Both dishes are lamb based – both should use neck of lamb chops. Some even say an Irish stew should be mutton based, while the Navarin (stew) d’Agneau (of lamb) is usually a spring dish to celebrate new season lamb. Now I echo her sentiments – soft serve ice cream, a drizzle of syrup, and a Cadbury Flake to top it all off is a British treat best tasted on the boardwalk in Blackpool or on the pebble beaches of Brighton.”, won't find exactly the same offerings at a British McDonald's, as you would at an American one. Italian food connotes simplicity – no frills, ingredient-led, easy to reproduce at home. For many, on the other hand, French symbolises wealth and opulence, a special-occasion fanciness, where presentation is as important as taste. In order to find what it describes as each region's "most distinctive ingredient", the blog looked at which ingredients often appeared in its recipes, compared to others from around the world. We went on holidays to France and Italy, but France always resonated slightly more. Again the # finesse # used in french cuisine not found in other cuisines (Refinement and delicacy of performance, artisanship.). In Normandy and Brittany fresh sea flavours rule, while in the southwest earthier foie gras, truffles and confit de canard are popular. Here are three dishes that spring to mind: French Boudin Noir versus Irish black pudding. As the blog acknowledges, many of the recipes are from US sources, and so the results of the study are skewed towards how Americans see cuisines from different nationalities. Although Americans may enjoy a chicken or turkey pot pie, it's just not as big of a thing here as it is across the pond.
It's the country of my fantasy, I see amazing foods and culture. We’d consider that to be a win hands down! According to the Independent, McDonald's french fries are made with fewer ingredients in the UK, so they taste soggier.

While a number of nationalities do succumb to stereotype, such as the German's use of sauerkraut, others are somewhat more surprising. First of all, the UK consists of four countries, which each have its own food culture and idiosyncrasies. On a recent trip to stay with family friends near Rome anti-Gallic attitudes were well in evidence. England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. But the French bourgeois heart is always there. Navarin often contains baby root veggies like carrots, little onions and turnips – again harking to the spring and the start of a new season of fresh produce. So, learn the terms and then Bon appétit! “A lot of my English friends’ families would have ‘tea time’ in the afternoon, but it was literally just like having a pot of tea and a little snack,”, , 25, told INSIDER about living in England as a kid. In 2014, for example, a Rough Guides poll saw Italian food finish in first place, with French down in seventh (but second in Europe). “So yes, alcohol consumption is higher, but the freedom to order a drink at a bar and then walk outside with it is a liberty Americans in the UK do not take for granted.”, “My favourite weekend scene in the summer isn’t the boisterous streets, however, but the sprawling parks full of picnic-goers drinking chilled wine and cold beers,” she continued. So that's a 2-1 win for the Irish! Provençal cuisine has been described as more Italian than French, while in parts of northern Italy you'd be forgiven for thinking you were in Austria of Switzerland. Brawn involves slow cooking a pig’s head in stock, then removing the skin and picking off the tender meat from the bone.

Of course many national cuisines rely heavily on the availability of certain ingredients – although that may not necessarily explain the difference between, for example, German and French food. In Italy regional differences abound, and Sicilian food, with influences from North Africa, Greece (and Normandy), is distinct from the buttery dishes of the north (whereas in most of Italy, olive oil is the fat of choice). In France several regions have amazingly strong terroir and culinary backgrounds, Alsace is one of them. We were hanging on the edge of our seats.
