The US , while having a sort of national cuisine, OWes most of its tastes to influences from cultures that have blended themselves and have become part of our national taste buds.
Weve absorbed and modified foods from so many cultures that I cant even think about what is or is not native foods besides maize dishes , pumplins and gourds, potato dishes and plain roasted meats.
Right now I could really go for some sushi rolls. I had two burritos for supper last evening.
I did have oatmeal for breakfast yeasterday (b ut Im not sure that oatmeal isnt english or Irish (since those cultures are famous for cooking the crap (and flavor) out of foods they eat).
Heres a picture of a food that wqe consider a delicacy. This food was, in the colonial pweriod, fed to slaves and prisoners and at that time was connsidered among the lowest of the low things to eat. Times sure change.
I GIVE YOU, THE HUMBLE LOBSTER
