Following the cultural turn of geography, and the introduction of perspectives from "body" and "sentiment", the space topics on gastronomic culture have attracted human geographers' attention. Based on Breakwell's(1986, 1992) Identity Process Theory, and on the deep interview materials of 38 local residents in Guangzhou, this paper discusses the influence of exotic gastronomic culture on place identity and generational differences in this process.Results indicate that the influx of exotic food culture arouses multiple senses of identity crisis among the older generation in Guangzhou, which stimulates them to take practices to reinvigorate the traditional local culinary culture, and to construct their place identity through their loyalty and insistence on traditions. However, for young people who live in the environment of both exotic and local gastronomic cultures since childhood, they are adopting the inclusive attitudes towards different cultures and the skillful strategies in varied contexts to construct their place identity, thus to alleviate the place identity crisis. These generational differences reflect the rotated political structure of gastronomic cultural space, which gestates the inheritance and succession of local culinary culture.
