Response to lunatica (Reply #25)

32. Let me rephrase

Looking for a distinct white culture food that defines America, in line with mark kennedy's comments. Something that we didn't 'borrow' from the Indians, Chinese, Mexicans, Italians, Germans, French, Irish, Spanish or any of the other other cultures whose peoples live within the borders of the U.S.A. Since I hosted exchange students, I have often thought of this and can't come up with a food that represent our melting pot/salad bowl population that is uniquely American and not brought from a European country or a country in its sphere of influence during colonization. Maybe fair food like fried Twinkies?

Did you get to read 1491 by Charles Mann? A good read about Native American cultures before Columbus.
