I guess if you are in New York it’s a lot easier to eat foods from a very broad range of places.

I suppose that there is no country called Yiddish (except in Michael Chabon’s imagination).

Most of the above when I have the time and/or opportunity – at home, Jewish, English, Italian, Mexican, Indian and Chinese influence our cooking.

Most Mexican food is Americanized, so I don’t count that. And I grew up on my granny’s cooking; it’s hardly foreign. Plus, everything comes from another country, except native American traditional food.

I love Thai food and Japanese food. At least the Americanized versions.

Mexico- comes from my Texican roots! It’s hard to get away from old habbits, but in New Orleans I have been learning some Italian dishes…. This thread is making me hungry!

@ucme To answer your specific question; an Indian dish we have often at home is channa; a spicey chickpea and tomato dish.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Sashimi. Or bangers and mash. Or fish and chips. Or pollo rollatine (chicken rolled with prosciutto and mozzarella in a marsala wine and mushrooms sauce).

ucme's avatar

ooooooo Italian for me :-) never met a pasta I didn’t like but my special faves include cannelloni (beef is great but my personal yuuuuuummmm version is made with spinach and riccota) Macaroni cheese… homemade of course and I like to add garlic to my cheese sauce (add a bib and call me happy). So many beautiful sauces in Italian cooking!! enough to make a diet disappear never to be thought of again. I like to think I make a mean lasange if I say so myself lol. I love that there are millions of ways to cook without meat (but also just as many with of course) you can find some amazing vegetarian versions of old faves here and here I’m not entirely vegetarian yet but moving that way I think. How can I mention Italian food without mentioning pizza? Homemade though, with only your very favourite toppings. Better yet, make a few with tons of assorted toppings then grab a few friends, couple of great movies to watch, some beers, couple of nice bottles of vino or whatever you fancy and indulge. Wonderful!!
