20 Delectable Cuisines of the World to Tickle Your Taste Buds ...


Food has always been a major factor in every culture, but in the last few decades, cuisines of the world have migrated from their original homes to become known all over.

Food knows no boundaries or borders, and thanks to food imports/exports, no cuisine is unachievable in our own kitchens.

Check if you have cookbooks representing these cuisines of the world in your collection.

1. Italian Cuisine

Italian Cuisine

One of the oldest cuisines of the world is Italian.2

Everyone associates Italian cuisine with pizza, pasta and ice cream but in reality, Italian food is hugely variable, and something that probably isn’t so well known is that food in Italy is distinctively regional, with 20 regions.

Wherever you might be though, you can usually expect an Italian meal to be structured as follows: Antipasto (appetizer), primo (rice or pasta), second (meat) and dolce (dessert).

Famous for Parmesan cheese and Parma Ham, Italy actually produces more than 400 types of cheeses and 300 different types of sausages.

2. Thai Cuisine

Thai Cuisine

One of the most popular world cuisines of recent times is Thai.

Although many people assume it is similar to Chinese, Thai food, although using many of the same ingredients, is different in that there are lots of broths, noodle dishes and the use of a lot of fresh herbs.

Unlike Chinese, there isn’t a great deal of dishes that are a main ingredient with vegetables in a thick rich sauce.2

The main flavors of Thai food are hot, sour, bitter and sweet.

3. French Cuisine

French Cuisine

Along with Italian, French was one of the first world cuisines that traveled well beyond its home country’s borders.3

Indeed, the modern restaurant has its roots in France and for many, many years, French food was thought of as haute cuisine.

Many top chefs today still like to be classically French trained.

French food ranges from rustic and hearty to the very finest, theatrical, almost art-like Michelin Star style and no French meal would be complete without bread, cheese and wine.
