Modern cuisines uses a wide variety of ingredients from all over the world. The intermix of cuisine cultures ,for example a fusion of African and British styles; Indian cuisine has blended with Swahili,and so on. This maybe described as `eclectic` cuisine ,which is the deriving of ideas ,tastes and styles of cooking from various sources. This is as a result of the world getting “smaller” due to fast transport and tourism.
The fusion or eclectic cuisine is not new ,it was practiced in the ancient world where different communities would share foods and styles of cooking . This fusion has been enhanced by globalisation, that is the bringing together of countries,people,cultures and cuisines.
