Wasn't it named in honor of the German city of Hamburg?

yes, and of course hot dogs, formerly/less commonly known as frankfurters come from frankfurt. pasta is italian [not], and kennedy called himself a donut infront of the berliners. not too sure if hamburgers are a form of honoring a city [cheesy attempt at flattery......no food related pun intended  Big thumbs up].

i could be wrong though. i do know that sandwhich comes from the earl/duke/whatever of sandwhich. got that much out of global history last year.

I'm not sure. I'm still trying to figure out who the Whopper was named after.

Uh, and the real cause why I moved from Hamburg to Berlin was of course, that I was afraid obese Americans would sooner or later sue Hamburgers for their loss of health.

Ahem, you are welcome ...

Well yes, he did. But AFAIK, people from Berlin call those donuts "Pfannkuchen" (pancakes), whereas most of Germany calls them "Berliner".  Nuts So the people he spoke to were pretty much the only ones who wouldn't have laughed!  Laugh out loud

Before WWII the hotdog was referred to as "frankfurter" in the United States. During the War Americans renamed the frankfurter to hotdog and so it remains hotdog to this day.

Sorry, techrep. Not quite. The word "hot dog" was being used fairly widely before the Second World War, in both popular culture and literature. O. Henry, for instance used the term as far back as 1908.

Actually, from my understanding, pasta, or at least spaghetti, was invented by the Chinese/Asians. The only reason Italy got it was when Marco Polo got back from his travels, he brought the Chinese Noodles back with him...



Shut up and calculate.

That wasn't Tagliatelle, though, so it doesn't count in my book.  Smile
