The cuisine of The United States is a rich amalgamation of peoples, religions and cultures thanks to the immigrants from different parts of the world. They brought with them their local ingredients as well as cooking styles with them. Yet amidst all these varieties Chinese and Italian cuisines dominate.
During the 18th and 19th centuries, the Americans developed a number of new foods. What characterised the American cuisine is the adaptation of a fusion of multiple ethnic cooking styles. During this period food production and presentation became more industrialised.
