Mediterranean cuisine is well-known throughout the world and is widely regarded as the healthiest cuisine in every way. Although it is regarded as a cuisine that encompasses all the Mediterranean Sea nations, it differs from one to the next, with many variants based on the culture and cuisine of each country. Mediterranean cuisine, also known as "sun cuisine," has been proven to be the healthiest and most balanced, thanks to the richness of its flavours and the use of very healthy ingredients. Because of its widespread popularity, UNESCO designated it as Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2013, acknowledging that it offers several health and lifestyle advantages. This cuisine has succeeded to incorporate many cultures into a single culinary style while retaining its distinct characteristics. They all have the same essence that distinguishes them from the rest of the world's kitchens, even though they use extremely diverse materials and methods. When we speak of Mediterranean food, we may refer to Italian, Spanish, Greek, Moroccan, French Proven├žal, or even North African cuisine, all of which are part of the same family yet distinct from one another.
