Can anyone help me with some cuisine terms. A website, book, etc. might help. For example, I've been seeing the term "fusion" a lot as in Latin Fusion, Japanese Suchi & Fusion. Does this mean a blending of various foods? I thought that was eclectic. Also, we are trying to figure out the difference between American, New American & Americana. Other questions come to mind such as: what's the difference between soul food & home-style food. They seem exactly the same to me. Thanks in advance for any responses.
