    Default "ethnic" foods or "cultural" foods you enjoy

    DH is german so we tend to eat alot of german and european dishes...

    Sauerbraten
    Schnitzel
    Bratwursts (from a german deli...not the kind from regular stores)
    Brotchen (by the truckfull it seems)
    Rouladen


    and so on.

    Do you have any of culturally specific dishes you eat because it's part of your heritage or background?

    I love Indian food even though it's not my cultural background!

    Oops, I didn't read the complete post. In my culture I love all the mexican food and it's very cheap and fast to make. DH is a good old boy from KY. He loves his southern food.

    My husband is Italian, and I love to cook for him and FIL. I learned to make Panettone (Italian Christmas bread) and give it to FIL each holiday season. He was so thrilled when I first presented him with some and looks forward to it all year long.

    My own heritage is very mixed with German, French, Czech, Austrian, Hungarian, and Russian all part of the mix. I do make some dishes from each of these ethnicities, but I do prefer Italian!

    I love to experiment with the "peasant" dishes of most cuisines. I find lots of delicious, frugal meal ideas by doing so. It seems that just about every country has their version of bean dishes and noodle and/or rice dishes and the different kinds of soups to use up leftovers or stretch ingredients.

    I guess we make quite a bit of french canadian food, like poutine or tourtiere. pizza is another really big one, although I think that is a regional thing more so than cultural. We grew up in a city that is predominantly Italian, so we were always having spaghetti and meatballs, pizza, gnocchi, ravioli, etc.

    I love chinese food, and the less spicy mexican foods. I also love Cajun and Creole foods, but have to cook them at home to keep them from being too spicy. I love Caribbean foods too, but again, not too spicy. I found a mild caribbean jerk recipe that I love!

    Not a big fan of Italian, except for spaghetti, scampis and alfredos. I don't like a lot of tomato sauce on my food.

    I like Chinese, Mexican (since moving to California, I know what REAL Mexican food is), and Italian foods. However while living in Scotland, I learned to love some foods/dished from there.....you can't beat fish and chips from Scotland, as well as some of the cheeses and sausages!

    I'm also from the South, so I LOVE Southern food....especially my Mom's. I'm also Irish, so good hearty stews and of course, corned beef are in order from time to time!

    I'd love to try new foods, but BF isn't adventurous.

    My husband's mom is from Germany so we eat a lot of schnitzel and bratwurst. I haven't made Sauerbraten in forever though. I'll have to do that soon.

    My mom was Swedish, so we always did scandinavian Christmas cookies every year - Krom Kakor, Pepperkakor, Fattigman.

    Hmm, my name is irish - I like oatmeal!
    I spoke spanish before english - I like almost all border-mexican foods. My maternal gp was Alsatian (French-German border) and I like french cheeses and german meats. But then I also like persian, afghanistan, indian, chinese, vietnamese, italian, swedish, and polish foods - in fact, I can't think of any general kind of food that I do NOT like. Bring it on!

    My paternal grandparents immigrated from Germany, so I do those too:

    fried noodles
    German sugar cookies at Christmas
    etc.
