Transcript of World Culture and Food

World Culture and Food
By Maddie Berrett
How does someone's culture affect the food they eat?
what did i do?
I researched world cultures and learned about them and found authentic recipes from the area and made them so I can experience a part of the culture.
Italy's culture
Very light breakfast (usually coffee and something sweet)
Lunch is the main meal. Eaten with family.
First course "primo" pasta
Main course "secondo" meat or fish with vegetables and salad
Eat slow and enjoy food
Food isn't just nourishment, it is life.
Food is considered a form of art
Many types of pasta and cheese
Pesto Chicken Florentine
France's Culture
Very prideful of their food
Known for their complex and rich flavors
Bread, wine and cheese
enjoy meals
Prepare food very carefully and slowly
China' s culture
Great respect at meals
Use chopsticks which reflect the wisdom of the ancient Chinese people
One of the richest and most diverse culinary heritages in the world.
A meal has two components: a carbohydrate or starch (rice or noodles) and a dish of vegetables, fish or meat
Rice is critical
Being a vegetarian is very uncommon
For much of history human manure was used as a fertilizer so raw foods are not eaten.
Usually no dessert. If there is one it's fresh fruit.
Cold beverages are believed to be harmful to the digestion of hot food. Drink hot tea or hot water.
Chinese Vegetable Stir Fry
Mexico's Culture
Food is based on social class and income
Work around their eating schedule
Healthy food rich in flavor
Eating habits originate from Spain

Corn, hot peppers, and beans

Food is an important aspect of family traditions
Influenced by Chinese, Indian, Dutch, French, Spanish, British, and Amerindian food

Rice is a staple food which is usually seasoned with coconut
Jerk chicken is very popular. Similar to Creole chicken
Tilapia with Coconut Rice and Mango Salsa
Ireland's culture
The arrival of the Anglo-Normans in Ireland in 1169 affected both farming and diet in Ireland.
Potato introduced in the late 1500s
Within 200 years, it replaced older staples (oats and dairy products)
Most cooking is done without herbs or spices, except for salt and pepper
Potatoes are in most dishes
Irish Potato Candy
Britain's culture
Emphasis on fine, fresh ingredients
Beef is a big industry
Oily fish and crustaceans
British breakfast is known worldwide (copious meal of porridge, fish, bacon and eggs, toast and marmalade)
Turkish Delight
Japan's Culture
Rice is a staple food
Fish is an integral part of their diet
Lost of noodle dishes
Eating meat was prohibited in Japan for more than a thousand years prior to 1868
A lot of Japanese restaurants specialize in one type of food
Cucumber Sunomono
Australia's culture
Rich variety of food and drinks
Dishes include seafood, native game and vegetables, as well as native fruits and nuts
Vegemite spread was invented in 1923 by a Melbourne scientist as a way to exploit the yeast left over from beer production
The influx of immigrants helped shape the food they eat
Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

YES! I learned about 8 different cultures and made food from all of them. I learned things that I didn't know before and I had a lot of fun.
