Write a complete 2-4 pages research paper on the following instructions:
First, choose a food item or cuisine that interests you. Some will have more information available about them than others, so it’s worth doing some investigation before you settle on one. In general, any well known national cuisine will have adequate information available, as will widespread food items like hamburgers, pizza, and sushi.
Once you have selected your topic, you will then do research to see how each of the following geographic concepts affects or is related to your topic:
2. Cultural Landscape
4. Distance decay
Distance decay refers to the fact that influence and interaction between locations decreases as the distance between them increases. As such, it has a significant influence on how things change as they diffuse away from their point of origin.
Be sure to address these specific geographic terms and concepts. You should be detailed in your treatment of these concepts – for instance, you should explain both how and why your choice varies by region, and how and why it has been affected by distance decay. Remember that geography, as an academic discipline, seeks to explain why things vary from place to place, not just describe how they do.
You should include an introduction to the topic, a main body that covers how the four geographic concepts relate to your topic, a summary, conclusion, and reference list.
