Re: Your country's traditional foods

well the u.s. is known for junk food, like everyone mentioned, but thats not what most people eat. where i live mexican food is really popular, whether its home-cooked or at a restaurant. yesterday i had taco salad, with ranch dressing. mmmmmmm. tonight i'm having chicken tortilla casserole, it sounds kinda iffy to my, but everything my mom cooks turns out good, so i trust that it will be too.

BBQ!

With a slide o' potato salad and a cobbler or some kind. With a Coke or beer.

Or any one of the hundreds of the home grown Tex Mex places around here are good. You can get a whole meal for 3$. A good, hearty mexican food meal.

Re: Your country's traditional foods

Here in Ireland we have lots of nourishing food to keep us warm against the cold winters and summers!
Theres stew - a big thick soup of potatoes, vegetables and meat.


In Dublin you'll also have coddle which is a tomato type stew with boiled sausages and potatoes. Some people don't think it should have tomato in it but take no notice of em!

We also have lovely soda bread and bacon and cabbage.

If anybody wants to, have a look at St Patrick's Day recipes

Re: Your country's traditional foods

southern united states:

fried chicken, potato salad, coleslaw, barbeque (this is a different kind, for some that don't know... chopped pork --or beef, for texans-- with a vinegar base... tastes better than it sounds...) fried shrimp, jambalaya, chicken bog, chicken and dumplings, biscuits with gravy, grits, gumbo, okra, black eyed peas, corn on the cob, and sweet potatoes... and now I am really, really hungry.

Re: Your country's traditional foods

NewZealand:
The hangi or earth oven is the best known traditional form of cooking for Maori.
Hāngi (pronounced /hɑːŋi/) is a New Zealand Māori word for a method of cooking in an outdoor pit oven. It is done in New Zealand as an alternative to the barbecue, but often saved for special occasions due to the large amount of time and preparatory work involved.

To "lay a hāngi" or "put down a hāngi" involves digging a pit in the ground, heating stones in the pit with a large fire, placing wire baskets of food on top of the stones, and covering everything with earth for several hours before uncovering (or lifting) the hāngi. There are many variations and details that can be altered, but a hāngi produces rich, succulent food with a flavour quite unlike anything else.

Traditional hāngi food is pork, mutton or lamb, and chicken, with generous portions of root vegetables such as kumara (sweet potato), pumpkin, carrot, potato, onions and cabbage.

More info

We invented Pavlova too.

and chocolate fish!! marshmallow covered in chocolate and shaped like a fish - teachers give them as rewards for good work etc at most schools (like gold stars, but tastier).

Re: Your country's traditional foods

Well there is the traditional stew either made from lamb or beef. Boiled ham with cabbage and spuds uck and the traditional Ulster fry; sausage, bacon, egg, tomato, mushroom, black and white pudding and finally soda and potato bread. There is also my granda's favourite which is a potato apple potato bread with an apple filling. There is also a traditional dish for my family we call it dipper in. Its a watery sausage casserole in which you dip loadsa bread (has to be plain not the same with pan bread).

Re: Your country's traditional foods

USA Baby...

Breakfast - Sausage, Eggs, Bacon, Hashbrowns... For me its cornbread and syrup though whenever I can manage... Always drink your Barley Green, lol, its disgusting but I'm only 16 and it works wonders for me...

Lunch - During the summer when I'm working cows its a huge meal, with mashed potatoes and corn and a big slab of meat and a salad with some home-brewed tea. Dessert - Pecan Pie or pound cake. Any leftover cornbread from breakfast can be eaten with pinto beans as well.

Dinner - For me its a light dinner during my off months because my big meal is at lunch, maybe a few bites of sausage with a apple, banana, and an orange or someting. Cereal (Raisin Bran) always tastes good after a long days work.

P.S. - When you work outside all day and burn so many Calories, you usually have to eat like I suggest to keep your weight on. But I'm not complaining... I love some ol' fashioned BBQ when I can get it too.

Oh, ya, deer meat is the best thing EVER!

I live in America. *snort* The "traditional foods" here are McDonalds cheeseburgers and fries.

Re: Your country's traditional foods

I don't think the US really offers any quality food. Like hedwig_3180 said, there's really not much besides fries, hamburgers.... Unless you have a greater ethnity tie to a certain place, most americans live on food that they can get fast and easy.

Re: Your country's traditional foods

Just thought of another kiwi classic, well I just had some actually.

It's a lovely hot day today, so I wandered down to the dairy (er, corner shop, 7/11, co-op) to get an ice-cream - and i'm pretty sure i've never heard of anywhere else having "hokey pokey" flavoured icecream.

Hokey pokey is what we call the stuff inside a cadbury crunchie, I think in UK they call it 'honey comb', anyway, the icecream is kinda french vanilla flavoured, with small (pea sized) chunks innit.

There's an old story that 'back in the day' TipTop (who make icecream) had a cockroach problem, and when they sprayed the building, dead ones would fall from the rafters - into the icecream, so they started adding hokey pokey to explain the crunchy bits, I would not be at all suprised if this were true :P

Re: Your country's traditional foods

My mom's side of the family is Cajun so we have jambalya, etouffe, crawfish, red beans and rice, gumbo, and all sorts of variations on the same theme. Oh and tabasco sauce. Louisiana is the home of tabasco!
