Dish of the peoples of the world over which the Americans had committed blasphemyPictolic
In the US seem to be focused the whole world at once: it is a country of migrants, each of which brought a piece of their culture — including national cuisine. Some dishes of different countries for the last time turned into something unrecognizable. Of course, some culinary masterpieces from this collection — more private "clinical cases", but, nevertheless, let's compare how the look of original dishes and what they have done with the Americans.
Left — sushi how to make them in Japan. The art of sushi a few centuries, and even modern interpretation (left) invented at the end of the Edo period. To the right is the American version. They just made them with chips.
Chicken Parmigiana what she is know in the US, probably a product of the Italian-American community. But the recipe is based on several classic Italian dishes such as beef Parma (cotolette alla parmigiana) and eggplant in Parma. What did the Americans do? They took something beautiful and totally ruined. This is called "chizza" — a sort of chicken pizza. No, thank you.
Baja fish tacos
There is hardly a more summer dish than fish tacos. This classic version of street food came to the States from the region Bach in the North of Mexico and southern California. They feed on surfers from 50 years. What happened with the Americans with this dish? They realized that there must be fish and tortilla. And then it all went wrong.
No region in the world can claim the invention of tomato soup. But in the Spanish province of Andalusia doing variations of gazpacho since, as the Moors landed on the Iberian Peninsula in the eighth century. To the right is a screenshot of tomato soup American. The girl just heated up a plate of tomato ketchup in the microwave. The hostess on a note.
Temaki — another very popular kind of sushi where all the ingredients are put into a cone of nori. The dish is eaten with hands, not with sticks. Why do Americans some seaweed, when there is a wonderful ice cream cones?
Traditional Mexican tacos
The exact origin of the modern Taco unknown. Most agree that they appeared in Mexico, perhaps even before preplate Europeans. To the right is an example of a joint use of the words "Taco" and "Metel" (blizzard) that can never be put side by side.
A dish called "pizza", has evolved over the centuries. Pizza appeared in Naples in the late eighteenth century, and cheese in her for the first time added to the end of the XIX century, when a chef named Raffaele Esposito flavored pizza with red tomatoes, green Basil and white mozzarella in honor of the flag of Italy. What made pizza Americans, even as it is embarrassing to talk about.
Creole sandwich "in battle" with shrimp
In fact, this dish is American by birth and belongs to the Creole cuisine of Louisiana. It blends the products and techniques of cooking from different regions, including France, Spain and West Africa. Sandwiches "in battle" come with different fillings, but the most traditional version is with grilled shrimp and oysters. Modern and apparently very lazy version of the dish — "let's just put the chicken nuggets in the bread, let's call "in battle", and no one will notice."
Stuffed with Chile from Mexico
The traditional version of this dish — just roasted chili from Puebla, stuffed with meat. A more modern version usually includes a soft white cheese from Chihuahua or Oaxaca and watered sauce. But what is right? More like the already digested food. So pervert stuffed peppers — this should be able to.
Traditional French parfait is a frozen dessert, reminiscent of an Italian Semifreddo. The name of the dessert is translated as "excellent". Initially, it was more like soft ice-cream, not cream puff-fruity variation which later became popular in the United States. Right — American parfait. Yes, the BBQ sauce because why not.
German sausage bratwurst
In Germany argue which of the regions is the true home of these wonderful sausages. And Bavaria, and Thuringia have a legitimate reason to consider themselves the birthplace of this dish as there is there supporting documents that dated to the beginning of the XIV century. In 1313 the Council of Nuremberg decided that sausage real only if it is Packed with pork mince. There was nothing said about the gummy bears. Sausages on the right in the photo include them.
Middle Eastern hummus
This simple dish is made from tahini and chickpeas and it was invented in Egypt in the thirteenth century. It is a fundamental part of the Lebanese cuisine and is popular throughout the middle East appetizer. And in other countries, I love hummus. Hummus in the US — it is on the right. What could be more natural and authentic than the food, which keeps the form of tin?
Devilish eggs — dish more ancient than you can imagine: first mentioned in the Chronicles of Rome IV century, but the modern version is mentioned in the XIII century Spain. This is a popular appetizer in many European countries, especially on the holiday table. In the US, it was turned into a pathetic, selling in sets DIY.
Traditional Japanese ramen noodles
Although ramen has become synonymous with Japan, some experts argue about its true origin. It is likely that ramen is originally a Chinese dish, which came to Japan sometime between the seventeenth and the beginning of the XX century (depending on who you ask). Made with ramen Americans? Fried in butter, coated with cheese and cut into pieces.
The tradition of using tortillas to wrap foods, originates in the pre-Columbian era of Mesoamerican tribes in the territories of what is now Mexico and Central America. The origin of the modern burrito, a little mysterious, but it probably appeared in Northern Mexico or southern California in the XVIII-XIX centuries. Burrito in America today — is a formal observance of the forms in the complete perversion of the content.
English mashed potatoes
The first recipe for mashed potatoes came in recipe book 1747 called "Art of cooking" (The Art of Cookery) pen English author Hannah glass. This dish has become traditional for the UK and the USA, and often adds a festive table.
If you can make food automatically squeezed out of the machine, most likely, the Americans will find a way. And the potatoes did not escape this fate.
French cheese plate
The relations of the French cheese for many centuries, and the cheese became a symbol of French identity. According to tradition, after dinner and before dessert is served at least three varieties of cheese. Americans don't bother: just cheese just on the plate.
Teppanyaki — a new addition to the long history of Japanese cuisine. It was first introduced in the 1940‑ies in the restaurant chain Misono, where they began to prepare food in a more Western style, frying meat on teppan iron pan. The Teppanyaki grill is often confused with hibachi, where coal is used and there is an outdoor grill. Teppan in the United States is as pictured on the right. You can use only the first letters of the names, but no.
