    Default Favourite Cuisine

    If you had to, which style, culture or country’s cuisine would you live on for the rest of your days and why?

    For me, Italian or Indian but just for its variety and deliciousness I’d pick Italian.

    I could never pick...this is a tortuous question. Either Italian, American South, Japanese, or Mexican.

    My homemade spinach lasagna, homemade tomato basil sauce, big salad, roasted vegetables and homemade garlic bread with the big pieces of garlic. I mix fresh garlic with garlic powder in a bowl with butter and olive oil and spread it all over.

    I roll mine so each person gets their own neat portion.

    @ czb
    ^I love Pakistani food...I know it's a subtle difference (to me) between that and Indian food, but I love all of it. I'm kind of a spice wimp so I don't eat the stuff that will blow your head off. I wish I could, but my tastebuds don't agree.

    I realized I never said why I picked my choices.

    Italian food because it has everything - pasta, seafood, cheese. I'm usually pretty polite but I told someone their face once that I thought they were flat out weird and something was wrong with them for not liking Italian food. I just can't relate to that. Even/especially the healthy stuff.

    Southern American cuisine because I feel like it's underrated and it incorporates cooking from a ton of different cultures and also because fried chicken is manna. But there is so much more to it than fried chicken and barbecue. It takes a lot of very cheap and readily available foods and elevates them to something divine that you can dress up or down. And then there's just Cajun food by itself and I could easily live on that, too. It's not all fried junk food...it's just hardy.

    Japanese food because it's amazing, it's full of seafood, it's beautiful to look at, and I feel like even the deep fried choices are "healthier" and lighter than other stuff. Desserts are less sweet. And you feel less guilt for fried food and carbs because it's pretty balanced as long as you eat the ten bazillion veggies you can get with it. Also because sushi.

    Mexican food probably for the same reasons I love American food - it's more versatile than Taco Hell will have you believe - but also because I crave chilies and jalapenos often. Honestly, I probably crave Mexican food the most - the smell of the corn tortillas, the spices...must stop talking about it now.




    @ Chalet - that looks so good! I make something like that...spinach pinwheel something or other, but it's basically rolled up lasagna with spinach in it.

    ^ Yeah, that's all it is. I saw it in a pasta ad I think. Even though I don't eat chicken anymore, I'd definitely have to say Indian Chicken Tikka Masala. I'm so glad I learned to use indian spices, now I put them in my vegetarian dishes.

    Italian - I love pasta, cheese and garlic. British - just because it is pure comfort food.

    I'm with Shellee...I love Italian and Mexican with a passion. I could swap them up daily forever. I'd weigh a million pounds, but I'd die happy.

    that is a great idea Chalet! I’m going to try that once I’m back on “real food”.

    I do think that there is nothing like a roast chicken with crispy skin, gravy and Yorkshire puds with lots of al cente green veg. I think that is one of my favourite meals.
    The middle European “winter” foods, goulash, dumplings, stews, soups, they are my comfort food.

    Italian. I love pasta pretty much anyway you make it. And such a variety of meats, vegetables, and sauces.

    I also love indian and persian. Basmati rice is heaven.

    And throw in in fried chicken and biscuits for good measure from the American south.
