By World Food Travel Association

The United States is home to a diversity of heritages, ancestries and upbringings and is often considered a cultural “salad bowl”.

This concept may seem strange to those not familiar with the idea of many cultures mixing together yet remaining distinct from one another, like the ingredients in a salad. Differing cultures complement one another rather than blending and homogenizing, creating unique traditions and flavors for each area.

Multiculturalism is characteristic of the United States in traditions, customs and perhaps most obviously in our cuisine.

To describe American cuisine in a few words is nearly impossible because the different cuisines and traditions are equally important to our nation’s cultural food heritage.

“The United States of Flavor” is a brief guide to just a few of the many culinary wonders that await you from coast to coast.

It is impossible to catalog all the great food and drink experiences in just a few pages so please do not look at this guide as the final list of all food and drink experiences in the USA. Use this guide for inspiration and a “not-to-miss” checklist of some of our best. Journey with us through the United States of Flavor and explore the differences that paint a picture of our unique flavors.
