    Hi NimaStriker,

    There's nothing necessarily wrong with the sentence as it is written (other than the typo Southerm Southern European). For purposes of comparison, one may string along a group of different things (in this case cuisines) just as this sentence does. One could also have written:
    The combination of rice and legumes characterizes cuisines from Cajun to Mexican, from Middle Eastern to Southern European.
    There is the nuance here of implying an influence of Cajun on Mexican (cuisine), and in parallel, Middle Eastern on Southern European (cuisine).

    Take you pick. Both work equally well -- with slightly differing meanings.
