“Food for the body is not enough. There must be food for the soul.”
Every culture has their own take on cuisine. Evidently, a certain aesthetic lent itself to each of these cultures. What people consider “good” or “delicious” is, of course, subjective but oddly enough, people belonging to various cultures developed a collective ideal for the taste of food. It isn’t known why different people have different tastes. Perhaps, the indigenous people of every country learned to appreciate a cook’s creativity with the ingredients at hand. Cooking is, after all, the art of resourcefulness.
