Re: Your country's traditional foods

I live in Nebraska. We have more cows than people here, so are well-known for steak. Mmmm.. Also, we have a lot of agriculture, so lots of veggies, especially corn, is very common. I'd say a meal representing Nebraska would be:

Steak or chicken, corn on the cob, baked or mashed potatoes (with lots of butter!), string green beans, and milk or beer to drink, depending on your age. Also, a dinner roll with butter. This, of course, is when Grandma goes all out! All of course, many and huge helpings, with Grandpa sleeping in his armchair, the older ladies washing dishes, and us younger girls drying at the end of it all. And then, we sleep.

Re: Your country's traditional foods

the traditional dish from my town (liverpool) is scouse, its a bit like irish stew, it consists of diced beef or lamb,carrots,potatos,onions and you can put a 'crust' on it, which is putting a pastrey 'lid' on it, a lot of people like to have it with pickled beetroot or pickled red cabbage, its one of my favorite meals along with corned beef hash (corned beef and potatos mashed together),fish and chips and sausage,mash and onion gravey.

all of these must be home made though because all scouse house wives have there own secret ways of make them

Re: Your country's traditional foods

My Australian heritage gives me an uncontrollable urge for anything that's been BBQ'd.

Re: Your country's traditional foods

Anything with potatoes in it. Seriously. What would we do if anything happened to the potatoes? oh wait yeah...
I suppose stew and coddel and full Irish breakfasts (which other countries try to copy but just do wrong because they try to make it healthy and take out all the fat) are stereotypical Irish foods which I actually eat.

Re: Your country's traditional foods

One of the common misconceptions about Mongolian cuisine is that Mongolian BBQ is what we eat. That is not at all true. I love Mongolian BBQ but it is not real Mongolian food. We dont have noodles or pork or half of the other stuff in Mongolian BBQ. Mongolian Beef on the other hand is really Mongolian. In Mongolia the diet is mainly composed of beef, fermented yak's milk and as gross as it sound horse blood is drunk a lot of places. Mostly beef though.

Re: Your country's traditional foods

In Scotland, stating the obvious- Haggis and Porridge! but we also have Shortbread, oatcakes, Cranachan(cran-a-kan) (which is raspberries, cream, honey, oatmeal and of course whisky), Stovies(meat and potaos mixed together)! we have loads, got a whole book on Scottish recipes! Its all hearty foods, which fill you up but is good for you (well some of the time I think the whole of Britian's foods are 'traditionally' like that, its what we call 'pub food'!

Re: Your country's traditional foods

The U.S. is too broad to have a single or just a few traditional foods so it would vary by region. Here on the west coast of Florida one of my favorite traditional foods would be stone crab claws which are in season from Oct-April only. Its humane as can be since during harvesting the claw is cut off and the crab released and it grows back within a year and since harvesting is strictly regulated, its illegal to cut off the claws of a pregnant female.

Anyway stone crab meat is sweet and delicious and IMO one of the best seafoods there is.


I'm just curious, do any of you Scots actually like haggis?

Re: Your country's traditional foods

Well, seeing as I live in the US, there are a LOT of traditional foods. I live in the southwest, so Mexican food is big. But I am German, so things like sausage and dumplings are traditional to my family.

Around here we're just really proud of our beef, so bbq's are a must.
I'm from Quebec and I was about to post poutine!

I currently live in the US, in Massachusetts and I'd say our traditional foods are things like lobster, asparagus and baked beans.

Just wanted an opinion. I'll try anything at least once before I state my opinion about it.

Re: Your country's traditional foods

In Cuba they eat black beans and rice, and fried plantains, and FLAN!
Also I like to cook ropas viejas which is shredded meat stuff (and translates to 'old clothes')
I don't actually live in Cuba though--my dad moved to escape Castro

Re: Your country's traditional foods

I live in the most multicultural part of Canada, so pretty much everything is traditional. But, sandwiches, maybe? Whatever. I love samosas from India. Vegetable samosas
