Strange Cuisine From Your Country/ethnicity

Mon Mar 22, 2004 1:13 am

What signature dish from your country/ethnicity is something that people outside would find it impossible to get down?

Not too many unique things from the States per se (excepting of course, say McDonalds) but I'll start with two New York things and one Jewish thing.

Egg Creams - Ice cream or milk and seltzer with syrup. Absolutely gross to most non-New Yorkers, actually pretty gross to me.

Celery soda which I've never seen outside of the New York area. Actually not bad.

Gefilte Fish - You have to sort of be "to the shtetl born." Technically I think it is pickled and breaded Pike or Whitefish. Very difficult to get used to.


I have one food experience as an outsider that I still remember.
In college my roomate was from Britain and got me to try Marmite. Couldn't get it down. It was horrible!

When I visited England a few years ago, I was offered Yorkshire Pudding. My host mentioned that most non "British" could'nt handle it. I, however did'nt have a problem with it.
Yay Pudding!

Go3Team, i think its more the concept that the non british cant handle. Having a yorkshire pudding with your main course. Speaking of which my sunday dinner is nearly ready, Roast Beef and Yorkshire pudding!

Us Scots have the "Great chieftain o' the pudden race": Haggis.

Sheeps stomach stuffed with oats, onions, spices and all the bits of a sheep you would normally throw away: lungs, heart and liver. Lovely!

We also have Porriage, Hash-Browns, Stovies and Scotch Broth which is a bit more appealing.

And not forgetting the Cuisine that everyone loves: Scottish Salmon washed down with Whisky!

Dormice are considered a great (but rare) delicacy in Slovenia. And, no, they are not really mice, but rather more squirrel-like forest rodents. They are also eaten in some other parts of southern and south-central Europe and were even enjoyed by the Romans. Of course, not all people approve of using dormice for food.

INFO ON DORMICE: http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/wildfacts/factfiles/269.shtml

Nighthawk,
when I was a vegetarian, I had vegetarian "haggis" over there - tofu, tempeh, and God only knows what else plus the oats and spices. I was on the lookout for the deep-fried Mars bars but didn't see them.

Nighthawk,

No wonder my father learned to cook Indian style when he was working over there!
But the German province of Rheinland-Pfalz has a very similar dish called the "Pfälzer Saumagen" (Sow´s stomach, Palatine style). Since this province is the home of former chancellor Helmut Kohl and this meal is his favourite dish, all foreign dignitaries had to eat it (Uhg!).

My mother likes a very smelly cheese from her home province Hessen (Handkäs). I had to leave the kitchen when she unwrapped one.

BTW, if anyone intends to do some dormouse trapping  Big grin, here is a quick Slovenian recipe from http://www.soupsong.com/znov01.html:

"4 dormice fried in oil, sprinkled with flour then stewed in water with potatoes, herbs, salt, pepper, and lemon peel--flavored with vinegar just before serving."

Spleen dumplings -- made from, yes, spleen -- are common in Slovenia as well as in some nearby countries (including Austria, the Czech Republic, and parts of Northeastern Italy).

For Australia it would have to be Vegemite without a doubt. Also Roo tail soup -- once you get around the fact that you might be eating Skippy, you should be right.

Also drop bear casseroles and hoop snake salads make for tasty eating.

Eating live animals usually doesn't set well with me. Oysters are a personal exception.

Modern westerners are often turned off by cuisine that is common in other areas of the world, but some people here still delight in pickled pork snouts and such. I muse at southern relatives badmouthing my taste for escargot but turn around and fry-up pig's intestines for themselves. Regards

In Germany, there are many strage dishes. Just to name a few:

* Mettbroetchen. This is *raw* ground pork with pepper and raw onions on a bread roll. actually, I like it.

* Blutwurst: type of black pudding. sausage made with pork blood and thick pieces of pork fat. I hate it.

* Sauerbraten: A marinated roast beef. Put the beef in a gravy made of vinegar, juniper, laurel, onions and let it in the fridge for a week. than cook slowly. nothing strange yet? well, many use horseflesh instead of beef.

I'm too mixed to narrow it down to one dish, so I'll just pick something that I thought was strange when I visited Australia:

Vegimite. I couldn't handle it. However, everywhere I went in Australia, the butter was excellent. I later found out they use buffalo milk or something like that.

Well it is not a food for every day but, according to old wives tales in teh area hog jawls are supposed to bring good luck it you eat them on New Years day along with black eyed peas. i don't believe in luck so I just eat teh hog jawls. Its just like baccon. i also consider fired chicken an ethnic food of the south. NOT KFC (not that I don't like it) real home fried chicken. Yeah sure you can get it anywhere but, no where near as good as it is in the SOUTH.

Garen, you are quickly becoming my new favorite person on this forum lol. Also, let's not forget Southern cornbread! There are two types, low country and mountain. I personally like mountain cornbread which is crumbly and thick, while lowland is sweet and cake like. Mountain cornbread can also have fried chitlins in it. (Fried pig intestine) I know it sounds good, but when you hit a piece of warm, fried, pig skin inside that cornbread, it's like heaven.

Here in the southern/southwest USA... there's Chit'lins (chitterlings), Tripe, Tongue, and Rocky Mountain Oysters.


They are (respectively): hog intestine; hog or cow stomach; cow tongue; and cattle testicles.



I'll try most things... but I've eaten none of the above.

caviar. not THAT strange,but no one beside my russian friend and I eat it. i dont know why, they are just like chicken eggs(but saltier and more expensive). During some french thing every1 in our french class had to bring in some type of french quisine.i brought 1/4 kilo of caviar-needless to say only 10% was eaten by my class.

there are also sprats(small fish that are like sardines) that are completley dried. to eat it,you have to bite off the head.they are really salty,and once my friend brought them to some other people. They were hesitent,but found it additive  Smile

BTW,the country is Russia.

I have yet to figure out the strage obsession this country has with deep fat frying stuff. I will eat Walla Walla onion rings and breaded, deep fried okra, but when they start deep frying Twinkies, that is going too far.

Fried Okra
Fried Corn Nugetts
Fried Shrimp.
Fried Potatos
Fried Squash
Fried Fish
Fried Rice
Fried Eggs
Fried CHICKEN
Fried Steak
Fried Pork Chops
Fried Baccon
Fried Green Tomato's

Anybody got any more?

-Charqui: Horse dried meat...quite good and tasty.
-Chumbeque: A kind of pie, made with peach jam...THE most DRY and HARD AS A ROCK sweet you will ever taste...not bad taste, but so dry it's not nice to eat.
-Prietas: blood sausages, just like Morcillas
-Sesos: the brain of a cow or a pork.

Here are a few:
NL: Raw herring, you throw your head back and let it slip down your throat
Hong Kong: Mostly anything that moves, but there is a pigeon restaurant on Lamma Island where it gets served with the heads. Nice and crunchy.
Philippines: Half developed eggs ...
South Africa: Raw, dried meat called Biltong. It can be game, fish, ostrich, beef, etc. I've heard of tourists not knowing what the gift is planting it when they get home. Very delicious though.
Did the chicken or the egg get laid first?

Pennsylvania Dutch:

Shoo-Fly Pie.

Basically, it's a pie made of molasses. You bake a pie crust, pour in a whole bunch of molasses, then sprinkle a mixture of flour and brown sugar on top. Then bake it again.

Thus, the reason it's called shoo-fly pie.

Nothing like a slab of shoo-fly pie and a cup of black coffee to get you revved up for a hard day's work on the farm!

The best Shoo-Fly Pie is from Wixon's Bakery:

I have a lengthy list. By the way this post was hysterical.

Scotland:
As previously noted Haggis is disgusting.
England:
If someone offers you "Drippings on Toast"..run like mad for the door. It is grease drippings.
In Finland I had this Rye Pudding that looked rather like someone's stool called "Mammi". If you closed your eyes it wasn't half bad, but if you opened them it was difficult to eat.
In the USA I would have to say Kale and Collard Greens are a disgusting combination, especially steamed and mixed with bacon the way Southerners might eat it.
In Argentina there are cuts of Asado that aren't appetizing(Although most are scrumptious)..however the worst is the Chinchulin.....which I believe is the small intestine...
War is a very poor political tool

Sauerbraten: A marinated roast beef. Put the beef in a gravy made of vinegar, juniper, laurel, onions and let it in the fridge for a week. than cook slowly. nothing strange yet? well, many use horseflesh instead of beef I don't know how they do it in Düsseldorf but I make sure I have it when I'm there every November.

I'm Scottish so I guess the haggis neeps etc has been covered....

Here in South Africa we have Mopani worms, a caterpillar from the Mopani tree that is deep fried and eaten, tastes like burnt toast (I've been told)

Biltong, dried strips of meat spiced and hung for weeks (I think the Americans call it Jerky)

Boerewors, a long sausage (like a metre long!) that is usually coiled up and barbecued.

Any wild animal is a meal on legs (to some people), so you can get all sorts of antelope, crocodile, giraffe etc.

I'm sure there are lots of others that are traditional tribal dishes but I haven't been adventurous enough to try them yet.

Grits and fried okra are things you will never see outside the south. I dont know what the hell grits are but they can be pretty good, depending where you get them.
I've never seen an okra plant, but supposedly they're natural. Fried okras good.
Moon pies are never seen outside the south, god knows why.
In Sucre, Bolivia there's a soup made out of bull's testicles. My host family gave me some without warning once, but it was actually pretty good.

Some other Pennsylvania Dutch items:

Tripe = pickled pig's stomach. Looks pinkish-white, usually cut into one-inch cubes or small chunks.

Red Beet Eggs, AKA Pickled beet eggs. You get some hard-boiled eggs (let's say, six) and shell them. Rinse them off and put them in a quart of white vinegar with a can of sliced beets. Stir in a cup of sugar. Let it sit for a couple of days.
You end up with purple eggs (if you let it sit long enough, the yolks will turn purple, too.) The egg-whites taste like sweet beets and depending on whether it soaked all the way through, the yolks might be beety as well. If you eat the beets they are of course now sweet-and-sour beets.

Muenster cheese. Eat the red rind!

Ye sokra does exist. We grow it in the garden. Grits however, were never common around my house. They are bits of corn in a flour type soup/paste more or less. I am not a big fan. Biscuits and sausage gravy are big breakfast items when I go home. Dang those biscuits are awesome. I miss my momma's cooking. You forgot about RC cola/SunDrop. Those are southern drinks. SunDrop has more cafeen than anything on the market.

In Pakistan we have a few, one dish called "Kheeree" is barbequed udder (cow's breast) the texture is chewy sort of like squid, quite tasty, other than that we have another dish called "Khata Khat" in which kapooray (goat/sheep testes) are added, but thats an option, other ingridients include brain, liver, heart, kidneys you have to have atleast one of these in it, since its higly spiced you dont really get to taste the flavour of the various parts unless they're not properly cooked, thats when the kidneys have a goaty urine smell, another is "Niharee" which is quite a normal but rather spicy curry with beef and bone marrow, only some times people prefer to have a whole brain floating in it, quite a ghastly sight.
