  Strat's Place - Daniel Rogov - The Dubious Past of Fusion Cuisine
True cuisines are such that a scholar who understands a nation's history, geography, topography and sociology can describe that nation's cuisine by projection from this knowledge, just as a paleontologist can reconstruct the appearance of a dinosaur from a single bone.
Perhaps the silliest claim of those most deeply involved with fusion cuisine is that they and they alone are active in seeking out the freshest and best quality raw materials and preparing them in ways that will best highlight their natural flavors is exclusive to them.
Another reason to doubt that fusion cuisine is a genuine cuisine is in its very need for originality, each individual chef looking for his or her own individual expressions of just what "fusion" is about.

As nouvelle cuisine spread to other nations, it combined with elements of the foods of the host country.

That's why what has come to be known as fusion cuisine has had such a hard time: it's as close to invention in the kitchen as we usually get.

Modern Vietnamese cuisine is among the pioneer in fusion cuisine long before fusion was fashionable.
Modern Vietnamese cuisine is more than the fusion of East and West; it also reflects the diversity of the Vietnamese landscape -the fertile delta in the South with abundance of tropical produce, the rugged mountains in the Central, and the cooler climate of the North.
Vietnamese cuisine often used lemongrass, which has a distinct fragrance and taste and yet its effect is light and refined - similar to Vietnamese cuisine, which also has a unique taste often with an intense flavor and yet not overpowering.

The Tses, both in their 30s, have reinvented traditional Asian cuisine, using local ingredients and streamlined American techniques.

 Dining Review: Bikki: new haven for fusion cuisine
Indian cuisine uses more than two dozen spices -- what we know as "curry" is really a delicate balance of different combinations -- but sometimes, when East meets West in the kitchen, there's more confusion than fusion.
The fusion theme is carried into the desserts, again with mixed results.
The beautifully presented cardamom carrot cake ($5) with almond-saffron icing was an interesting new interpretation of a classic, but the enormous chocolate mousse ($6) flavored with garam masala -- generally a mix of cloves, cinnamon and peppercorns -- made me rebel.
