Which Countries do you think have the best and worst cuisine? For example the amount of great traditional dishes, best quality home produce etc

I think Spain as it has a great variety of home produce that is all high quality (some greens and dairy isnt great due to the hot weather but generally very good). Calimari, Spanish Ommlet and White Asparagus are amazing. Cava is great too.

I think traditionally American recipes are pretty god awful..and homogonising the world with fast food is probably one of the worst things ever to happen in food culture. Most recipes are imported so they dont have a great legacy. Key Lime and Pumpkin Pie are pretty meh IMO.


I WOULDNT say Britain has the worst..some seafood and beef etc is world renowned. I love Sheperds pie and Sunday Roasts etc.

Well, America has fast food, so there's that. As far as our actual food goes, I hear from foreigners who visit us that our food has an artificial taste to it like it isn't real. So I guess, although as an American I love our death-in-one-bite cuisine, I'd have to cast my vote for the US as having the worst food.

To be fair, though, I've never traveled enough to get a taste for what's out there. I am American, after all.

That's not what he's saying, chillax bro. He's saying that America has homogenized the world food culture with fast food, which is pretty much true. Fast food started here and spread from here.

I don't know why so many places abroad thrive to have the 'traditional engligh breakfast' in every single bar they have. It's just butter on toast or eggs and ham.

I've never seen much of British cuisine. It seems to be either fish & chips or fixed portions of stuff... It tastes nice though (with the exception of battered fish).

Persian cuisine is beautiful in my opinion. Or Turkish.

That is not a Traditional English Breakfast. That sounds more like a 'continental breakfast' lol

I don't even know what I would consider "traditional American food". I know that there's distinct, regional types of traditional food like Cajun food.

Depends on the region, I guess.

By definition, all food made in America is American cuisine, foreign or not.

Therefore I vote American cuisine as being the best in the world.

However, if I can't (logically) cheat like that, I'd have to say Italy has the best cuisine. I'll eat anything with meat and sauce, therefore Italian food is my handicap.

All the cuisines around are world are awesome if cooked right, and equally bad if cooked wrong. Also I don't think you can compare what's better or worse, because that kinda takes the point away from enjoying a variety of food.

Kinda like a 'greatest guitarist' poll, if you ask me.

Out of all the cuisines I have tasted, I really like Italian Cuisine the best. Chinese cuisine is amazing as well but I feel as if a lot of Westerners who have never been to Hong Kong, China or Taiwan have been somewhat conned into thinking what they know as Chinese Food as real Chinese Food.

In heaven, the italians would make the food, brits the humour and the germans would be arranging the discipline and order.

In hell, it's german humour, italian discipline and order and british food.

Fast food is generally considered a more western American food. To me the absolute best American cuisine is from the Southern United States. Things like pit barbecue, biscuits and gravy, fried chicken, American style casseroles (very different from the original dish) and the like. That stuff is some of my absolute favorite in the world.

Pretty much every country has food that I can enjoy. It really depends on my mood.

I'm suprised no one's mentioned Japanese as the best cuisine yet. I think most of the stuff I've had was delicious!
#34
My favorite cuisine is Southwestern. I don't even cook and I have 7 cookbooks on it that I read all the time and I visualize the ingredients and stuff, and when I get through a recipe it feels like I just ate something.

But I like most types of food. I don't think I have a least favorite. Maybe anything that relies heavily on seafood since I hate seafood.

Italy probably has the best and the worst might be Thailand or somewhere like that with their battered testicles and fried horse period.

Italian and Mexican for best.

South Indian for worst.

Good food:
- Italian is probably the best. It's healthy, simple and (if done well) tastes amazing. That's what good cuisine is to me.
- Chinese and Japanese, another favourite as it's always flavoursome and never feels heavy or difficult to eat
- Spanish, rich flavours and good meats. They know how to eat!

Bad food:
- Mexican, to me it's almost always just a stodgy lump of indiscriminate mashed up meat , and a bad combination of bland but hot.
- German, seems always grey, unappetising and heavy
- British. The trademark dishes people seem to love (Roast Dinner, Pies, English Breakfast, Steaks etc...) are actually most of the time greasy, heavy, unseasoned lumps of carbs and fat with little flavour.
