Another problem arising from this approach is cultural narrowness of Italians if they are too often in the prior backyard, thinking that there is no better than the one that offers their territory and what their mother's kitchen prepares home. This lack of openness can not do the Italians a people further back, in terms of food culture, compared to other countries, where the various cuisines of the world have been in contact with each other by making the taste of the public and open the mentality of the people. The Land of Spices, India boasts of several mouth-watering cuisines which delight the gourmet the world over no end. So much so that when they fail to find Indian food in their respective nations, they, taking the fabled Spice Route, travel to India on the spice trail to enjoy the various tasty and lip-smacking Indian cuisines.

Before the mid-sixteenth century, the cuisine of Trentino-Alto Adige was extremely simple. The inhabitants ate only to keep body and soul together. The cuisine had far to go and a lot to develop. Many historical events that took place after this lent a distinct shape and flavor to the cuisine of this region. Council of Trent. The Council of Trent was the first event of significance that changed the cuisine of this region for the better in 1550, the year in which it was organized. This council was an Ecumenical Council of the Roman Catholic Church, organized to find ways of countering the rise of Protestant Reformation. One would wonder how such an event, which bore no connection whatsoever to cuisine, influenced the food habits of the inhabitants of this region. The religious officials who participated in this event, were gourmets who appreciated fine cuisine, which was why this event inspired the people of this region to prepare and appreciate fine cuisine. This is one of the best examples of how historical events can shape a region's cuisine.

The differences in climate and land are obvious: it goes from the Alps, with typical mountain climate, the Po Valley, continental climate, the hills of central, coastal areas, up to the southern regions and islands, with their temperate climate. These differences have an impact not only on the available raw material (for example the fish on the coast, inland to the flesh), but also on processed products. Think of a product used in the classic Italian cuisine such as sausages. In Emilia Romagna there is a humid climate with cold winters perfect for seasoning meats, which allows a minimal addition of salt and then the production of sausages and "soft", in Tuscany the unfavorable environment requires the use of much salt, in the south has forced the addition of even more aggressive seasonings like chili pepper and other spices, to ensure the conservation and cover any unpleasant flavors of the meat.

The entire South East Asian region loves the spicy and hot Indian food and the local cuisines of the area show strong Indian influence.

Actually, the Indian food shows strong foreign influence especially of the Middle East, Central Asia, Mediterranean, and Europe (particularly Portugal and England). Tomato, chilies, and potato used generously and commonly in preparing the various food items in India were introduced to India by Portugal.

I believe that from my writing it has become clear that 'Burmese' cuisine does not mean 'Bamar' cuisine and that about the latter nothing conclusive is known. And even if the Bamar have contributed (which I believe they have) with a few recipes to what is called 'Burmese' cuisine they have no part in all the other ethnic foods and dishes that already existed for a very long time (actually for many centuries) when they came into what is nowadays Burma (Myanmar).Since eating is integral part of life it does, subsequently, also take place on the floor with the food being placed on a very low usually round table while the diners are sitting on the floor. Burmese do usually eat with their fingers. Only soup is eaten with short Chinese spoons and in case of noodle soup the noodles are eaten with chopsticks. Bowls with water and lemon pieces to wash hands and fingers as well as small towels are provided on the table.
