Ok, so my mom and I just made Таратор(tarator), a Bulgarian cold summer soup, and it tastes FANTASTIC!! You have to get used to the fact that 3/4 of it is made up of cucumber, but it is pretty good. My mom says it tastes similar to a cucumber salad her Polish grandmother made a lot.

Now the point of this thread: Do any of you have family recipes passed down that are part of a certain culture or group(like this soup is Slavic)?

Well my mom learned a lot of the things he knows about cooking from my grandmother, which is awesome because my grandmother worked in a bakery for years.

Only instead of the recipes getting diluted over the generations, they just keep getting better. My kids will make orgasmic food.

Talk about good pies at thanksgiving!

Most bulgarian food is delicious, try Banitsa (i think thats how you spell it) - its one of the nicest things you will ever eat - its like eggy bread with fruit in the middle, glazed with honey, and dipped in syrup or yoghurt it tastes godly =]

Is the polish cucumber dish your referring to by any chance called "miseria"?


I asked my mom, and she says she cannot remember. -shrugs- There is a good chance that it is though

Actually Tarator is awesome. It ain't a soup imo. It's just little cubes cucumber putted into yoghurt mixed with water. It's fresh, healthy and PWNSOME!

    Seems I was somewhat wrong, the concept of pizza was originally from Naples, but the inventors emigrated to New York. It was invented in 1889.

    pizza is, from what I've heard, a traditional dish in many meditarranean countries, even turkey. the idea is basically putting leftovers on a flat bread, then baking it.

    American mexican or real mexican? If you've ever been to Mexico, you'll know American mexican food is way different then actual mexican food. If you're living in MX, I doubt you've ever heard of some of the stuff we call mexican.

    If you're talking american mexican, I challenge your mom to Fajitas.


    If actual mexican food, I challenge her to Barbacoa.

    Get it to me in under 30 min, or else no tip.


    we have a gravy recipe that we pass down, but I don't know if thats from our heritage.

    I believe you have more to worry about than food. Must be an interesting family dynamic... calling a male Mom and all.

    My mom makes this thing she calls "Jonis's chicken." I have no idea how its made, but its orgasmic.

    i hope you know most of New York was italian back then so it was probably italians that made the modern pizza. in italy they make the "old school" pizza by making it with three or four slices of cheese (with maybe some parsley or basil) on top of the tomato sauce which covers flat bread and they put it in the oven. how do i know this 1. im italian 2. history channel
