The theme and the title of the story might arouse two emotions in you, either you feel your mouth producing some familiar sensations driven by desire (though a positive one) or might get inquisitive to find whether you are a gourmet. But the fact remains, delicious cuisines are the universal culprits that makes us submit to the sin of earthly satisfaction. Anyways, who cares!!!
Food with exotic aroma and awesome looks is not subject to hunger, will or so to say, preference. You see them, your jaws drop and like Newtonian law, you find yourself grabbing it in no time. And it really doesn't matter if you feed your stomach or your soul.
Every part of the world is ethnically rich in its own food items, ingredients, preparations and finally, the presentation. And a seasoned traveler knows very well that mere sight seeing and hunting for food joints serving your own local food (many does that) is not the elements of a enlightening tour. The real fun aspect is to enjoy the local flavor, and what better than the cuisines of a particular destination.
Presenting today is some of the best cuisines from all around the globe:
French Cuisines: The eternal epitome of style, aura and romance, France is a hub for foodies that prefer class and sophistication. The predominance of cheese in the French dishes is a familiar phenomena accompanied by some excellent wine that takes you to an another level just by the sight of it. Sitting in the corner table in a plush French restaurant relishing the stunning cuisines presented in a dimmed light background is no less than starry.
Italian Cuisines: A well heard name in todays world signifying matchless enigma and glory, the Italian cuisines are a 'must taste' for a vacation in this charming country. The most interesting feature about a typical Italian dish is its segregation of items as- antipasto (appetizer), primo (pasta or rice), secondo (meat course) and the dolce (dessert). The wide variety of cheese and sausages found here marks the multi-course ethnic cuisines.
Chinese Cuisines: This one is perhaps one of the most popular in the world. There is hardly anyone who hasn't heard about it or tasted it at least once. The main course of Chinese cuisines is identified by the noddles and rice that are served in bowls. The feel of enjoying a Chinese dish in China with chopsticks in your hands (though you might struggle while using it!) is surely way different than taking it anywhere else.
Indian Cuisines: The diversity of culture in India is responsible for the extended range of Indian cuisines. The North Indian dishes are different from the South ones; the Eastern cuisines are not like the Western flavor. However, despite the myriad forms, Indian cuisines are known to be high on spice and vegetarian food dominates the menu. The non-vegetarian items are usually marked by chicken, mutton and fish. Rice and breads (known as rotis or chapatis) are the stapled diet with diversions like paranthas, dosas, idlis and so on.
Thai Cuisines: Though rice prevails in every dish of Thailand the variety they offer is mind blowing as you are to find all the different tastes at the same time- bitter, sweet, hot and sour. The use of lime juice and lemon grass adds the herbal touch whereas the raw beef, fermented fish paste or deep fried insect larvae will give you a whole new dimension of non-vegetarian flavor.
Japanese Cuisines: Fast catching the global attention, the Japanese food is at its best in the Tokyo restaurants that numbers in more than 150. Essentially seasonal, Japanese cuisines are loaded with rice and soybeans. Try out some Sushi, Wasabi, Sashimi and Soba in the land where they belong to.
Spanish Cuisines: Ready for some Latino delicacies? Worth mentioning among all Western and Central European cuisines, the Spanish food is marked by the exuberance of meat, fish and fresh vegetables. Known for its seafood, Spanish cuisines goes best with the drink called Sangria, a cocktail made of wine and fruits.
Greek Cuisines: In wide conclusion, it will be safe to assert that the Greek cuisines are a fusion of the Turkish and Italian flavor. The people who has taken it before talks about the use of olive oil, vegetables and herbs specific to the Mediterranean region in a Greek dish.
Lebanese Cuisines: Full of vegetables, little amount of meat and abundance of flavors- these are the characteristics of a Lebanese dish. The influence of Arabic culture in Lebanese food habits is evident from the availability of the Arabic sweets all across the nation. Relish some Mezze, full with fruit, fresh fish, little animal fat, pickles, salads and Arabic bread.
Get ready to enjoy the taste of the land next time you are out on a vacation.
