I would choose Mediterranean for my health-hard to find good olive oil restaurants here in the US. Live in the southern US-hate the food here.

My luxury/dream if any kind of food would be French-with all the sauces-but not snails.

Have eaten Eastern foods in Japan, China, Vietnam etc.-well, didn't eat-and lost weight-so, good if you want to lose weight-disgusting.

Mac and cheese and hamburgers are definitely american cuisine.


Sure, because the "americans" invented noodles, cheese and Hamburgers. I guess the only recipe the americans ever invented was to put tons of sugar and tons of fat on almost everything you eat.

Noodles are from the chinese, cheese goes even back to the stone ages.

Hamburgers are buns with a meatball, coming, oh wonder, from Hamburg/Germany. You just put some sugar in form of ketchup to it. Your loved fries are from belgium, even if you call them falsely "french" fries. But hey, belgium is a nice city anyway and germany is a dirthole if a terror attack happens in paris...


Sorry, but a nation of some very few hundreds of years, without a own culture, can´t have a own culture of cooking.
All you cook is copied from meals from all around the world. You did maybe some silly things like making holes in buns and call them bagels. A bun with a hole in the middle, what a crap. Or you took Berliner, made a whole in it(and removing the jam in the middle) and call them donuts. Why do you need holes in your food? Should it look like the food got shot?

And that fat and sugar thing, eating way too much of it, cooking with way too much of it, that is maybe what you can call "american cuisine". Putting sugar and fat to all recipes from all over the world, and mix everything up(you call it fusion food, don´t you?).

I am sorry, but it is as it is.

Best part is we didn't have to steal it, it was willingly brought here by people who wanted to come here more than they wanted to live there.

Chinese.

Some of the tastiest food I have ever had was Chinese.
It's healthy,and covers quite a broad selection.

But that is just my opinion/taste preference.

The only problem I would have is that I love beef, and they don't use a lot of it.

Oh, but fish sauce is so useful especially in marinades.

If you brush steak with fish sauce and then wrap in kitchen paper and refridgerate for 48 hours and then rince and dry it tastes like it has been aged a lot longer and gives the umami flavour of well aged beef.

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.


For me as well...ALL Southern cooking. With a heavy influence on Cajun cooking.


Cajun cuisine (French: Cuisine cadienne, [kɥizin kadʒæ̃n]) is a style of cooking named for the French-speaking Acadian people deported by the British from Acadia in Canada to the Acadiana region of Louisiana. It is what could be called a rustic cuisine; locally available ingredients predominate and preparation is simple.

An authentic Cajun meal is usually a three-pot affair, with one pot dedicated to the main dish, one dedicated to steamed rice, special made sausages, or some seafood dish, and the third containing whatever vegetable is plentiful or available. Shrimp and pork sausage are staple meats used in a variety of dishes.

The aromatic vegetables green bell pepper (poivron), onion, and celery are called the holy trinity by Cajun chefs in Cajun and Louisiana Creole cuisines. Roughly diced and combined in cooking, the method is similar to the use of the mirepoix in traditional French cuisine which blends roughly diced onion, celery and carrot.

Characteristic aromatics for the Creole version may also include parsley, bay leaf, green onions, dried cayenne pepper, and dried black pepper.


I grew up eating this almost dauly...cant beat a good jambalaya or gumbo. Unless of course you top it with some boiled crayfish...
