Con-Fusion Cuisine

Mar 05, 10 Con-Fusion Cuisine

what fusion cuisine is all about Fusion cuisine, FYI, is a blend of culinary traditions from two or more nations that creates innovative new dishes and flavors. It is not the last minute jumble of leftovers and random ingredients found in your kitchen. This concept has been around for decades but only in recent years has it really started to take flight and become trendy. Nowadays you can find a fusion restaurant on every corner. Hey, even Tex-Mex counts as fusion.

But if you’re game for something a little more exotic, try Japanese/Peruvian/Brazilian food, a unique blend that resulted from the emigration of thousands of Japanese to South America in the early 20th century. If you’re wondering what kind of dishes this union might breed, imagine sashimi ceviche and South American beef maki rolls. An up-and-coming fusion trend is Korean-Mexican, which is causing sensación in California. This exceptional union was born in an itinerant taco truck called Kogi Korean BBQ-To-Go (http://kogibbq.com). Their bulgogi burritos and tofu-chili tacos with kimchee have since become a cult phenomenon with followers obsessively checking Kogi’s Twitter feed to find out the truck’s next stop. Take a break from frijoles and maduros and give your taste buds a treat.
