Salad Nicoise - green salad with tuna, hard-boiled egg, anchovies, olives and green-beans

Daube Nicoise - pasta (normally cheese/spinach ravioli) with a beef and red-wine casserole sauce (mmmm)

Socca - flat-fried cornmeal served in thin slices with sauce.

Stuffed vegetables - tomatoes, courgettes, peppers, mushrooms stuffed with forcemeat or rice stuffing.

Pistou - a sort of regional variation on pesto, with olives and anchovies and LOTS of garlic - mmmmm.

From my home city we have "Fry Sauce", that no one else has, look it up on Wikipedia. That's the only original thing I can think of except maybe green jello with carrots.

From Cornwall (rather than the UK)

Cornish pastys
Clotted Cream (and cream teas)
Cornish Vanilla Ice cream
Clotted Cream fudge
Cornish Fairings (type of ginger biscuit)

the cornish clotted cream (made by roddas), has even been served to me on Air Canada as part of a cream tea, and used to be on TWA among others years ago. Don't know if any other airlines still use it.

Alaska has a lot of interesting food.

Reindeer sausage - great on pizza, or eaten like a hot dog
Moose meat - very popular, I'm partial to homemade moose jerky

Or for the more adventurous, try some Eskimo delicacies.
Eskimo ice cream - animal fat mixed with seal oil, berries, and sugar. It's better than it sounds.
Muktuk - whale blubber. It's quite chewy.
Dried fish dipped in seal oil - never tried it, but it you can smell it from a mile away

Cornish: have you flown on Air Southwest yet? They sell Ginsters sandwiches and sausage rolls, but oddly not pasties, onboard.

Haven't had the pleasure yet of Air Southwest. Tend to drive down to Cornwall rahter than take the plane (shame on me!). My mum uses them to come up and visit from time to time. However with your news of no on-board pasties, I shall be requesting she boycotts the airline with immediate effect

If you want a local, work day dish here in Boston, try Scrod.

Scrod is a young white fish, usually cod, that is dredged in butter and bread crumbs, then broiled for a few minutes. Nothing exotic, just good ol' New England comfort food.

In a few minutes, I am headed for Pioneer Courthouse Square to indulge in the bestest food in the Northwest: Shelly's Honkin' Huge Burritos with the fresh salsa! Y-U-M!!! If you are ever in Portland and have time, take any MAX line to the Square and get one. Trust me. They are vegitarian, but oh, so yummy!

Saturday Market starts this weekend. I can't wait because there is a food vendor there who sells clam chowder in sourdough bread bowls. I don't see breadbowls with soup, stew or chowder very often. I think that must be a Portland thing.

GO CANUCKS!!

Then there was the seafood-loving tourist in Boston, who asked at his hotel where he could get scrod.
He was complimented on his use of the subjunctive tense  Cool

Hmmm, now let me think, what do we have in London? Jellied eels, pie, mash and liquor - and for the American readers, that's a green gravy rather than alcohol! Alcohol does help though - it has been known for me to indulge in a plate of pie and mash when desperate...well...drunk!

Thank the Lord for Chicken Tikka Masala and Doner Kebabs, that's all I can say!!

In Philadelphia, we have the cheesesteak, TastyKakes, and the soft pretzel. All of which are among my favorite foods.

 Smile Aren't you a caution!

I always thought it sounded like a disease one got as a result of the subjunctive tense.

Actually, a fisherman friend of mine informed me that when spelled without an "h" it is cod, and when spelled with an "h," as in schrod, it is catch of the day, often haddock or halibut.

At any rate, with mashed potatoes, salad, and lots of beer or wine, it shore is good eatin'.

From Reading Berkshire....


Beer... Fosters is brewed here, and used to be Simonds (now Courage) Brewery which started brewing in 1785.


Biscuits (cookies) ... Huntley, and later Huntley & Palmer started baking biscuits in the early 1800's, now part of United Biscuits.



Other than that, "Gregs" opposite the station does a mean kebab, if you can stomach eating roadkill in pitta bread that is.

Now how about " Faggots and Peas" , " Dried salted cod "
or "Tripe and onions"

all real great to eat but not together. You need a lot of beer after the Cod

Be happy little vc10
