Do you know that the Three Grand Cuisines are French, Chinese, Turkish?
There are various theories why these were chosen and main reasons are as follows.
(1) The royal cuisines of these countries were developing.
(2) The land of these countries is wide and has abundant ingredients.
(3) These countries were thriving in trade, making it easy to get food from other countries.
(4) These countries are the center of culture In each region and have great influence on other countries.
(5) Interest in meals is high
I understood well about these reasons. However, there is obvious discomfort in me. Yes, that is caused by Turkish food.
Turkish food is certainly delicious. The other day a Norwegian friend taught me a delicious Turkish restaurant and so I went there. It was very delicious. However, the question remains as to whether Turkish cuisine is among the top three in the world. (← Sorry! Turkish people m (__) m)
So, I would like to ask all of you, what food do you choose for the New World’s three great dishes?
Unlike in the past, it is not necessary to think about the above five factors now and even ordinary people like me can eat delicious dishes and can get food materials from all over the world easily.
When I asked my friends, There was a person who pinpointed “It’s Northeast Chinese food!”
A friend who like curry has chosen India. A friend who likes beer chose German cuisine. It was because there are many dishes that match beer. Some people answered “curry, ramen, hamburgers!” He did not choose countries, lol The reason he answered so was “Food is not belonging to a specific country now.” Certainly, Indian curry and Japanese curry are different things, so I think it make sense. Even in Chinese food, Cantonese cuisine and Szechuan cuisine have different taste.
Then, it becomes difficult to define ” New Three Grand Cuisines so I changed the question to ‘Please list the three countries where the food is delicious’.
Below are the countries my friends chose.
France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Germany, Mexico, India, China / Taiwan, Korea, Thailand,
Vietnam and Japan.
I chose China / Taiwan, Italy and Japan.
What do you think??
Besides the world’s three greatest cuisines(世界三大料理), there are expressions of [the world’s three greatest ___(世界三大〇〇)] such as the world’s three greatest night views(世界三大夜景), the world’s three biggest disappointments(世界三大がっかり).
The world’s three largest ___ can be good conversational topics, so please remember (^ ^) /
