i know it's a mind reduction but as can be yours when you think to France
Very strong French influence in LA, especially around the Lake Charles area. French is still a first language for some Cajuns.

Yes, it is a gross generalization and those are cities and not states.

There is no "middle east" to speak of in the US. I'm guessing that you mean Midwest, which can be both conservative and very liberal. I'm surprised that you didn't mention the South.

I have been to France several times and appreciate the differences your lovely country has to offer!

I think he meant Los Angeles, not Louisiana.

When I travel in Europe it boggles my mind how small it is compared to the vastness of the United States. Simply put, if the Union had not been formed to be united all the States would be countries.

I haven't read this, but the regions listed here seem reasonable to me: http://whatscookingamerica.net/Ameri...ricanIndex.htm

The "Far West" region (California, Hawaii, and Nevada) seems like a strange grouping but I'd go along with the rest.

Yeah. California is so big, you'd almost have to say Southern Calif. goes with the Southwest and Northern Calif. goes with the Northwest. Hawaii stands alone

And I meant Louisiana, as he might not realize that the French influence is still strong there. Obviously he didn't mention that part of the US, so I was letting him know about it.

Right - he was talking about Los Angeles. So you talking about LA but not clarifying that it was not Los Angeles would just be confusing to someone who may not know about Louisiana at all. It confused me and I'm an American who is knowledgeable about the states and regional cuisines
