west means the place that’s being viewed, or the perspective that we think the audience has about a thing. In other words, the western perspective is the perspective that’s looking at the subject. In the context of food, the west is the perspective that we have about the subject. And that is good.
There’s a lot of food out there. In the west, there are no food products. So there’s not a lot of western food. However, there is western history. It’s interesting to note that the term “western” was originally used by a bunch of Europeans to describe the people that lived in the west.
