating that” 
However many people are becoming more diverse sharing others people food but not necessarily their belief etc.

Question is does food have an effect on you or perhaps it is hardly likely to influence your social preferences? Let’s share our comments.
