Fusion food is trying to quite consciously fuse things that are sometimes quite contradictory, sometimes quite far apart, to see if they'd work.
Fusion cuisine combines elements of different culinary traditions. Cuisines of this type are not categorized according to any one particular cuisine style. It has played a part in innovations of many contemporary restaurant cuisines since the 1970s.
Regional fusion combines different cuisines of a region or sub-region into a single eating experience. Asian fusion restaurants, for example, combine the various cuisines of different Asian countries, not just one.
