Far East food is not a monolithic phenomenon.
For example, Chinese cuisine has long been associated with the west but also with the Philippines, where a significant portion of the population still subsists on the meat of slaughtered pigs, chickens, and other animals that have been raised in captivity for generations.
The Philippines is a prime example of a nation where the indigenous culture is still closely associated with its cuisine and food.
But the Filipino cuisine is also a blend of the more exotic dishes found in the Asian countries of Korea and Japan.
Far Eastern cooking, like Asian cooking, can be both more or less homogenised, depending on the region and its cuisine.
Here is a look at the most popular dishes in the Far Eastern culinary sphere.
What’s the story behind the name Far East?
The term Far East derives from the Arabic word for the sea, or “al-bayd”.
The word “Far East” derives from a Chinese word for “land of the sea”, which also meant the lands of the ocean.
The word ‘Far East’ has a number of different meanings depending on where you look.
In English, the word is used to refer to any part of the world, but the Japanese word is often used to describe a region of the globe, like China or India.
But “East” also refers to the whole of Asia, or the entire continent of the Middle East and North Africa, or, more generally, the entire Mediterranean basin.
This has led some to use the term “East Asian” to refer not only to the region of China, but also to all parts of the Indian subcontinent and all of Africa, from the Sahel to Africa.
Other popular names for the region include the “East Indies”, “East Asia”, “Eastern Europe”, “Northern Africa”, and “Middle East”.
How did the Far Far East come about?
There are a number theories as to why the name “Far Far East” was coined.
The most popular is that the phrase originated from the fact that Far East was the name given to a large area of China during the Tang dynasty (618-907), the first period of Chinese history, and that the name was inspired by the cuisine of the East.
The name was popularised by the Chinese writer Li Jingwei, who, in his poem “Far Eastern Food”, wrote about the cuisine and culture of the region: “The Far Far-East is the land of the fishes and fish dishes, where the Chinese eat their fish and eat their meats, and their fish is a delicacy of the Chinese.
The Far-Far-East has a rich cuisine, with a wide range of food, many fish dishes.”
According to this theory, the name may have come from the cuisine, as Chinese food is considered to be the most authentic cuisine in the world.
The second theory is that it was a nod to a famous Chinese cookbook, the “Kitchen of the Three Kingdoms” (頭華知演終陆菊經), which is believed to have been written by the fourth emperor of China (武王), Qin Shi Huang, in the 14th century.
In the book, which was published in the 13th century, Qin describes the dishes and food of China and the Far-lands.
He describes a variety of regional cuisines and how they were served in the dishes of the great cities, such as the Qin city of Shu, or Nanjing, in southern China.
He also describes how the cuisine was exported to the Farlands, including India, Burma, and Indonesia.
The third theory is more recent.
In his book, the author, James MacGregor, describes how he came up with the name.
He is quoted as saying: “I was in my early 20s when I came across a collection of recipes in an old Chinese book called the Kitchen of Three Kingdoms (非常西漴綿) by Li Jingjiang.
I read the recipes, and I was intrigued.
I knew there was a cookbook that had been written in the 16th century and I wondered how it had survived in China.
I had always thought that it had been lost somewhere.
I didn’t know what had become of the recipes in the book.
The book had been passed down through the generations.
I thought, what if I found out where the recipes had come from?
I had to find out, so I went to the library in the city of Hubei, in southwest China, to search for the recipes.
The recipes had been there for hundreds of years and I began to search.
I discovered there was an ancient recipe in a book that had not been published in China in almost 400 years.”
So MacGregore and his colleague were determined to find the recipes and bring them to light.
They went to Nanjing to ask for the recipe, which had been hidden
