Traditional Foods and Types Of Cooking

Cooking can sometimes become boring, especially when you have tried out a lot of recipes and find yourself making the same meal over and over again. You can change this, and make your kitchen a place of creativity and delicious tastes.

Fusion Cooking

Over the years, and with the process of opening the world market, and making it global made many foods that were considered delicacies a more common thing. This has led to an increased interest in traditional foods and types of cooking. This interest is also visible in the restaurant industry, with national type restaurants popping up all over the world.

This process has been going on for quite some time, and our taste buds are getting used to some of the tastes that are out there.

What is Fusion Cooking?

The principle is simple to understand, but not that easy to apply. What you need to understand is that this is a process by which you combine foods and different styles of cooking from all over the world in order to make your authentic meal; based on well-known ones.

Sound simple enough, but when it comes to the combination you want to make it can be a bit difficult. There are a lot of spices and food types to choose from, making a right combination is an art form. But there is no clear instruction on how to do this, one has to make a combination and try them out until he is satisfied with the outcome. Remember this is a multinational experiment, and there are no borders in what you can try.

Some Examples

national cuisines in one mealSo, the main principle of this cooking is to combine two or more cooking types or national cuisines in one meal. Some advice before stating this cooking process: make sure you think about the food you want to make, about how it is going to taste, smell the herbs together before applying them to the dish, and don’t overdo it. You still have to eat the meal at the end.

For instance, you can make Chinese stilled meal in a wok using local vegetables, or meat products. You can take a well-known recipe for an apple pie and transform it by playing around with the filling or the dough. There’s no limit on the combinations you can make.

For those of you who don’t want to experiment there are a lot of options from other people, hat you can choose from.  Some of these include Mac N’ Cheese Pancake Sandwich (macaroni and cheddar are mixed in with the pancake batter), Vegan Big Mac Steamed Bun, Bruschetta Tandoori Chicken, Chocolate Chip Cookie Shot (the cookies are molded into a cup, and cream or milk are added), and Spaghetti Tacos.

These types of cooking will probably never become a staple of our kitchens and restaurants, but this doesn’t mean that we always have to eat the same things. With a little research and creativity, you can make your own unique meal to enjoy.
