The French are known for their interest in art and all that is fine. It therefore comes as no surprise that they have given exalted status to what other's simply call - cooking. The children of renaissance did not deem it fit that something that gives one extreme pleasure should have such a coarse name. So they called it 'cuisine' meaning culinary art. Though it has various other connotations, all related to cooking, the word cuisine is now identified with the best of food, which is both delicious and comes from different parts of the world.

Cuisine is basically a definite set of cooking methods and traditions, which are usually associated with the specific place of origin. At times, you might find religious food laws exercising a strong authority on cuisine. The ingredients available locally also contribute to a dish having a specific taste or flavor. Moreover, if a specific regional dish is cooked outside that region, it needs to adapt itself to the acceptable taste of that country or region. For example, the 'Indian' dish butter chicken is adapted to suit the British or American palate in the respective countries.

As rapid technological advances power the world ahead, the world of cooking is not far behind. The last century has seen immense improvements in terms of food production, the preservation of food, its storage, and transportation. The world is now termed a global village and in conformity with this accepted fact, you see an influx of different cuisines in all parts of the world. This means that a region not only has access to its own traditional cuisine, but also access to cuisines from other regions, locales, and countries of the world. The various cuisines are regularly going through cycles of innovations, which have seen a rise in their aesthetic value as well as the popularity of their cooks.

But cuisine does not only include food but many people hold that it also includes, beverages like, tea, coffee, wine, and various other drinks. Generally, cuisine is categorized according to the geographical area, that it is found in. Today, people go to restaurants to check out the new cuisines that have entered the market. People are getting more adventurous, in terms of their eating habits, tastes, and anything else to do with cooking. To conclude, it is safe to say that the field of cooking is all set to grow and conquer new heights.
So brace yourself for a culinary journey that will last as long as there are people on this earth.
