The factor that most influenced Italian cuisine is, however, the historical one: the tumultuous history of our country, made up of continuous invasions and a high degree of fragmentation in the states and small states has led to a great cultural diversity which has greatly influenced the cuisine of each area. For example, dishes and typical cuisine of Emilia are Lombard and French-style, cow's meat and pork, butter and milk. Entering Romagna, just out from the province of Bologna, traditional cuisine changes radically: the cheeses are sheep, sheep meat is consumed so much, and you use the extra virgin olive oil. The boundary that determines those differences is what divides the state of the Church and Lombard rule, first tied to the traditions of pastoralism and cultivation of the second related to the breeding of cattle. Such examples, there are dozens, all over the Italian territory, and that is why Italian food has become what it is, a collection of dozens of local and regional cuisines.
The answers to all the questions I will answer in this preface lie in the following. Not only but also with respect to the 'Burmese' cuisine it is a fatal (but, alas, quite often made) mistake to assume that Burmese and Bamar (Burman) is the same for it is definitely not. Burma is the country and the Bamar are one of the ethnic groups inhabiting Burma. Since the Bamar - also called Burman - constitute the largest ethnic group of this country the British named it after them Burma; and Burma's citizens are Burmese. But not every Burmese is a Bamar. Only members of the Bamar, which is one of Burma's ethnic groups, are Bamar. Subsequently, we have to differentiate between the country Burma, its citizens the Burmese and members of one of the ethnic groups of Burma, the Bamar. This means that there is a Burmese cuisine (the country's cuisine) and a Bamar cuisine (the ethnic group's cuisine) but these two cuisines are not the same. The problem with the original or traditional Bamar cuisine is that no one knows what dishes it comprises. The root problem with this is that no one knows where exactly the Bamar are coming from. If that would be known beyond any reasonable doubt we would also know what their cuisine is.
If there is one thing that can be said about the Indian cuisine is that, even if a lot of international cuisines have greatly influenced the traditional recipes and methods of Indian cooking, it has always retained its authenticity and originality. Furthermore, it has retained its culture and history, particularly when it comes to avoiding the use of pork or beef in their dishes due to religious reasons. As stated above, there are a variety of regional Indian cuisines that helped shape what it is right now. These regions are the Awadhi, Mughlai, Bengali, Rajasthani, Konkani, Udupi, Malabari, Punjabi, Hyderabadi, Sindhi, Marwari, Chettinadu, Dogri, Kashmiri, and Marathi. These regional Indian cuisines differ in ingredients used as well as methods used in cooking their dishes, and each regional Indian cuisine will be discussed in short details in the succeeding articles.
