Τhe word gourmet is from the French term for a wine broker or taste-vin employed by a wine dealer. Gourmet is a cultural idea associated with the culinary arts of fine food and drink, or haute cuisine, which is characterized by refined, even elaborate preparations and presentations of aesthetically balanced meals of several contrasting, often quite rich courses. Historically the ingredients used in the meal tended to be rare for the region making gourmet food more expensive in smaller servings.
When it comes to gourmet, there are also frequently cross-cultural interactions that introduce new ingredients, materials, and traditions.
