The Art of Mixing

In a global world, cultures, gastronomies, and food trends are constantly mixing and mingling. Ingredients, flavors and culinary techniques cross paths, allowing for the experimentation of new flavor combinations and textures, resulting in "hybrid dishes" with new and unique flavors. Creating these new flavor combinations can be tricky, and it is important that the ingredients are carefully chosen to properly balance textures and flavors. Although the term "fusion" may be relatively recent and associated with modern and innovative cuisine, the Age of Discovery was certainly one of the key periods for the exchange of culinary knowledge, ingredients, and flavors.
