The Americas contain a remarkable diversity of cultures, languages, indigenous and imported folk traditions, and of course, food. Pan American culinary flavours are subtly infused by the specific earth in which a plant grew, the particular pastures where an animal grazed, or the exact waters in which a fish swam.
