Fusion Cooking

Fusion Cooking was a term that I was not very familiar with. I had heard it referenced in an old Learning Zone Express video titled The History of American Cuisine several years ago, but that was the extent of it.  However, it was recently brought up again in an email conversation I was having with Minnesota FACS teacher, Coleen K. Guhl who has supplied the majority of fusion cooking resources below that she has shared with me and/or uses with her students when studying regional foods and cuisine. So, a big “thank you” to Coleen for helping me learn more about this unique blending of regional and global cuisines!

Background Information

When I started reading up on fusion cooking, I found a lot of in-depth articles. However, because this would be used with high school students, I wanted to keep things fairly simple. So, below you will find a variety of resources to use as you put together your own unique unit, lesson or lab on fusion cooking.
