This paper represents an investigation into Romanian phraseology of an onomasiological field from a cultural perspective, in a context where, it is only more recently that the cultural foundation of phraseology has been duly noticed as playing an important role. In this article, we shall attempt to analyze the way in which representations related to the food act, on which Romanian phraseological structures rely, generate real paradigms of meaning depending on the position that vegetables and fruits occupy in the culture-nature relationship.
