Cuisine that is typical of many cultures worldwide either by virtue of obvious uses of local foodstuffs and similar preparation methods or through trade. Many dishes with different origins being approximations of flavor profiles that are common across many different cultures. These profiles that are desirable amongst the majority of humans are a result of food preferences being partially genetic in nature and can explain things such as the use of sweet and sour in many cuisines being paired together to overpower lower quality cuts of meat even though humans also commonly share a preference for sweet fruit over sour fruit.

World cuisine is distinct from Fusion cuisine which refers to the combination of foods and preparation methods of different regions or cuisines, for example Spam musubi.
