Cultural Heritage

29 Oct

UNESCO has listed 和食 (Japanese cuisine) as one of the world’s integeral cultural treasures.

Some countries have one or two of their national dishes listed as such … but the list of countries whose entire cuisine is listed is very short!

Along with Japan, I believe there is only France, Mexico, Italy  and Turkey.

I love Japanese, Mexican and Italian food best!

      Maybe Cajun and / or Creole food is on the list.
      Some countries’ have a dish or two listed as cultural heritages. Not many, though, have their entire cuisine listed.
