As omnivores, humans exploit a wide range of potential plant and animal foods. Thus, developmental processes must act to ensure
that an individual is not restricted to a narrow range of foodstuffs by virtue of few preferences and strong aversions for
novel foods.1 Nevertheless, a cursory view of cultural differences in cuisine serves to show that not all of the potential foods available
to individuals within a culture are actually consumed. Individual experiences, which can be conceived as the mechanism by
which one absorbs culture, must serve to specify acceptable and preferred foods.
