  • Exploring global flavors adds excitement and creativity to cooking routines.
  • Ingredients like soy sauce, curry, and pasta make cross-cultural experimentation seamless.


If my question makes any sense the way I phrased it. For example, I’m not Italian, but due to all the spices I have, the low cost and versatility of pastas and for me it being the easiest flavors to pair ingredients with, it is the most cooked regional cuisine I cook for my family.


Wherever salads are from.


French here, and I love experiencing with the flavours of Chinese cuisine. One of my friends brought me Szechuan peppercorns from his hometown as well as Chinese dried chili, and OMG, it makes such a big difference!


Mexican and Italian. Even tie.


Japanese. I always keep soy sauce, mirin, miso, and nori on hand. Tamagoyaki is my favorite way to cook eggs. Okonomiyaki, onigiri, ramen, curry, and kabayaki fish are all things I make regularly.


I tend to migrate between Mexican and Indian, generally.


Probably Italian. Followed by French, then Czech, then Chinese, then Tex-Mex. I used to make even more Czech dishes, but I now live in the Czech Republic, so it’s not as necessary.
