Food in Latin America
So “Latin American cuisine” really is a collection of different cuisines, rather than its own entity.
Apart from Bahia, tourism is seen as the means of rehabilitating the prime ancient districts. These ancient centers have been found to appeal greatly to the foreign tourists. The architectural designs of the region are the most notable of the all the other attractions. In other nations like Salvador, rehabilitation has brought about the issue of depopulation of the areas (Lumsdon and Swift, 2001). These areas were inhabited by the poor in the urban centers who finally ended up in the slum areas. In most cases, tourism is reckoned to be the means of improving the poor regions from the economic perspective. For many Third World nations, “an admired architectural heritage and culture are considered as an economic treasure and asset” (Gui, 2001). Tourism has had a large impact on the economy of many countries (Stonich, 2001). The impact of tourism on the economy of many Latin American nations is major. Tourism is the main foreign exchange earner that plays a fundamental role in the development of these nations.
Modern food is a blend of indigenous foods including beans with those by elsewhere in the world such as aubergines, now expanded widely in Central America. Travel is easier in modern times. One can possibly easily eat a meal in a foreign nation and then get the ingredients once home to reproduce that in one's own kitchen.
