Primarily from Southern Europe, Mediterranean cuisine represents the foods and methods of preparation by people living in the Mediterranean Basin.

Mediterrano cuisine is a fusion of those countries food stuffs and spices.

Some cookbook writers have defined the three core elements of the cuisine as the olive, wheat, and the grape, yielding olive oil, bread and pasta, and wine, respectively.

Mediterranean cuisine, or the Mediterrano fusion menu, is not to be confused with the Mediterranean diet, although many of the items used provide the health benefits of a diet rich in olive oil, wheat and other grains, fruits, and vegetables.
