Regional cuisine can be defined as cuisine based upon global, national, state or local regions.[5] Regional cuisines may vary based upon food availability and trade, varying climates, cooking traditions and practices, and cultural differences.[6] One noteworthy definition is based upon traditional cuisine: "A traditional cuisine is a coherent tradition of food preparation that rises from the daily lives and kitchens of a people over an extended period of time in a specific region of a country, or a specific country, and which, when localized, has notable distinctions from the cuisine of the country as a whole."[6] Regional food preparation traditions, customs and ingredients often combine to create dishes unique to a particular region.[7] Regional cuisines are often named after the geographic areas or regions that they originate from.[6]
