    Thai, Korean, Italian, Mexican or Kiwi

    So I can say, should we eat Thai tonight or maybe Indian, Mexican or even Korean, but i am not going to say letís go out for a kiwi meal ...5555

    Jay asked what our food taste was, or flavour.. and it got me thinking about the whole food history, how certain countries have world known crusines... and then why the kiwis and Australians to a certain degree donít have a certain food thatís regarded as a crusine...

    Our influence is obviously English, so maybe thatís the problem, you arenít going to traveling in some country and say, hey letís go to a English restaurant tonight ...

    We can eat American, itís called Macdonalds or KFC ..555. Maybe a hotdog ... so this makes me think economics has played apart in how certain countries have developed better crusines around the importance placed on food in poorer countries ... we all nknow how important food is to Thai girls

    Long histories also comes into it, survival by food as well, even hiding rancid meat by spices

    Then you have Europen countries, French Greek etc all have there own well known foods

    I guess the English and Americans just suck at food for what ever reasons and this has filtered down to Aus and NZ... anyone for a Meat Pie and tomatoe sauce ? 5555

    Anyone have any idea why we suck so bad at food ? Or are we that bad .... is your country bad too ?

    You never had a Full English for Breakfast then? ..55

    I guess you have things like Beef Wellington, Cottage Pie, Shepherds Pie, Steak & Kidney Pie, Bangers & Mash, Cornish Pasties, Yorkshire Roast, Fish & Chips, Chicken Tikka Masala ... 55

    ^^ 555. Yeah right I am in travelling the world, and in small town and what’s my chances of going out to dinner for a cottage pie compared to finding a Indian or Thai restaurant ?

    I have had some of those in Thailand... and around Europe... even in Romania!.. 55

    But I agree.. English cuisine is pretty much of non-English origin.... much like the people!

    The French call the English , Le Roast Boeuf , so I assume that is the national dish we are known for .. or any roasts

    Aussies I associate with BBQs ( specifically prawns ... )

    New Zealand it would be lamb I guess ... but not sure if that's just eating it ....

    ^^ look at a map and you will see the answer...
    All the great cuisines in the world are where it's hot and humid, where food will rot in hours rather than days..
    The great cooking techniques are simply ways to prevent food from rotting too quickly.

    The northern countries in Europe have no great cuisines, because it was too easy to preserve food..

    Americans suck at food?
    Have you ever been to a restaurant in the US?
    The US has the best steakhouses in the world, it has incredible seafood restaurants, fantastic bistros

    Why couldn't I say steak?
    We have the best steakhouses in the world which pretty much sits atop the food chain

    It's like don't say spaghetti for Italy

    Yeah I don't think of steak as originating from America like spaghetti or pizza from Italy... but there must be a dish that is unequivocally American?

    Didn't even know what that was.. Apart from Apple Pie, a Hotdog or a Hamburger comes to mind... though probably find the Germans involved somewhere... 55.

    Cajun cooking I think is uniquely North American

    There is a lot of local foods that aren't even well known in other parts if the country and they are 100% American but foreigners would definitely not know of them

    There are 4 in Boston that most people wouldn't even know about but are local favorites

    Lobster rolls (they've now gone national)
    Steak tips
    Steamers
    Fried clams

    Then thinking of toasted raviolis in St Louis

    And although I don't particularly care for it, I'd say BBQ is distinctly American
