LOL - you left off Haggis Ishbel - and I left off French

I like French food - but prefer the peasant food - not so much the fancy restaurant fare.

Close enough Michael. It is basically an amalgamation of Chinese and Malay cuisine. The dishes have a rich, spicy and robust taste. Coconut milk and spices are present in most of them. Of course for a healthier diet, you can always replace coconut milk with milk or yoghurt. The desserts are really yummy but very laborious to do. In a way, the cuisine is quite similar to Greek, not necessarily in taste but style of cooking.

I will post some recipes later when I find the time to put them together.

I am passionate about Indian food. Chenna Dal cooked in a spicy tomato sauce; Shrimp in coconut sauce with Curry leaves; buttery, flaky parathas; Aviyal....

Stop! Stop! I'm getting hungry!

I just love food in general. There is not a cuisine that I have tried that I have not absolutely loved. Indian took me the longest to warm up to, but now it is at the top of my list.

Wow, almost un-answerable! British (I am lumoing them together, but I should sat English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh) I consider my starting base of ethnicity, so I guess I love that food!, then Carribean, French, Italian, Indian, Chinese, Greek, American, Morrocan. I want to say Jewish, but don't want to offend anyone who would break it down futher, eg sephardic. I just cook very general Jewish food as taugh to me by my husband's aunt and a load of Jewish cookery books. And American! ;)

(It's still there today.) I remember being told that Peranakan is of Malay origin that has evolved through various cultural influences. I can't remember if I liked the food though. That was waaaaay before I became a foodie. Actually, I think I was too goo-goo eyed with my hot date to even remember tasting the food.

I have a trip to Singapore coming up. Maybe I'll try Peranakan again.

I grew up on filipino food. I love lumpia, pancit, siopao, adobo chicken. Of course it's always better when my mom makes it than when i make it. But I also love pizza, and curried foods.

my favourite comfort food which I can't have anymore because of diabetes is my dad's potato with egg. I think it's filipino or spanish omelet.

slice up a bunch of potatoes like french fries. fry in med-low heat until just tender. not mushy or golden brown. if they stick together, that's good. Beat up a couple eggs with pinch of salt. pour over the potatoes. flip. serve hot. it should be more potatoey than eggy. yummm...
