Cuisine, in simple terms, is a style of cooking. It varies from country to country, and even from region to region and community to community. Each cuisine reflects the cultural, economic and historic background of the region and can be thought of as a window into its culture. If you look at Indian cuisine, there are several famous cuisines ranging from South Indian and Maharashtrian to Gujarati, Punjabi and Rajasthani. On the other hand, word cuisine comprises distinct styles like Italian, Lebanese, Thai, American and Mexican, to name a few. When you plan a meal, you could pick a particular cuisine as a theme and select all the courses from that cuisine, or you could create a fusion experience by combining dishes from different cuisines. In order to please the Indian palate, sometimes international recipes are given an Indian touch, resulting in Indo-Chinese, Indo-Western, and other such hybrid cuisines. Explore authentic recipes of different cuisines as well as some fusion or hybrid variants in this section.
