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.


150 years ago you we were eating American beef raised in the Midwest, slaughtered in New York City, and shipped on ice to Britain. New York, at one time, lead the world in beef, beer, sugar, candy, bread and coffee production.

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.


Amen but I have to add Louisiana Cajun food.

I mean, you are talking to someone who has not a bone of Hispanic anywhere in her body who finds ways to "taco" everything, not just the truly Mexican stuff I make, because that's how my kid will eat it.

This household likely has a really screwed up recipe profile for anyone on the outside looking in.

Not me I was not alive 150 years ago.

And neither were my ancestors as they were Welsh miners and too poor to eat beef.

I think they just took it in turns to suck on the family pebble when in need of sustinance.

Cajun is one half of original Southern food, the other being Creole. New Orleans is one of the great food cities in the history of cuisine.

Well, if you weren't a pebble-sucker the likelihood was your Sunday roast started in the United States Midwest. The United States cattle industry made beef affordable for many people to the point that when visitors came here in the late 1800s they were astounded that even poor people ate meat multiple times a week.

I read a book about that a while ago as it happens.

The whole farming and meat packing industry thing and how it evolved made me think about going vegatarian.

I didn't do it mind but I did think about it until about dinnertime that evening.

American because it is a combination of every culture that has come here.

And I don't care if I'm cheating because I'm a Mason.

There's not enough bacon in a vegetarian's diet for me to convert.

I am not entirely comfortable with the ammount of bacon in a carnivores diet to be honest.

I never figured out if that was chicken cooked like a steak or steak cooked like chicken?

You are an odd bunch so it would not suprise me to find out it was actually fish.
