Classic American cuisine?

Postby adrien35 » February 1st, 2015, 12:39 am

Okay, I'm looking for cuisine that is native to certain areas. You have New England Clam Chowder for New England, New York thin crust pizza for New York, Chicago has their deep dish pizza, Louisiana has tons of dishes like Gumbo, Texas for their BBQ. What other dishes are there native to a certain state or area? I know there is certain sandwiches and things like that. I'm looking for more classic dishes to introduce into my meal plans! Thanks!

You've got a good list going so far. Here's a few more to consider: *NYC -Hot pastrami sandwiches on rye bread -Lox, bagels & cream cheese -Street corner hotdogs *Maryland-Blue crabs *Louisville, KY-The Hot Brown Sandwich & the Derby Pie *New Mexico- "Stacked" enchiladas: the tortillas are left whole and stacked up like pancakes with cheese & lettuce and enchilada sauce on top of it. Also, New Mexico is famous for Green Chile...especially from the town of Hatch, New Mexico. *Washington (Pacific Northwest Region)-Salmon *San Francisco: -"Cioppino" (pronounced: Chop-ee-no) -a hearty seafood stew made from clams, fish, crab, shrimp, mussels all nestled in a bowl filled with a tomato based broth -Dungenous Crabs: Large hardshelled crabs -Sourdough Bread *Boston-Lobsters/Lobster roll (a lobster salad served in a soft bread roll)

America is really not that old to have "classic" anything let alone cuisine. From the 50s, the diner meat loaf & mashed potatoes was the standard or an open face hot beef sandwich. At home, it might have been a can of pork & beans and a can of peaches for dessert. Then the Swanson's TV dinner took over and became a standard with that bitsy 2 bites of dessert in the center. How about the Campbell's Tomato Soup of Andy Warhol fame? That is American cuisine. The Cheese Hamburger, The Hot Dog, the Philly Cheese Steak... that is all we have got. and then there is the state fair varieties.. Most of our favs are really borrowed or brought from the homeland of our ancestors and then embellished.

The Carolinas, Alabama, and other areas of the deep south are known for things like shrimp and grits. In addition to barbeque, Texas has Tex-Mex ("Mexican" food that isn't exactly traditionally Mexican). All of the South prides itself on dishes like fried chicken, fried catfish, chicken fried steak (we like to fry stuff lol) The midwest is known more for warm and hearty meat-on-your-bones meals like the standard meat and potatoes stuff. California tends to be cool and trendy: lots of salad creations come out of California. Southwestern flavors are known for spiciness similar to Tex-Mex.

Um, sorry to burst your bubble but pizza isn't exactly native to any part of the United States.

Americans are crazy about fast food. So I say a quarter pounder burger and fries
