I've never tried fish tacos. Sounds tasty!

I like:
Filipino - pancit
Thai - pad thai
Ukrainian - perogies (potato cheddar - home made, that is)
Indian - tandoori chicken
German - any of their wonderful breads!
Persian - it is this rice dish, where you have potatoes fried on the bottom and the rice is steamed, I don't recall the name
Middle eastern - their baklava, soo soo tasty!

That's all that comes to mind, right off the top of my head. I know there's many more, though (ugh, I am SO hungry now ... dinner will be ready in 30 mins).

Well, as a native Southern California girl, top of my list is:

- Mexican!

Next and in no particular order is:

- Italian (my Italian Mom's cooking - major drool!)
- American Bar-B-Que and Southern cooking which crosses cultures with Soul Food (my Southern Pa's cooking - major drool 2!)
- Greek
- Chinese
- Persian
- Spanish
- Peruvian
- French
- Thai

You could feed me almost anything from any of these ethnicities and I'd eat it. What I won't eat EVER - sushi (the raw kind)! The thought makes me *shiver*. I had a friend who got violently ill from sushi and I've never touched the stuff since.

Do you know that chicken satay is originally Indonesian? I think it's the Thai restaurants that have made it famous as a Thai dish. I'm Thai and I didn't know that either Embarassed

-boilion (made fresh with chicken and carrots)
-plov (rice/curry/meat dish)
-chibureki (huge deep-fried dough with meat inside)
-pilmeni (boiled in water- dough and meat)
ETC.

Vietnamese- Pho! (however I have a weird thing for texture of the foods I eat, so I have to get it with meats that are recognizable to me Laughing ).

Chinese- Lo mein, sesame anything, fried/ steamed rice, dumplings

American- Steak, sweet potatoes, fish taco's (Del Taco's are pretty good), cotton candy, chicken pot pie.


The list can go on and on. I'll think of more later on =). Keep 'em coming everyone, your giving me ideas of what to eat this week! Laughing

Azores - special cow's milk cheese, breads, another meatball-type dish that I can't remember the name of, (absolutely not cozido, though - that's foul)

Chinese - (not sure whether half of these actually are really Chinese, or whether they're anglicised versions) crispy duck with pancakes, dim sum, crispy beef in rainbow sauce, sweet and sour, prawn crackers, chicken and sweetcorn soup, charsui buns, sesame prawn toasts, tea

Japanese - noodle soup, okonomiyaki, plum wine, adzuki beans

Vietnamese - porc au caramel, coconut flan

Polish - Pierogis

Can't think of any more, but I'm sure I've missed loads out.

(Just edited to add the pierogis, stolen from wildflower's list. Had forgotten about those lovely delights.)

I had no idea what they were until my boyfriend insisted we had to have some with roast beef. Now I have to have them every time we have Sunday roast Smile Problem is I can't get to them to rise properly as we don't have Yorkshire pudding tin here in Thailand. My boyfriend is tempted to ask his mom to send him one from England. Laughing

Mmm Yorkshire pudding! I remember when I was younger, I thought this was some sort of creamy pudding dessert. LOL Didn't find out what it really was until I started waitressing at an English Banquet Centre on weekends when I was in school. They made such great puds and excellent prime rib with jus. They were perfect for sopping.

There are so many other great foods listed here that I have yet to try. I am getting hugnry all over again and I just had a full dinner!

Lynne, I so love the southern curry at Thai Emporium Restaurant in Westwood, but when I went to Phuket in November, I could not find this dish anywhere! I was amazed. Actually I couldn't find the southern curry at any other restaurant in LA, except at the Emporium in Westwood. I wonder if they made up this dish themselves, or can you vouch for this dish as a real southern dish?

bkkgirl,

Do you remember what the dish is called? It's very possible that Thai restaurants create their own dishes and claim them to be authentic. Also, in the South we sort of divide our cuisine and dialect into upper South and lower South. Food can be quite different between the two parts of the South. Am I making any sense? hmm When I was living overseas it was so hard to find Southern Thai food anywhere. I guess it's because there aren't that many Thai immigrants from the South. It's even hard to find good Southern food in Bangkok!!!

No. It's a trade secret.



j/k Laughing


I just throw 4oz plain flour, a pinch of salt, 2 eggs and half a pint of milk (or substitute up to half of that amount with water for a lighter version - if you're very adventurous, you might want to try lemonade like my aunt, or maybe sparkling water would do the trick) into a bowl and give it a really good beating until it's smooth and well aerated.

Then I leave the mixture for around half an hour. I have absolutely no idea why. It's just something you do with Yorkshire pudding batter, apparently. Probably something sciencey.

Meanwhile, you want to heat up your oven so it's nice and hot (200 C). I use a Yorkshire pudding tray, but a muffin tray would do nicely. You put a small amount of lard or beef dripping into each hole in the tray - about half the size of one of my thumbnails' worth. Then the baking tray goes into the oven until the fat is really, really hot. Make sure of this or you won't have as much success with the rising.

When the fat is ready, give the batter another good beating, then quickly take the tray out of the oven and pour the batter into each hole, almost filling them. Once again, as quickly as poss, so the fat doesn't cool down, replace the tray into the oven.

Mine usually take around 30 mins to cook, but just keep checking on them if you have a window in your oven. Try and be sure not to open the oven door beforehand unless it's a dire emergency, like the world's about to come to an end or something. (Although why you'd want to bother checking your Yorkshires if the world was ending, I do not know.)

Finally, enjoy your lovely Yorkshires with plenty of gravy and stuff.

You can also cook sausages in the oven in a big dish with a little fat to brown them, then pour over Yorkshire pudding batter and bake in the oven until brown and risen. This is called Toad in the Hole and is absolutely gorgeous.
