Food tips you can trust
American cuisine has both a dull and exciting side:
Dull = Fast foods and overly processed grocery-store foods
Exciting = Regional and ethnic cooking - and steaks
Regional and ethnic cooking
Click blue links to learn my candid tips about them:
American cuisine is the most innovative major cuisine on our planet. This is not because Americans cooks are naturally more creative than their counterparts abroad. They're not. A prime reason is the nation's cuisine is relatively new. It is not as encumbered by ironbound culinary rules as in, say, the French and Chinese cuisines. The Americans have more freedom to experiment.
This has been particularly true with the regional Southwestern, Californian, and Hawaiian cuisines.
Land of plenty
America has so much land suitable for farming that it could support twice its population.
The arable land that could be used for agriculture is not wasted. Much of it is used by the cattle industry (which requires extensive grazing land). This has allowed meat eating to become a significant factor in American cuisine.
