Buckytom, when I first came to California & ordered a bagel & cream cheese in a coffee shop, the waitress looked at me kinda funny & said, we don't serve that here - that's Jewish food. :D :D

american cuisine

there are the common fried chicken and apple pie, but you bring up the point that while many foods in the US have foreign influences, they have also been assimilated. other American foods have been disguised as foreign, chop suey and nachos. So, you could say deep dish pizza and California roll sushi are American foods also.

lol mish. during my first trip to so. cal., dw and i were eating seafood in a beautiful restaurant in laguna, overlooking the beach. we asked for bread with our dinners, ya know, like dinner rolls, or a baguette or something. the waiter lokked at us funny, disappeared, then came back to ask again what we wanted with a really puzzled look, and eventually showed up with a coupla slices of wonder white bread. i guess they aren't bread people out there on the left coast.
so , of course, i had to make small geometric figures out of the shmushed wonder bread. :D

Guess they had an abundance of white bread for the breakfast flock of (Jonathan Livingston) seagulls. If you ordered foccacia, they might have had a better idea what food group you were looking for. :D

Laguna Beach is beautiful, btw.

That surprises me mish, southern california is full of Jewish delis and nearly every place serves bagels. Where were you and what year was that. Beverly Hills is especially full of the deli shops.

I'll probably get beaten up for saying this...but my hubby usually says I consider anything not Asian American food.

If he asks "Where do you want to go to eat?" and I say "No American" it means his only options are Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai or Indian.

I think it was Thomas Jefferson who actually got the ball rolling with tomatoes. Before him, most thought they were poisonous, so he ate one in public to prove they were not. Can you imagine the looks on those people's faces when that happened?


Bucky - come back to California - we love bread. It's just those nutty atkins folks who don't....oh yeah, that's most of the county....
well, I love bread anyway!
