Cultural The food people serve for meals are influenced by their culture (everything about the way a group of people lives) which includes the beliefs, values and behaviors shared by the group.

Many Asian people settled along the Pacific Coast and contributed rice dishes and stir-fry cooking methods. Foods supplies are influenced by the demands of the area.
