The author notes that current scholarship seems to favor that cuisine cannot be described in this large a group, that cuisine can only be regional or local. In arguing that this is not so, the author investigates the meaning of cuisine, its genesis and its history. The author makes the case that despite the arbitrary political boundaries of a nation and the continual shift towards ethnic and cultural diversity within nations, national cuisine is a real and definable entity. The author notes that this does not mean, however, that nations have a national cuisine just by virtue of their existence; many nations have no national cuisine, and some have no definable cuisine at all, even at the regional or local level.
