What kind of ethnic cuisine is your favorite? Do you go ape over sushi? Love Mexican? Get mysterious cravings for Indian?

Oops, so sorry! I

created this poll fairly quickly (and I cook a lot of Italian, so I should know better!).

Hey Jes.

Do

"fish & chips"not count??!!!
What about Steak & kidney Pie?
And Cottage pie?

Hows a dash of "British"

Q's there?...
but without trying to be funny, I would go for "Italian" and next American.

What do you prefer?

Well, I love cooking

whatever I can master (how's that for evasive)? Very Happy

Actually, I love most things put in front of me but I don't eat

red meat or pork. So, it's anything (well, almost) with poultry or fish or vegetarian.

For example, my folks were

here for the weekend. Now, I haven't been much of a cook until recently, so I decided I was going to cook for them - and

nearly every meal. Here's how it went.

Friday night we went out for Italian.
Saturday morning I made french toast,

hash browns and turkey bacon, with a fruit salad (my father is watching his cholesterol so that was more for him than anyone

else).
Saturday lunch was leftovers from our night out at Italian.
Saturday evening I made herb roasted chicken which

my husband pronounced 'restaurant quality' and my Dad had fifths. My Mom was astonished at how easy it is (I'll post the

recipe in a separate message). Surprisingly enough, we have some leftovers. I may turn it into a soup this week if it gets

chilly. Plus we had potatoes and onions (roasted) and broccoli with bread crumbs.
Sunday morning we went out for

brunch.
Sunday evening, I made tangy and spicy green beans, plain rice but with mushrooms just to kind of dress it up (but

no seasoning, as everything else was fairly well seasoned). Plus pan friend noodles with bok choy and pea pods. So it was

somewhat Asian.
This morning, the folks left early and just had cereal.

This week, I'm going to try a vegetarian

chili stew (real chili is beef hence the term 'chili stew'). I haven't made it yet so I have no idea how it'll turn out.

Plus this week I'll make fajitas one night and another night we'll have tofu sautéed with bok choy (again, Asian). I think

we'll have pasta another night. Tonight is fried chicken (it's from a box) so all I'll do is add the leftover potatoes and

onions from the chicken dinner and make a salad.

I guess I cook Mexican, Italian and Chinese the most, with American a

fourth. Since I don't cook steak, American is mainly barbecued turkey burgers or turkey hot dogs, or the aforementioned

fried chicken. I have made falafel and I have tried to make Indian but that can be tough (lots of ingredients with really

only one purpose, so it can get expensive if you don't use up everything).

The fajitas used to be my best dish but I

think the herb roasted chicken is now in the top spot. I love fish and chips but we don't buy

fish too often (goes bad too quickly).

Oops, this turned into a novel!

Well, when's the

next plane to Boston?

I'll cook if other people (a) set the table; (b) clean up and (c) don't bother me while

cooking, as I wield a very large knife. Twisted Evil

I am nuts for sashimi. My husband doesn't eat

Japanese food (part allergies, part finicky), so every once in a while, I have to grab a girlfriend, and go for lunch. When I

lived in NY, my girlfriend and I would go out after work once a work for that heavenly

stuff!

Cravn, Chitown as

in Chicago? Seriously?

Jes, where's that chicken recipe?! I want it.

You reminded me of roasted veggies,

though, a staple for a while (one of those things with a good effort/ whoa! factor ratio) but which I haven't made in a long

time.

Oh I didn't

answer, though... I LOVE good Indian food (had samosas every day when I lived in London, yum!!), as well as good Thai food

(Pad Thai addict), good Italian food, good Mexican food (had a few amazing cooks on my staff in L.A., who would make the real

stuff and bring it in for our potluck Fridays -- I had no idea that's what tamales were

supposed to taste like)...

In other words, pretty much anything if well made, authentic a

plus.

I think the chicken

recipe is in another thread (the best meal you ever made, or something like that).

PS Whenever the heck you get here,

we'll go out for Pad Thai, which I also love. This is why we are twins (Evil twins? You make the call).

I think it might be because I cook for a living, but I can find things I like in all of the ethnic cuisines I've tried.

I can't really pick a favorite, but,...if I was forced to choose one cuisine, and that was all I could have, I would have to say Japanese, especially sashimi and sushi, I always feel good when I eat them, never to full, clean flavors,... ok must make some today!!! Laughing

lots of wonderful food in this world...why choose just one favorite?
...but if it's a forced choice here's my write-in vote for Italian.

What? No "German" on the list? Smile How can you top a good Schnitzel? Or a nice Wurst on Sunday watching a football game?

My preferences:
1. German
2. Cajun
3. Italian
