Background on World Fusion Food
Fusion cuisine is the style of cooking that produces dishes combining techniques, recipes, ingredients and other culinary elements from different cuisines. An example of this is the fusion of Asian cuisines such as Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese and Chinese. It is of particular interest to vegans since it is relatively simple to take vegan-friendly ideas from different cuisines and combine them together.
This form of cookery really hit the heights of popularity in the 1990s. At this time, cuisines from across the world had found their way into most major towns and cities, in the form of restaurants and specialised food stores. People living in urbans areas had become accustomed to being able to choose to dine at an Italian, French, Spanish, Mexican, Indian, Thai, Chinese, Lebanese ... or even a Mongolian restaurant! International restaurants, that created menus with dishes from many countries across the world, became popular. It was quite a natural step from there to experiment with combining those dishes or ingredients.
In reality, all cuisines are the result of fusion; every country has been influenced by foreign trade and the exchange of foods, ideas, traditions and techniques. This is simply a consequence of travel. Now in the modern era, the world has "become a smaller place" and the fusion of ideas in every facet of life, including food, is a reality of life to most people.
Our World fusion section also includes recipes that have fused, or share, culinary roots, and it is not possible to classify the recipe in any other section. We hope to bring you more vegan World Fusion recipes soon.
