I. The universe would be nothing were it not for life and all that lives must be fed. ~Brillat-Savarin, The physiology of taste Defining Cuisine ~ Terroir Gastronomic Identity Introduction to Classical Pairings Gastronomy

Gastronomy is the study of relationship between culture and food The Key Elements of The Gastronomic Identity Concept The concept of gastronomic identity illustrates the influences of the environment (geography and climate) and culture (history and ethnic influences) on prevailing taste components, textures and flavors in food and drink.

(Winter 2003): 4-5. Terroir (/twa/ French), Literally wa/ French), Literally the Soil. A sense of Place embodied in a wine. an umbrella term for a subtle interaction of natural factors and human skills that define the characteristics of each wine-growing area.

The Impact of Climate Zones On Wine Characteristics Climatic factors impact fruit ripeness, acidity levels, alcohol levels, tannin, and flavors. Cool Climate Zones Cool Regions: Often result in white wine flavors of apples and pears (cool climate tree fruits). Create red wine aromas and flavors

that can be described as red fruits like cranberries, red currants or red cherries. Warm Climate Zones Moderate Regions Result in flavors such as citrus, peaches, apricots, nectarines or melons for white wines black cherries, black currants, plums or blueberries for red wines. Warm Climate Zones Warm Regions: Results in white wines that have

tropical fruit flavors such as mangos, pineapple, papayas, guavas or bananas. Produce red wines that can take on flavors of dried and heavier fruits like raisins, figs or prunes. The Climate Climatologist recognize three levels of climate A Macroclimate is the overall climate of an

area The Rhine Valley or Walla Walla A Mesoclimate is the climate of a small area Typically an individual vineyard Ciel du Cheval A Microclimate is the climate that exists immediately within and around the grapevine canopy Heat Summation Units

Calculated as the total number of days when the average temperature is greater than 50 F (10 C). This is based on a 10-year average of temperatures If an average was 60 F (60 - 50 = 10), this would provide 10 degree days per day. The coldest regions are about 1,700 degree days and the warmest of 5,200 degree days

(calculated in Fahrenheit) . Degree-Day Equivalents in Celsius and Fahrenheit Region Celsius Heat Summation Units Fahrenheit Heat Summation Units

The Role of Appellations Refers to the location where agricultural products are grown. Sanctioned by a government or trade association to define procedures in order to guarantee quality and genuineness.

A wine appellation may be a large region or a single vineyard. Stated on a wine bottle label and refers to the specific geographic location. An example would be the official French system of appellation dorigine controle. New World vs. Old World New World:

Food to a large extent is what holds a society together and eating is closely linked to deep

spiritual experiences." Peter Farb and George Armelagos 'Consuming Passions: The Anthropology of Eating' Language (noun) - the speech of a country, region, or group of people, including its diction, syntax, and grammar Cuisine Cuisine (from French cuisine, meaning "cooking; culinary art; kitchen"; itself from Latin coquina, meaning the same; itself

from the Latin verb coquere, meaning "to cook") Literally whos cooking what in the kitchen What Makes food a Cuisine A cuisine is a specific set of cooking traditions and practices, often associated with a place of origin Heavily influenced by religious practices Trade and migratory patterns of humans

Changes in agriculture Commons issues Food: The Impact of Geography and Climate The items available in our environment affect flavor preferences, eating habits,

recipes and dining etiquette. Historically, food has been consumed near the place of production creation. The enjoyment of eating good food is dependent on cultural preferences for specific flavor profiles. Geography and climate also impact eating habits based on physiological characteristics. The Impact of Trade On Gastronomic Identity

Trade and immigration policies have had a substantial impact on cuisine, food products, flavors profiles and dining etiquette over the course of several centuries. The bartering of and commercial trading of food products between countries has developed over time. Travelers (of the past and modern day) contact with other people and regional gastronomy impacts gastronomic traditions.
