The Art of Mixing

In a global world, cultures, gastronomies, and food trends are constantly mixing and mingling. As a result, ingredients, flavours, and culinary techniques cross paths, and get reinvented by cooks. To create new flavour combinations, it is important that the ingredients are carefully studied to properly balance textures and flavours. 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 flavours.
