Good question! The word "cuisine" is French in origin, and refers to a style or method of cooking that is characteristic of a country or region. For example, "French cuisine" is a more formal way of saying "French-style cooking." Ex: My favorite cuisine is Japanese cuisine. Ex: I'm quite good at cooking Italian cuisine.
