About This Quiz

Are you open to trying new dishes or do you prefer to stick with what you know? Can your stomach handle anything or is it a bit sensitive? Are you willing to cook an involved multi-step meal or do you prefer to go with basic recipes and simple ingredients? 

Our cooking and food preferences can say a lot about our favorite cuisines and who we are as people. From one place to the next, cultures and social norms as well as favorite ingredients and recipes can change drastically. The main takeaway is that food is as diverse and unique as people are, no matter where you are in the world. 

Within the U.S. alone, there are more than six different styles of cooking and cuisines. So it's easy to imagine just how varied the cuisines of the world might be. From Mexico to Japan and Australia to Iceland, there's no telling the number of cultures and cuisines influencing and shaping the people who live there. There are likely many cuisines we have yet to discover within the forests of the Amazon or the bushlands of Tanzania or the African savanna, and we'll match your personality to one of the world's most delicious and invaluable cuisines.
