I’m no expert here, but my impression is that modern concepts of distinctive cuisines, like the major ones of the world, being American, Italian, Indian, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, those seem to be them, at least in the way that they’re usually known, are a relatively recent development & conception that formerly arose over the previous century or two, & that prior to that, there doesn’t seem to be as distinctive concepts of cuisines, that what & how people ate & cooked seems to have been more of a personal & informal matter, but not standardized as cuisines like contemporary times. Am I right here?
