|Since prehistoric times, the sun-blessed Greek land generously offered its fortunate inhabitants an exceptionally good quality of produce, so that they could develop the nutritional need of the human body into a sensitive science and art. Gastronomy, one of the most significant manifestations of an entropic and ephemeral applied art, characterizes the ancient cultures of the great civilizations. Hence the French cuisine is a natural evolution, developing through the years from the roots of the ancient Roman gastronomy; whereas the Chinese equivalent has its roots in the old Chinese Empire. But in both cases, the historic events and contacts with other nations and cultures enriched and widened the original gastronomic experience.
