Generalisation
 

The most widely understood type, in outline and in UK context, is French or Chinese cuisine.  One imagines that British people are less clear as to what British cuisine is.  ... Discuss.

That might lead to the conclusion that X country cuisine is an important concept and is a major influence on the choice of home or foreign holiday destinations.  That decision made, some might want to go to a specific region even if it is to explore Cornish cuisine [nothing wrong in that!].  Thus, the parent category of French or Chinese cuisine is gastro-geographical cuisine.  Its grandson might be Andalusian Cuisine
here, as an example.


===============================================
 

Then there are time-zone versions such as Medieval cuisine, moderne and nouvelle.  At least the last of these is only apparently time-zoned.  Discuss. 
  
 
We can move on to modes of cuisine. 
 

So far, the list follows.  You need to add cuisine before or after as appropriate

ancienne

aux mille senteurs

bourgeoise

=========================

That is the end of general reading.  Students could explore items of interest.  Why different text colours? 

We could go on for days as this list suggests. source  "Sandwiches cuisine", for example, needs to justify itself.

... or even this !




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Finally, consider this:

Many cultures have a recognizable cuisine, a specific set of cooking traditions using various spices or a combination of flavors unique to that culture, which evolves over time. Other differences include preferences (hot or cold, spicy, etc.) and practices, the study of which is known as gastronomy. Many cultures have diversified their foods by means of preparation, cooking methods, and manufacturing. This also includes a complex food trade which helps the cultures to economically survive by way of food, not just by consumption. Some popular types of ethnic foods include Italian, French, Japanese, Chinese, American, Cajun, Thai, and Indian cuisine [cuisines ?]
. Various cultures throughout the world study the dietary analysis of food habits. While evolutionarily speaking, as opposed to culturally, humans are omnivores.  Religion ... will often affect which foods they will consume. Food is eaten and typically enjoyed through the sense of taste, [and] the perception of flavor from eating and drinking. Certain tastes are more enjoyable than others, for evolutionary purposes. source
