In an increasingly multicultural society, the terms “Authentic Cuisine” and “Ethnic Food” are often used and become more popular.
Today many people eat for pleasure rather than for survival. They want to consume foods that have a story behind them, especially when they are also good for health. As a result, there is an increasing interest in ethnic food.
People tend to share their culture and, of course, food with others. To prepare a national or religious dish for an ethnic holiday – for many people, this is very important.
Authentic Cuisine can be deﬁned as an ethnic group’s or a country’s cuisine: Greek food, Indian food, Italian food, Thai food, and Korean food are all considered ethnic food outside of their own countries.
Ethnic food is also part of the larger contexts of American, as well as international, cuisine. No ethnic food exists in a vacuum. Recipes were modified to accommodate changing time commitments, technology, and ingredients. In fact, it is the multicultural setting that makes ethnic food ethnic.
