Katie,

Thanks a lot for taking the trouble to dig out this family recipe. It is exactly how I expect traditional home-style recipes to be. Lasagne in a way is quite similar in preparation to Greek Mousakas. I will definitely try this when time permits.

If I were to pick one favourite, it would be clearly Italian, but living in the heart of Rome, "Italian cuisine" is considered just normal food, not at all "ethnic"!! Also it is really a broad description to just say Italian food, as they can differ from being "Alpine" in the north to "Semi tropic" in the south, and everything else in between. But I like them all!! (well, as long as it doesn't get too carnivorous...)

Other cuisines I am particularly fond of are

-Indian
-Middle Eastern-Mediterranean (things like Lebanese, Turkish, Moroccan etc... they seem to have strong connections due to the logistic/climatic factor and their culinary borders are sort of blurred...)
-Mexican
-Greek

I have so many that I adore it`s impossible to deliver a concise answer, but as a short list (in no particular order) it would have to be:

Thai
BBQ (it`s still semi-foreign in the UK)
Mexican
Japanese

and any of the above with a Beer :)

yt, oofda! i haven't had mickey d's in years. about the only fast food i'll eat is wendy's.
i even risked and caught montezuma's revenge, after a hurricane in mexico, because i refused to eat mcdonald's. everyone else i travelled with ate mcdonald's for a week, nothing else, and were fine. i would have rather been sacrificed at chichen itza than eat those dried up hockey pucks for so long.


hah! clive, i do have a favourite food from burkina faso.
they have a special dish, created in 1952 by a family of great chefs known the schwedees.
it is essentially a combination of secret ingredients, found only in burkina faso, and somewhat resembles a cross between a truffle and a meatball.
recently, the word has gotten out about them, and people from everywhere are travelling to burkina faso to get them.

if you are adventurous enough, you should be able to find lots of sites on the internet that have pictures of, and maybe even sells schwedee balls.

Bucky, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the correct spelling "Schweddy?"
As in Pete Schweddy?
