World’s best cuisines

    Food and travel go together like love and marriage; you can’t have one without the other, and if you do, it’s bound to be unsatisfying. Unless, of course, you’re one of those people who regards eating as a chore. Oh, the horror! This post goes out to all you foodies out there; the ones who go to bed dreaming of your last meal and wake up thinking of your next one.

    1. French cuisine
    No points for guessing our number one pick. Yep, it’s French cuisine – the “crème de la crème” of the culinary world. French cooking has its roots in the Middle Ages when it brought rich banquets to the French Revolution. In today’s world, it’s known as “haute cuisine” and is as popular as the arts. Good pastries, cheese, bread and wine are where it’s at when it comes to French cuisine. [French recipes]

    2. Italian Cuisine
    Italian cuisine is positively ancient with roots stretching back to the 4th century BC. It evolved via the discovery of the New World which brought potatoes, tomatoes, pepper and corn on the list of ingredients. An Italian meal is structured into several sections: antipasto (the appetiser), primo (pasta or rice dish), secondo (meat course) and dolce (dessert). Italy is also famous for over 400 kinds of cheese, including the famous Parmigianino Reggiano, and 300 types of sausage. [Italian recipes]

    3. Chinese cuisine
    Did you know that Chinese cuisine is eaten by a third of the world’s population every day? Here’s another bit of trivia for you – most Chinese food is prepared in bite-sized pieces because knives and forks as weapons. Usually, every person at the table is given a bowl of rice while the other dishes are shared by one and all. Peking Duck, anyone? [Chinese recipes]

    4. Indian cuisine
    Sadly, only one part of the Indian cuisine is known to the world. The Indian food served in restaurants worldwide is North Indian, also known as Mughlai or Punjabi. There are three other categories of Indian cuisine which don’t get much airtime: South, East and West. The foods are mostly vegetarian, but many include lamb, goat, chicken and fish. Indian cuisine is usually very spicy, so slow and steady is the name of the game if you’re not used to fiery food. [Indian recipes]

    5. Thai cuisine
    Thai food alone, with its balanced mix of hot, sour, bitter and sweet, is a good enough reason to visit Thailand. Thai dishes are all about fresh herbs and flavours like lime juice, lemon grass and coriander. If you’re looking to get a kick of out your lunch, try the raw beef or fermented fish paste. Or for something to turn heads at your next dinner party, how about deep-fried insect larvae? [Thai recipes]

    6. Mexican cuisine
    Got a hankering for some iguana, insects, rattlesnake or spider monkey? Mexican cuisine has it all covered. Known for its varied flavours and spices, the food of Mexico is a result of the Spanish conquistadores’ interaction with the Aztec culture.. The French also had their part in the story, adding baked goods, such as sweet breads and the ‘bolillo’ (meaning ‘French bread’). [Mexican recipes]

    7. Japanese cuisine
    What’s not to love about Japanese food? We can see why it’s rapidly becoming a worldwide trend. White rice and soybeans are the staples of most Japanese dishes. In the 2014 Michelin Guide, 14 restaurants in Tokyo and Shonan maintain their three stars. A Michelin three-star rating is considered the ultimate international recognition in the culinary world. Nice work, Japan. [Japanese recipes]

    8. Spanish cuisine
    Paella, tapas, churros and fried potatoes are just a few of the tasty treats dished up by the food-loving Spaniards. Yum, yum and yum! Let’s just ignore the fact that Spanish cooking uses the most oil among all Western and Central European cuisines. Oh well, at least it’s olive oil which is good for the old ticker. If you’re looking for something to wash down your Spanish feast with, Sangria is the answer (a drink made of red wine, fruits and a splash of brandy). [Spanish recipes]

    9. Greek cuisine
    Olive oil, vegetables, feta and herbs like oregano, mint and rosemary are all the rage in Greek cooking. Significant influence from the Turkish and Italian cuisine can be seen in popular dishes like Moussaka, Tzatziki and Spanakopita (spinach pie). Eating in Greece is a different experience from Greek restaurants in other countries – ‘gyros’ for example (like a Donner Kebab) is considered as junk food by Greeks. [Greek recipes]

    10. Lebanese cuisine
    Lebanese cuisine dishes up all the goodness the Middle East has to offer. Foods are generally Mediterranean, high on vegetables, low on meat and full of flavours. We can’t get enough of the mezze – a selection of dips, pickles, salads and nibbles with Arabic bread. Lebanon is also famous for the Arabic sweets, Tripoli being referred to as the ‘Sweet Capital‘ of Lebanon. [Lebanese recipes]

      I’m sorry but I think Mexican food should be at least in the 3 place, not in 6, Well but I’m glad it make it to the list, but needs way more credit that a 6 place….

      I am not jealous about France, or french, at all. Let me say, everything, including food, from there is so overrated! French smell of snob!

    3. Peter Ford says on June 7, 2012 at 10:20 am:

      If YOu de-emphasize and underrate indian food, You are veritably wrong., Possible chance is that you have never tasted indian food from a good chef. Because indian food is just flavorsome and mouth watering with many miscellaneousness, .North indian food is either more spicy or more sweet. So i love south indian food the best. Its not just the spicy food but also the delicous sweet dishes such as payasam is also just scrumptious. The indian “chat” items are even fantastic. The only problem is that if you want delicous food you must try it from a good chef., a person who actually knows how to cook., I have an indian friend who is a keralite. His dad is an excellent chef. So iam lucky in that part.
      According to me
      1.- 70 %South indian, 30 % North indian
      2.- Portuguese food.
      3. Thai [spicy is fantastic]
      4. Italian [WOW]
      5. Korean [spicy]
      6. South-African [ yummy]
      7. Peruvian food [too good]
      8. Spanish Cuisine [ light foods ]

      most of you are so stupid, go buy yourselves a brain, most have you have never eaten anything else but their own food and they say ” wtf my food is not on the ranking” or they say this country s food is overated because these retards have visited 2 or 3 bad restaurants and then they know everything about this culture, or they say they love chinese food, but the only food they ate what vietnamese food…you re so pathetic, buy a cooking s book, visit a few contry, and then you ll make your choice

    5. roger collins says on June 21, 2012 at 2:44 am:

      Italian food should not even be on the list, it’s nothing but slop. Everyday it’s the same shit, pasta or pizza.

    6. nada says on June 24, 2012 at 10:01 pm:

      im sorry but for the people who are saying italian food well its only spagghetti and pizza mostly and crusted chicken my family cooks italian when my mom is too lazy to make something real

    7. John says on June 24, 2012 at 10:40 pm:

      I guess you just listed the countries on your mind without thinking the food. Without the Turkish (Ottoman or Istanbul) cuisine in the top 3, this list is a piece of crap. You should better change the name of the list as what countries/nations I like more.

    10. Vijay Badhan says on July 27, 2012 at 12:21 am:

      Indian food is the best in the world. End of story. French and Italian food is very bland and just about presentation with no real bite to it.
      Indian cooking uses virtually every single spice and vegetable that we have in the World including all types of pulses such as Lentils. chick peas etc. And is filling and a proper meal,European cuisine is in my opinion no where near the best. I would say its a toss up between Indian and Chinese food as most of the world eats this on a regular basis judging by all the takeaways especially in the west.

    11. Jason says on August 5, 2012 at 9:21 am:

      I have had an Indian food the first time few weeks and it was delicious.. After Indian, i would go with the Italian authentic cuisine.

      1) Indian
      2) Italian
      3) THAI
      4) MEXICAN
      5) GREEK

    12. ElGreco says on August 12, 2012 at 8:26 pm:

      The Greek cuisine was influenced by the turkish? Really? is this some kind of a new history book that i am not aware of? what is Turkey? or wait.. Where is Turkey again? nothing is Turkish. they are a bunch of thief mongolians that have noting to show. no history, no nothing. so next time think twice.
      the Italian cuisine has influences from the Greek cuisine. just like the pizza. if you believe that the pizza is Italian, think twice again.

    13. daily wayne says on August 14, 2012 at 6:55 pm:

      i prefer Indian first, its soo diverse, and it can give you what ever you want. then Chinese. i think french and Italians are overrated.

    14. jalal says on August 17, 2012 at 10:04 pm:

      Hi,
      Since Moroccan cuisine is not on list, you need to know more about mediterrane cuisine first.

      pakistani cusine are the world best.
      second is chinese cusine. italian food are the worse.

    18. Ry says on August 24, 2012 at 7:21 am:

      I really believe Thai and Indian should make it closer to 1 on the list because of the shear talent it takes to blend such strong flavors between the curry powder, allspice, and cumin along with everything else that goes in the dishes.

    19. Alba says on September 9, 2012 at 5:24 pm:

      Italy the best of all time no other culture cooks so divine. And for those that only think Italians cook only pasta and pizza, you really don’t have much knowledge about the country. They have such a variety that makes France and Spain and all the rest look like kindergarten cuisine …lol there is from fish to good vegetable s and hundreds of cheeses not just mozzarella..which Americans think there is. The desserts lets not even compare…uuuuuuuu yea I’m getting soon hungry just thinking of it!!!

    20. Herns says on September 23, 2012 at 4:37 am:

      Those who say that mexican food are only burritos, nachos and guacamole are very wrong. Mexican food is World herintage by the UNESCO. And its not only spicy things. ¿Did you know that the chocolate is mexican?

      thank you for your nice post

    22. Super Chef says on December 8, 2012 at 12:21 am:

      This is my list:

      1. Italian : As everybody knows Italian pasta and pizza are very famous and delicious and many people around the world loves them as well as there are many Italian restaurant and gastronomy worldwide.

      2. Thai : In respect to Chinese and Indian, Thai cuisine is more diverse than Indian and Chinese. We have “Kaeng” or curry dishes as well as “stir fried” dishes with crispy vegetables. Seriously, who is going to eat smelly curry everyday like Indians? And who is going only eat stir fried dishes everyday like Chinese. But Thais have no problem since Thai cuisine offers both curry “kaeng” dishes and stir fry dishes. Please note that Thai curry is not the same as Indian curry. Thai curry is fresh curry with aromatic smell and it’s not stinky like Indian’s dried curry powder. Thai dishes tend to be more spicy than Indian and Chinese dishes because since Thais are very passionate with chillies and chilli paste.

      3. Chinese : In terms of popularity, Chinese cuisine could be more popular than Thai due to the fact that there are more Chinese migrants who opened Chinese restaurants abroad but that does not mean that Chinese cuisine is better than Thai cuisine. In other words, there are more Chinese restaurants than there are Thai restaurants maybe because China has the biggest population in the world and many of them moved abroad to open Chinese restaurant. However Chinese cuisine is not that bad but it is missing the curry dishes on its menu since Chinese cuisine is mainly based on stir fry dishes.

      4. Indian : Indian curry dishes has its unique taste and smell. I would eat them occasionally but not everyday of course. The problem with Indian cuisine is that they lack stir fried dishes and they kinda exaggerated with their dried curry powder to the point that they also included them in their ice cream. If I eat Indian dishes everyday then I could become stinky and I might have nausea too. However, not everybody like the smell of Indian curry because some people do not get used to and they might consider it as stinky and they will not enjoy Indian cuisine. Despite the strong smell, Tandoori chickens and Prawn Chingri curry are one of my favourites.

      5. Spanish : Like Italian and Greece, Spanish cuisine is considered as Mediterranean cuisine and it is very light, tasty and healthy. Paella is one of my favourites and I also enjoyed Spanish gastronomy food since it is very similar to Italian’s.

      6. Lebanese/Moroccan/Turkish/Greek/Tunisian : Couscous and Roasted Lamb ribs, Kebabs, Greek Lamb Gyros salad with Tzaziki are also my favourites.

      7. French : French cuisine is mainly about decorations and second dish or main course. Sometimes, I still love to eat meat served with pepper sauce or red wine sauce. But when going face to face with Italian cuisine, the French still loses because it is fatty or heavy since they use a lot of butter and the French cuisine also lack the first dish “primo piatto”. However, the French cuisine is good when it comes to desserts than Italian cuisine but seriously, who is going to eat dessert first when they feel hungry? I would rather go with Italian meal than a French dessert. The truth is that there is not really much to the French cuisine but the French chefs make an excuse to make it look more sofisticate by making a sauce to serve it on the meat dishes. That’s all to it.

      8. Japanese : The reason why I cannot take Japanese cuisine seriously is due to the fact that Japanese almost do not cook when they go inside their kitchen and this is because Japanese spends time eating slicing raw fish and eating them as sushi. However, I occasionally eat dishes at Japanese restaurants like Suki soup, sushi, sashimi and something like rice served with roasted eel with teriyaki sauce.

      9. Mexican : I cannot take Mexican cuisine seriously because Mexican dishes look more like party snacks than true artistic meal dishes. For instance, Tacos and Burridos look like party snacks. Seriously, how can you people see that as a good serious artistic cuisine? Whenever, I eat tacos served with cream and salsa at my Mexican friends’ birthday parties, I never feel full. It is almost nothing. Anyway, I will give it the 9th position on my list.

      10. Peruvian : Unfortunately, I never try the Peruvian cuisine but I heard many people said that it is good so I don’t want to leave it out off the list. Maybe it is good.

      The other great dishes that I ever tried but sadly, they would never be included in the list are Russian Beef Stroganoff, Hungarian Goulash, Irish Stout Beef Stew and Bulgarian Monastery Rice “Gyuvetch”. These are also great dishes that you must try even though, Russia, Hungary, Bulgaria and Ireland would never be include in the list.

    23. Alex says on January 4, 2013 at 10:12 pm:

      … Yes i am Peruvian 100% living in the states, but im not gonna sit here and be like oh yeaaa Peruvian cuisine is the best in the world or top 2 or 3, because it may not be there yet!, and i can recognize that. I will however educate a lot of you FOOLS about the cuisine and its recent recognition!. I don know what the proper characteristics are we judging the cuisine on, because tastes are a question of pallets. But Peruvian along with Mexican food are considered one of the most diversed in all of Latin America, there are SO many dishes in Peruvian cuisine, you would need to make an encyclopedia sized cookbook just to name them all. Peru’s cuisine is actually in the Guiness Book of World Records for its 492 different authentic dishes. This is not an opinion, it’s a FACT!. Peruvian cuisine is not like any other typical latin american cuisine, there aren’t any tortillas, nor rice and beans filled dishes, although there is 1 !. Influences of Chinese, Japanese, Italian, French and African cooking all make up Peruvian cuisine!. The dishes are highly flavorful with spices and chiles, chili peppers that you can’t even find anywhere else!.

      Peru is considered one of the world’s top megadiverse countries for its diversed ecosystem that allows different types of ingredients to grow ONLY in Peru and nowhere else because there many different climates!. there are about 3,800 different variety of potatoes only found in Peru, because that is where the potato was first discovered. 2,000 different types of fish whch ranks 1st in all of the world. There also is an abundance of tomatoes, peanuts, and chilli peppers as i’ve mentioned earlier.

      For those of you that say that it isn’t up there with amongst the best, tell me why then Peru won the award at the World Travel’s awards this past year and was crowned the World’s Leading Culinary Destination.!!??. a Peruvian chef also won for having the best cookbook at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards held annually in Paris!. at the world cup of Cuisines “Madrid-Fusion”, Peruvian cuisine finished 2nd only to France!!. Peru’s major annual food fair held in its capital city of Lima called “Mistura”, is the largest food fair held in ALL of Latin America, millions of tourists come to Lima to eat and try the flavors of Peru!. and the world renowned Culinary school “Cordon Bleu” in Peru is one of 2 (Mexico City being the other location) only Cordon Blue’s located in all of Latin America. So NOW YOU KNOW!. Peruvian cuisine is becoming more and more known but it is not YET very popular, and the only reason why it is not very popular is because there is not a big market for it, specially in the United States, because Peruvians don’t migrate to the states in millions like Chinese, Italians or Mexicans do. SO NOW YOU KNOW, AND HOPEFULLY YOU ALL HAVE LEARNED!.

      Sometime Indian food is too unhealthy, I will go with greek cuisine, it’s marvellous in my opinion. If you really care for your health then you won’t prefer Indian food, I am an Indian and I do not like Indian food because it’s really not good for your health if you compare it with other cuisines. Only the basic sabzi roti, dal chawal is good for your health, the food prepared using a lot of masala is totally fatal for our health. Try Vietnamese cuisine, especially their sticky cake, banh beo and their traditional pork cake, it’s usually served with fish sauce. Still I will say that they best bread in world is the Indian bread, which is naan. The food from Goa is too boring again, they can’t even prepare a decent fish curry, all the do is add tons of coconut milk into it. Punjabi food is the best in India.

    35. Jeffrey says on March 5, 2013 at 11:30 am:

      in my opinion the lebanese cuisine is the best in the world trust me because it’s much more delicious and healthier than the other cuisines
      1-lebanese cuisine
      2-italian cuisine
      3-Greek cuisine
      4-chinese cuisine
      5-japanese cuisine
      6-indian cuisine
      7-french cuisine
      8-mexican cuisine
      9-thai cuisine
      10-spanish cuisine
      11-turkish cuisine

    36. annony mous says on March 6, 2013 at 4:55 am:

      American food should be the best, includes: Italian (pizzas, pastas), French (French fries), German (Hamburgers), Mexican (Tacos and Texmex), Chinesse (sweet and sour chicken), Indian (Curry), Thai (Pad Thai) etc… American food is the best LOL

    37. annony mous says on March 6, 2013 at 5:27 am:

      I don’t understand how people go on and on about peruvian food being the best in the world, I’d like to try, but not very influential in my opinion because is not known, from the Latin Americas Mexican is the most influential, the aztects used Tomatoes or Xitomatl (nahuatl) way before other cuisines, chillies (from nahuatl too), Cocoa and the various uses of these ingredients. The conbination between the Aztecs and european influences made this cuisine one of the most varied and interesting foods and their influence have traveled around the world. i don’t understand why people that mention PERUVIAN food, don’t even acknoledge MEXICAN food in their lists?

    38. s.prabhu shankar says on March 9, 2013 at 9:56 pm:

      im indian and my comment may be viewed as biased.i love food and i have travelled and still continue to travell,i have tasted many cuisines out there,i have to say the best cuisine of the world has to be indian.indian cuisine has often been misunderstood as spicy,yes we have spicy foods,we have non spicy food too.INDIAN CUISINE is a well balanced diet and very healthy.Most of the indian food is prepared in a way to easily digest and keeping ones health in mind and adequate spices to make your taste buds begging for more.the variety of indian cuisine is without a doubt the largest,south indian,north indian,east indian,west indian.most of the western countries just know about punjabi and gujarathi cuisines.without a doubt indian cuisne is the best.my top five cuisines of the world would be(1)indian (2)italian(3)french(4)chinese(5)mexican.

      I’ve have travel a lot, so I can say none of those beat the
      “Puetorican” Cuisine as the Best world savory cuisine.
      And yes the World best Pitza is made in NY. Chicago & San Juan PR. Not in Italy…. And the best world Paella is made in NY, Cuba and San Juan Puerto Rico, not in Spain. Same with the beste Coffe. Puerto Rico, Cuba, Miami (Cuban sector), NY (Latin sector)
      This indiscutible!

      I disagree with the rankings!! I’ve tasted greek , Italian, French, Chinese and Japanese and don’t get me wrong, there all good but I would rank greek at least on the top three.

      Indian is one of the hardest to cook well, it’s complex and require lot of practice and skill. I m Indian and my Italian friends love my Italian cooking and my Chinese friends like my Chinese cooking. I always stuff up when I cook curry. I can never get the timing right. It’s so unscientific and instinctive that it requires lot of practice. If you over cook the spices or under cook the spices and get the sequence wrong your curry will taste bad.
      I always prefer to go to Chinese, Italian, Thai etc restaurant. But I prefer Indian for home cooked meal and of course it has to be cooked by someone who is good and has the skills and experience

      I do not understand why Italians and French are so stuck up to their many food rules. Also I found them very unsatisfying with their service and often rude with not much hospitality.

      It is absolutely baffling to me and I believe it has something to do with some kind of ignorant pride and narrow/closed mindedness of some Italians and French (I know this by experience because I have lived in Italy before).

      I am a Lebanese/Arab that has lived and worked in 4 different continents, and can say without a shadow of a doubt that the Arabic cuisine, including the Persian and Indian is far more superior than the Italian or French in terms of flavor, ingredients and variety. We Middle-eastern people truly believe that Italian cuisine (and the rest of the European cuisine) is poor…they are simply a poor people in terms of eating…they consider everything expensive, have no knowledge on or even access to complex herbs and spices. The only thing that makes Italian food good is the quality of their ingredients like veggies, fruit and bread due to their amazing highly volcanic mineralized soils and great Mediterrenian weather.

      Anyways my point is….if you would go to the best restaurants in the Arab world (Middle-east), anywhere from Morocco to Dubai and you wanted something crazy or disgusting like baked potatoes floating in a bowl of olive oil, no one would complain…they would just bring it to you. We are a people who are famed for hospitality and service! In Arab countries we never shun or look at people because they asked from something weird….the costumer gets what he wants end of story! This is why I am very baffled by this way of thinking in Italy and some other European countries.

      I am not here to make some kind of promotion….but I guaranty you that if you visit the Middle-east your taste buds will have multiple orgasms from the food that is available here and you will be served like the costumer you deserve to be!

      HELLOOO???? Moroccan should be number #1 on that list and shouldn’t be teamed up with all the arab countries. It is certainly on another level. Unique on it’s own in terms of variety, taste and flavor.
