Food Around The World
Quanjude started to run their business in Beijing, specializing in Peking Duck. It has become the most famous restaurant for Roast Duck, a must-taste food in Beijing and China (Song C. 2014).
Peking Duck is considered one of China’s national and most famous dishes. Originating from Beijing, Peking Duck is known for its thin and crispy skin. The Sliced Peking Duck is often enjoyed with pancakes, sweet bean sauce, or soy with mashed garlic (Wu, Annie 2014).
The food aspect of celebrations is very important. Traditionally, a Chinese family will have a poster of the Kitchen God hanging in their house and Chinese New Year is the time that they offer food sacrifices and offerings to him. Different types of foods have different meanings and significance, as an example dried apricots represent wealth and gold (Nationsonline 2013).
Throughout history, the Chinese have constantly had to accommodate new eating habits because of the scarcity of food and their rapidly growing population. Dishes were created using sparse amounts of meat mixed with rice or noodles. This became known as stir-frying, the most common method of cooking (Advameg 2014).
In Italy, Christmas is celebrated with a Christmas Eve Dinner which consists of seven types of fish (or nine, eleven or thirteen depending on where you are from) and is known as La Vigilia Napoletana. On Christmas Day, typical meals include Baccalà (salted dried cod fish), Vermicelli, Baked Pasta, Capon and Turkey with sweets to follow (cookingwithnonna.com 2014).
History of Cooking
Italian cuisine derives its roots from the various regions within Italy including Lombard, Sicily, and Veneto. Pre 18th century, Italian books tended to reflect French cuisine rather than emphasise Italy’s regionalism however at the beginning of the 18th century books began to be addressed to housewives rather than to chefs (C. Steendahl 2014)
One of the most famous Italian chefs is Antonio Carluccio who, known as the Godfather of Italian cooking, is based in London where he has taken over the Neal Street Restaurant, opened a deli, and owns Carluccio's Caffè (Antonio Carluccio 2014).
Many Italian dishes have become popular throughout the Western world. These dishes include Spaghetti Bolognese, Pizza Margherita and Gnocchi (Time Inc Lifestyle Group 2014).
United Kingdom
Heston Blumenthal's Dinner, at the Hyde Park Mandarin Oriental hotel was rank 5th in “The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards in 2014”(Hyslop 2014). The food is “inspired by historic British gastronomy” (Dinner by Heston Blumenthal c.2014).
Scotland is famous for its national dish haggis. Haggis is “often served with mashed neeps and tatties (that’s Scots for turnip and potatoes)” (Visit Scotland 2014).
In Wales St David’s Day is on the 1st March. Some foods eaten when celebrating include: Bara Brith, Welsh Cakes, Welsh Rarebit and Cawl (Wales.com 2014).
Britain’s history has shaped their food cuisine. The Romans introduced a variety of vegetables and herbs. The Vikings and Danes introduced new cooking methods such as smoking. The Tudor period was the introduction of worldwide cuisine due to trading with other countries (Johnson 2014).

Cooking for a Celebration
Australians often celebrate with a humble Barbeque. Barbeques are held at Christmas, birthdays, special events, or for no occasion at all. A barbeque meal can be a simple sausage on bread, or a more elaborate seafood affair. Many Australians enjoy drinking alcohol socially. (Wells n.d)
A Recipe
Australia is a multicultural nation and the modern diet consists of food originating from all over the world. Traditionally, Aboriginal people survived on a ‘hunt and gather’ diet that was affected by geographical landform, season and climate. (put intext ref here- nt.gov.au). European settlement introduced farmed foods. (Northern Teritory Department of Health 2007)

The French are famous for some of our sweetest dishes, these include Fruit Tarts and Crepes.Two dishes the French are truly famous for are Les Cuisses de Grenouille or Frogs Legs and Les Escargots or Snails.
French cooking is described as refined and decorative. French cuisine was truly born in the 16th Century when trade began with Italy, French cuisine adapted Italian methods and experimentation with native produce (Davis 2012).

This group presentation provides credible and interesting information about foods from Australia, France, Italy, the United Kingdom and China. Through our collaborative effort we have produced an informative guide outlining famous chefs, famous dishes, celebratory cooking, history of cooking and a recipe from each respective country.
We have taken you on a journey of food from around the world, from Australia, France, Italy, The United kingdom and China. We hope you have been able to build on your prior knowledge of food from around the world. We have collaborated to bring you information from the web which has accuracy, authority, objectivity, currency and coverage (Metzger 2007).
