Italian term or phrase: pur nella falsificazione ad uso degli estranei
Contesto:

Centri di aggregazione intra-etnica e di incontro, i ristoranti etnici sono anche luoghi di mediazione culturale, che aiutano a costruire l'immagine dell'"altro", attraverso un percorso di semplificazione che ne sintetizza i tratti culturali salienti, in una sorta di "generalizzazione positiva". Da questo punto di vista, il cibo è forse il modo più immediato per entrare in contatto con un'altra cultura; mangiare il cibo degli altri, se non è considerato repellente o "impuro", è spesso più facile che parlarne la lingua, perché "la cucina è la soglia più accessibile, più assaggiabile, pur nella sua falsificazione ad uso degli estranei, di un'altra cultura" (La Cecla 1998: 60). È anche il modo che meglio si presta a mediare la diversità, attraverso la contaminazione dei sapori, l'incrocio di ingredienti, l'ibridazione delle ricette.

Molte Grazie,

Barbara

Explanation:
This is what it means...the food is not quite authentic as the locals make it but modified to be more palatable to the tourist.

neutral  philgoddard: Do you think this is strong enough for "falsificazione"?

  -> Yes, definitely. Falsificazione also has a 'weaker' connotation of manipulation, altering something's authentic nature, and I think that's what they mean here.
