I do not approve of the conversation shift to olives. Not even a little bit. I don't think even maple syrup could make olives edible.

I do not like either maple syrup or olives. Does this make me a communist?

On a slightly related note, vodka does make olives edible.

I would get annoyed by someone insulting British food, but I can't as I'm one of the fussiest eaters ever. And also I can't take such an insult seriously from a nation whose contribution to the gourmet world is the hamburger (or the pizza). You should be more impressed by us Brits and our national dish of Curry :P

This represents a fundamental lack of knowledge concerning American food. I could write volumes of books on uniquely American food. Everything from Californian cuisine, to Creole cuisine; from Hawaiian to Soul food. You can make fun of American food's lack of culinary depth all you like, but you'd completely wrong.

Time to post this again.

Curry is a multitude of Indian dishes that were just adapted into British cuisine dude. The word curry is an English word derived from the Tamil word Kari I'll give you that but as for Curry being a kind of British dish (I say kind of because many different kinds of dishes can be defined as a currry) you are very mistaken.

I'm suprised kenzo never picked up on this. You are slacking today kenzo.

This talk of curry makes me want a nice spicy chicken vindaloo now.

The razz-face implied that he was admitting that British food isn't very notable or unique. So I didn't comment on it.

I had a bunch of curry about half a week ago and it was delicious. Spicy Indian curries are delicious, but it's not a food I can eat unlimited amounts of. But Thai curries? God, I need some of that NOW.

Pardon my intrusion, but isn't America a country of immigrants? Therefore, our cuisine is a culmination/adaptation of the foods and cooking from all the countries that came here. In essence, we wouldn't have American cuisine without the contribution of other countries.

You can trace most foods in most places back to a foreign origin. But after a certain point and duration of time, the changes locals make to the cuisines become something else entirely. I mean, even though pasta came from China, and tomatoes came from the New World, you wouldn't call spaghetti Chinese, or American, or Chinese-American fusion food, right? It's Italian. Likewise, even though chowders came from Europe, there's nothing like New England clam chowder. And like I mentioned earlier, there's nothing in the world like say, Soul food, or Californian cuisine, which are entirely American.

I'm stepping out of the house momentarily to go pick up some Thai curry from this joint around the block. It's gonna be so fucking good!

Also, curry chips are gross.

Compared to actual curry yes I prefer curry to curry chips although I will say I've had some pretty good ones here.Loblaws President's Choice brand actually has a bunch of awesome unique flavours of potato chips Sour Cream and Dill is my favourite followed by Tandoori Masala. (they say Chicken but really it's just the spice mixture)

What is gross though is poutine flavoured chips even though poutine is amazing. Really anyone buying those should just go buy or make poutine instead.

Spaghetti also uses wheat noodles so you should also consider it Turkish since that is where wheat was first domesticated.

What about Mexican-American food not all of that is adapted from Spanish food some of that is from the native Mesoamericans. Same goes for food that the First Nations created up here (just instead you are subbing in French or English for Spanish) like maple syrup. It all comes back to maple syrup.

I'm finicky about corn. It needs to be fresh, of a particular variety, and prepared right. I refuse to eat canned or frozen corn.

But it's remarkably acceptable to serve frozen or canned corn, or to use those as an ingredient in cooking.

But it's not, really. Fresh corn is incredibly cheap. It's a convenience factor. You don't have to boil or roast a can of corn for a dozen or so minutes in order for it to be edible. And you don't have to saw a bunch of canned corn off a cob either in order to put it into a dish.
