11. Once, food was defined by a very small geographic zone, prescribed by the products and traditions in that area.
Where there were wars, food was modified. Arabs conquered Europe; cane sugar went with them. The Chinese entered
Japan and the soybean entered the Japanese diet. Immigration left a mark, too. Jews fleeing Portugal brought chocolate to
southwestern France. African slaves brought frying and okra to the Caribbean and the American South. It seemed every
time a royal marriage was arranged in France, the cuisine gained a few ingredients and dishes. Modern historians question
the influence of Catherine de’ Medici when she arrived in Paris in 1533 at the age of 14, with an extensive Italian cooking
staff. The event probably did not revolutionize French cooking as is sometimes suggested, but it did bring the artichoke
north. And when Louis XVI married Marie Antoinette from Lorraine, sauerkraut became fashionable in Paris and
remained popular far longer than she did. 【題組】46 This passage is about.
