International cuisine

Please, talk about your favourite dishes and specialities of various national cuisines. What public eating places do you prefer? Do you like to cook?

Indian food. Having an Indian colleague at work is good.

I prefer a beef vindaloo with the destructive power of 20 suns but I'm also partial to a well made chicken moghlai or octopus jalfrezi. Butter chicken is also good but its not worth the jar its in if you buy it from a supermarket.

Liam would you mind sending me those recipes?

One of my favourite foreign dishes is this Afghani rice that is spicy but has a hint of sweetness (thanks to raisins) place some marinated lamb with it and you have a fine meal.

I quite enjoy foreign food myself. I should have been born in the mediterranean, cause most of my food has tomato and onion incorporated somehow. I make a mean pizza (from scratch).

I also love Indian and Mexican food, and I'm experimenting with stirfries at the moment.

Apologies for contradicting the 'international' theme of this thread, I just have to say:

BRITISH FOOD FTW

FTL, for sure!

Your peas are far too big, for starters.

Lol - we love immigrants really.

I'm from a lovely place (Netherlands), I'm just doing some temporary schooling over here. Notts Uni has a world-renowned English department, you see.

One thing I love about England is the abundance of naans in supermarkets. Mmmm.

Three things come to mind when I think of the Netherlands: Windmills, prostitutes and funny accents. You'll be the forth.

What do Dutch people eat? (apart from cocks )
I've never been, although you're probably the closest country to me outside Britain. It sounds like an awesome place but I rate countries on their food.

I'm just going to ignore that

Mandy, don't forget your services to fast food and Tex Mex! I seriously think the world would be a worse place without them. Not every day type of food, sure, but sooo good every now and then.

Most of our food is just traditional vegetables-potatoes-meat type of stuff, although we do have an eastern cuisine that is heavily influenced by Indonesian cooking, due to our colonisation of the place a few centuries back. And you can't beat sauerkraut mash. Or curly kale mash. Or any other kind of Dutch mash. But it's not half as good if you don't have the right smoked sausage to go with it. So I guess that brings us back to eating cocks.

PS. Do not have a funny accent.

It's definitely great, but it really is shit. It's tasty shit with a smiley face.

This is odd, but I always find certain petrol stations that sell really AMAZING biscuits (bread type thing, not cookies) and gravy in the mornings.

Mandy's selling my country short. We have some great cuisine here. Maybe not always the healthiest. But it's good.

I will admit that other countries are superior with the culinary stuff. I love sushi. And I can't really think of any great examples of other international dishes I like. But there are some.


Where's Brad?
