Global Cultures & Cuisines

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This course introduces the student to Middle Eastern and Asian food cultures and regions of the world. Students will explore the foundations of these cultures through a study of history, societal norms, and major religious and political movements, as well as influencing factors such as climate and geography. As world cuisines continue to be an influential component of American cuisine, ethnic restaurants account for a large percentage of American food sales annually. Recent changes in US relationships with Asia as well as the Middle East increases the need for food service professionals to develop a greater understanding of the cuisines of these areas of the globe. In this course, students will use traditional techniques to produce meals representative of Asia, and the Middle East. Students will explore specific ingredients and essential characteristics of the selected cuisines to gain a better understanding of the food and flavor profiles indicative of Asian and Middle Eastern cultures.
