It ‘s been noted and observed that as man’s civilization developed his method and ways of preparing food has beome more complex and more tasking.
Food has also played a big role in the formation of rituals and ceremonies that man has come up with either to please the gods or to entertaion guests. There are more than a thousand superstition and traditional procedures that are connected to food.

Some of the superstition connected to food is in the stage of preparing it. There are certain types of steps and procedures that involve the proper food preparation. Most of it sound absurd to some people but for every nation there is one kind of it.
Aside from superstition and eccentricities involved in the preparation of food there is also a notion that we call regional specialties or home grown food. Each country is known for one kind of food and that food is called a ?specialty.?
