Re: Foreign Foods Quiz.

not given up exactly there is too much controversy over countries of origin when it comes to the history of food. many countries/towns claim to be the first but quite often they are wrong. consider what we perceive to be traditional british dishes that actually come from somewhere else!

the practice of frying fish was traditionally jewish - they would fry the fish the night before the sabbath so they did not have to cook on the sabbath day.

here is one article however there are many more

BBC News - The unlikely origin of fish and chips

Re: Foreign Foods Quiz.

from jamie oliver's new series: Lasagne is British! And other UK food facts that might surprise you - Channel4 - 4Food

Lasagne is British!

Italians might hold their layered pasta masterpiece up as a symbol of patriotic pride, but some historians have caused a stir by suggesting that Mamma's famous dish might actually be, well, Mum's.

In 2003, researchers at the British Museum noted that 14th Century cookbook The Forme of Cury, popular during the time of Richard III, features a dish called 'Loseyn', made up of sheets of pasta topped with cheese.


Haggis is English!

The Scots hold many distinctions over the English – their dramatic scenery, their fetching kilts, the recording career of the Proclaimers – but their national dish might not be quite the patriotic plateful that Robert Burns once thought.

Haggis, 'the great chieftain of the puddin' race', is sheep's heart, liver and lungs, mixed with oatmeal, suet, onion and spices, traditionally eaten by Scots every January on Burns' Night. But in 2009, food historian Catherine Brown found reference to haggis in English cookery book The English Hus-wife, from 1615, which is a whole 132 years before the first Scottish reference to the delicacy. Sorry Nessie.

Being red, it might be Borsch beetroot soup, but it would only be served in a glass when served chilled.
It is 'eastern European' maybe Transylvanian because the one time I made it my son couldn't eat it, saying it was like eating blood.
