I'm wondering how one identifies American Food! For me, I instantly thought of the foods from PA Dutch Country where I grew up when I read this question - but they aren't really "typical American" when you get right down to it, are they? I guess I consider them American because the food is very basic - but it all came from somewhere else to begin with.
If I came from the south, for instance, I would have different ideas of "typical American food".
So, the question is - what is American Food?
