Food

The post was partly inspired by my having seen the trailer for Ratatouille the other day, and partly from a real need...

I was wondering if people here could help me translate the word 'food' into as many languages as possible.

I'd be interested to know if there are any problems with finding a suitable translation that covers the same semantic domains as the English word e.g. to translate 'food' into xxx language, do I need to know if I'm talking about haute cuisine or basic staples, am if I am referring to meat as opposed to vegetables?

Thanks. :-)
