List of cuisines

The following is a list of cuisines. A cuisine is a specific set of cooking traditions and practices, often associated with a specific culture or region. Each cuisine involves food preparation in a particular style, of food and drink of particular types, to produce individually consumed items or distinct meals. A cuisine is frequently named after the region or place where it originated. A cuisine is primarily influenced by the ingredients that are available locally or through trade. Religious food laws can also exercise a strong influence on such culinary practices.

Cuisines by region

  • Global cuisine – a cuisine that is practiced around the world. A cuisine is a characteristic style of cooking practices and traditions,[1] often associated with a specific region, country[2] or culture. To become a global cuisine, a local, regional or national cuisine must spread around the world; it's food served world-wide.
  • Regional cuisine – based upon national, state or local regions.[3] Regional cuisines may vary based upon food availability and trade, varying climates, cooking traditions and practices, and cultural differences.[4] One noteworthy definition is based upon traditional cuisine: "A traditional cuisine is a coherent tradition of food preparation that rises from the daily lives and kitchens of a people over an extended period in a specific region of a country, or a specific country, and which, when localized, has notable distinctions from the cuisine of the country as a whole."[4]
