nothing beats white-sauce italian food! yummy! i like japanese and mexican too.
Where's the option for Scottish food? I need my haggis!
I am also Chinese. And I agree with you, that is mean.
Anyway, Chinese food is my favorite, followed by Japanese then Italian.
Indian food is my favorite
I sorry that that I attatched British food with German food, but I really didn't think anybody would really care for them. (no offense to anybody).
I love Thai and Indian food, because it tastes good and is really healthy. Chinese food really is crap compared to them because of the way we have Americanized it with all this bread and starch.
Japanese food is also really good. But I am italian and I love to eat a good bowl of spaghetti sometimes. Greek is also one of my favorite foods too.
Blackhalo14-There are about 1 billion chinese in the world today, if you make fun of them you are insulting a lot of people.
Barbeque, nothing beats a good steak or rack of ribs or biskit sandwhich.
German food is number #1
Italian food rulz!
Yeah, Pizza is great
Heh, and German... Ich liebe auch eine gute deutsche Wurst... or something...
you eat tea
What madness to group decent German food with English food, which is, as everybody except the English knows, the worst in the world.
I like alot of different things and I frequently eat Italian, Greek, Turkish, Arabic, French, American and German food. Also the food that's sold as Chinese here, although from what I've heard that's not always authentic.
I don't like Seafood much, and I don't like some of the far eastern cuisine too much either.
Maori food (from New Zealand by the way ).
Nothing beats seafood like crayfish etc cooked in a traditional Hangi with kumara (sweet potato), meats and vegetables!
Italian is probably healthier, especially if you compare greek food in Greece with italian food in Italy. No offense to greek people, but in Italy the quality of food ingridients is probably the second most important thing after family.
Everyone has full understanding if you visit three different markets just to buy a single onion.
I'll go for...
a)A garlic nan donner with Lager.
b)A vinderloo with rice and chips with Lager.
c)Beef sunday dinner with a cup of Earl Grey.
In my mind it is a four way tie for first: French, Italian, Chinese and Mexican. For what it is worth, I have been a professional cook and chef for twelve years. Most culinary professionals in the US consider these to be the four "mother cuisines". Other cuisines tend to take local ingredients and plug them into the techniques of these four. Obviously this is a gross generalization and there are MANY exceptions (Indian cooking comes to mind), but most people would be amazed at how much this is true. For example, it would be impossible to cook a good hamburger without French technique, we just don't recognize it as French technique. Practically every restaurant in the western world is organized along the lines pioneered by Escoffier in Paris in the early 20th century (the brigade system).
