That could easily cover most of the regions between Xian and the Atlantic. 
For an hour, I would consider doing something like looking at Moorish food 
at the time of Tariq ibn Ziyad.  That would give you a period when there was 
an interesting collision of Berber, Arab and Visigoth cultures.  Then again, 
you might chose something easier to research, such as Food in the Travels of 
Ibn Battuta.
