One country or culture's food for the rest of your life and nothing to eat that is not traditionally part of that cuisine?


Southern.

Homemade buttermilk biscuits and gravy, more of those biscuits with sorghum molasses, pickled bologna, deviled eggs, fried chicken, pecan pie, fried catfish, beer hush puppies, fried green tomatoes, ham and beans with homemade cornbread and fried potatoes, with a few slices of fresh garden tomato on the side, pit barbecue mutton or pork...........

Been eatin' like that all my life. No way in Hell I'm givin' it up now.

That really is a tough one because I can't decide between French, Spanish or Portuguese (and possibly a bit of Scottish - I do LOVE a good haggis, neeps and tatties)...........hmmmmm...... might have to pick French, even though I would miss out on the other tasty dishes I love from Spain and Portugal.

"Like what you did with Pizza" and "chinese" food.


American Chinese food owes its creation to the Japanese in San Francisco, including the fortune cookie, which is taken from a Japanese tea cookie and cannot be found in China.

Your going to have to define traditional last 50 years ... 100 150 2000 ?

If i choose Japan do I get sushi not around pre ww2 for the most part or anything made with flour

Italian can I have tomatoes brought over from the Americas about 200 years ago

Or almost all Asian/ME/med do I have to only eat rice grown there or if I choose India I'm basically stuck with basmati

Dose anyone get to eat corn except if I picked native American food

Dose the Pacific islanders count pre or post ww1 ... the way everyone eats on the islands change a lot at that time ... pig is not native to the islands

And what about hot sauce the pepper is also new world food

When i say traditional I normally mean 0 new world items unless it's a new world dish

Assuming the worst ima pick native American just so I can have new world items ... also do I get all of native American cooking or do I got a specify tribe to

corn, potato, tomato, bell pepper, chili pepper, vanilla, tobacco, beans, pumpkin, cassava root, avocado, peanut, pecan , cashew, pineapple, blueberry, sunflower, petunia, black-eyed susan, dahlia, marigold, quinine, wild rice, cacao (chocolate), gourds, and squash.

If it's on that list it's only traditional in native American cooking

Hmmm, I was going to go with Mexican, but Augustus makes a really good point. It may not always be authentic, but you can find darn near everything here in the US now if you look hard enough. Plus, we have fusion which creates endless variations of everything.

You Americans really are divided aren't you?

Even when you can choose the whole of American food you still have to pick your own particular part of it

I've been to "fusion" restaurants and they all seem like regular sushi places to me.

If you think Italian food sucks then you live a sad sad life. I'm sorry, I hope you can find happiness soon.

The US is as big as Europe. It stands to reason there are different cuisines to go with the regions. You have your own food in the UK and it's distinct from France, from Germany, from Spain, and each of those countries is maybe the size of a few of our states.

Southern.


The history of Southern food with its admixture of African/West Indian slave recipes, combined with French influence of the Acadians, is truly epic. It makes for an interesting tale on how many common Southern dishes came to be.

You're looking wrong. Not all of them are mixing in sushi.

We have some food trucks that roam KC that mix some interesting stuff.

Good point!

I would say that before 150 years ago with no real communication or travel we ate locally and from our own culture on the whole so anything after that needs to be a bastardised version far far removed from the origional.

So for British food we cannot have pasta like a good lasagne as it is Italian but we can have tinned spaghetti in tomato sauce on white bread toast as we took pasta and made it awful yet British.

A fair point.

The UK is made of 4 countries though and the food does differ but not to the point of say Poland and Portugal.
