Humpty Dumpty cuisine     A Black and White Cartoon of a Humpty Dumpty Looking Character - Royalty Free Clipart Picture

‘When I use a word’, Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less’. (Through the Looking Glass) source

"The time has come", the Walrus said,
 To talk of many things:
 Of shoes — and ships — and sealing wax —
 Of cabbages — and Kings —
 And why the Sea is boiling hot —
 And whether pigs have wings."

Get smart

Smart cuisine is a style of cooking that focuses on using high quality ingredients, that deliver a high level of nourishment. These ingredients, which we call “power ingredients”, are combined to provide a variety of health benefits with each meal. Some of these benefits include, heart health, prevention of various types of cancers, prevention of stroke, reduction of stress, increased metabolism, bone strength and prevention of osteoporosis, improved vision, improved digestion and skin health.

Smart cuisine also focuses on using short cooking techniques which bring out the foods’ natural flavors and prevent their nutrients from being “cooked” away. And what about the taste?, you might ask. It’s very easy to make food taste great when you use the very best.

Sounds good!  Is it an example of exploitation of a vogue word?  Everything needs to be smart these days.  Answer the question after looking at the source here.

Clearly, such an analysis as this could take forever.  If nothing else, any further searches might be best focused on making sense of cuisine in your own mind in order to reject the nonsense which prevails.

Select two acceptable cuisines and defend them in discussion.
