If you think it's like bangers and mash, you obviously have no idea what I'm talking about :P

As for the Dutch accent, I'm well aware my fellow countrymen sound a bit off when producing something like English, but I don't. And also, how's your Dutch these days?

I think it would be easier to list what I don't like.

I'm not really fond of Indian, mainly because I am not a fan of spicy food.
That said, I have had some marvelous Indian dishes on the milder side.

I love Italian food. Growing up, we lived next to a couple named Vincent and Rose Capitano. If I remember correctly, they were one generation removed from Italy. She used to make dishes of manicotti just for me. Heaven in an oven safe dish.

Cuban food is wonderful. Come to Tampa and sample the roast pork that makes knives superfluous with yellow rice smothered in black beans, all with a side of plaintains.

Good Mexican food is hard to beat on a bang for your buck basis, and when it's done right is out of this world. As is good Salvadoran and Ecuadoran cuisine. Similar...but each with its own nuance. When I lived in Atlanta, you could always get good central American fare.

French food...I think goes without saying.

I really like German food because I love potatoes and meat. People after my own heart...in more ways than one.

As for American food...let's not be too hasty in our dismissal.
New England clam chowder, when done right, is one of God's gifts to man.
Just because you eat a Philly cheesesteak with your hands, doesn't mean it can be dismissed as a culinary delight.
And last, but certainly not least, the American South is a shining beacon of gastronomical pleasures that are sure to delight. Barbecued meat was actually created on the eighth day. And there are many variations throughout the southeast, Texas and St. Louis to keep your taste buds jumping. From the vinegar based sauces of the Carolinas to the spicy mesquite fires of Texas, you'll never grow tired of a good brisket or spare-rib.
You simply have not lived until you have paid an old black woman $2.99 to eat her barbecued pork, macaroni and cheese, collard greens and sliced tomatoes off of mismatched plates in a diner by the Tuscaloosa County Jail.
I have two more words for you...cheese grits.
Two more words...fried okra.

And Mandy's right about breakfast...biscuits (Southern style buttermilk wads of dough baked to a golden brown) smothered in sausage gravy is heaven when prepared right. Add in some hashbrown casserole from Cracker Barrel and you will truly think you've died and gone to heaven.

Joly, I don't think pursuing the subject will help. Every country has pricks, so? The joke's worn off.

Back to subject...we don't have any "traditional" cuisine. We're a country of immigrants, so everybody eats whatever recipes their ancestors brought along in the voyage.
Yes, we do have typical meat-with-stuff things and desserts we can call "ours", but I'm not a big fan of the first since I can't stomach Uruguayan meat too well and have my objections against the latter...too much dulce de leche. A little is wonderful. But on everything? Ugh.

I don't have "favourites". I just like to try new things. If you tell me it's a new dish from some foreign country, I'll try it, what's in it doesn't matter much as long as my stomach can stand it

I'm not sure about the English, but we do in the United States.
Pork chops, apple sauce, mashed potatoes and green beans have been a meal for me more times than I can remember.

Who tasted maple syrup? Have no idea, if it is delicious... And it sounds so strange to me.
