Do you have a favorite cuisine?
Give reasons for your choices.

I'll start and say that my taste tends to veer toward:
- simplicity
- heat/spiciness
- garlickiness.

I like Mexican - always have - because of the use of the jalapeño pepper.
I like S.E. Asian and South Asian/Indian/Pakistani/Chinese for the use they make of the New World's chilis.

Indian/Punjabi stands out because they use the tandoor for roasting, and the ingredients are B-friendly: Lamb, Paneer, Eggplant, Cauliflower, Peppers, Ghee as the oil.
I also appreciate India's mastery of the panoply of perfumes available in the form of spices. A treat for the nose/palate.
So I can get roasted lamb cubes, with some spicy vegetable dish.

Southern beats Northern Italian cuisine for me. Why? I like the no-holds-barred use of garlic and peppers in the former region. Beef, fish, eggplant, parsley, mozzarella, ricotta - these also strike my flint.

Cuisines that do interesting balanced salads (sweet, sour/acid, crunch, bitter, spicy) will attract me: I immediately think of Vietnamese and Thai.

Having said that, there's a certain amount of globalizing that is being permitted today's chefs. Any cuisine can be adapted toward one's flavor preferences - Garlic can be played up, peppers/spices can be added, and different ingredients / accoutrements / accompaniments can be used to swing the pendulum in one's favored directions.

If I'm waxing nostalgic for certain special items, such as roast loin of venison, or terrine de lapin à la moutarde, then my sentiments will veer that way, toward the American West, the British Isles, Burgundy...

And - American that I am - sometimes only a medium rare burger or steak will do. As long as the beef is fine and properly cooked, I'm happy as...a clam.  

PS. All bets are off when it comes to one Palestinian chicken dish: Musakhan, so good it makes me cry.

For me it depends very much on the season- living in a country with 4 very differnt seasons  

I do like traditional Nordic cuisine with fish, pork apples, plums, root veggies, cabbage, onions, wild mushrooms,cream, sour cream/yoghurt, berries like wild blueberries,lingon,strawberries and raspberries, and the odd potato.
Often I gets a craving for that type of food in autumn.
Right now I tend to eat a lot of fried apples with onions and thyme (sometimes a little bit organic bacon( cause I am BAD )
Cabbage dishes, roast root veggies with yoghurt dressing...apple dessert - wild mushrooms on toast- as it has coóled down a lot !

In winter I tend to eat more french style food with soups, meat dishes with lovely creamy sauces.
as well as Indian food especially the ones without tomato and coconut milk

In spring and summer I love Lebanese and other Med. food - fresh veggies, cheese, olive oil etc.
I also like vietnamese food- but has never cared much for thai food- maybe it is all the prawns, chicken and coconut that tend to make me sick ?

Well Italian and greek food can also be nice at times give me anything with melted cheese

I love food that has lots of flavours- bit is not crazy with lots of chili

Italian,being raised on it and I love Indian, Chinese,Tai, French, Greek, Cuban, Japanese, some Irish, and some Brittish dishes. Oh and some Hungarian..My aunt is Hungarian.she's a good cook!  My reasons are that there are vegetarian options available in these cuisines.

I'm not a fan of Mexican or TexMex It's been done to death here in the US,. I do love BBQ though... Don't like Middle Eastern..except Turkish figs. Middle Eastern food is meat heavy..I ate at a ME restaurant because I had to for a fellow that was leaving and they served a big plate of grilled meat. gross. A big plate of vegetables steamed to death.. It was horrible.  Egyptian is the same.. Meat and more meat.

I'm surprised, Mayflowers, to see this re: the "meat-heaviness" of Middle Eastern foods. I find this cuisine to be supremely vegetarian-friendly. The primary oil is olive. It is loaded with beans (lentils, favas, garbanzos) and makes use of salads, eggplant, fennel, okra, turnips, leafy greens (plus all the "usual" ones, such as onions/garlic, peppers, green beans, tomatoes), and grains like bulghur, rice, semolina/couscous, herbs, seeds/nuts (sesame, pistachios, etc.), fruits: citrus, stone, fig/date, grape.... Plenty of yogurt and the dairy output of goats and sheep...And what other cuisine features, as its primary "street-food": Falafel - entirely vegetarian?? In fact, if I am seeking a vegetarian meal, I would choose Middle Eastern. If you search for "middle eastern" or "eastern mediterranean", paired with "vegetarian", you'll be inundated with cookbooks and offerings.
This is really baffling.  

Mex: Had some last night. For me it hasn't been "done to death", because it's a rare treat. I had carnitas and some cod-like fish, grilled - fajitas. Yummy grilled onions. A couple of times a year I go for this. Even have leftovers, plus "picadillo beef" to enjoy later.  

But, Mayflower - thanks for sharing. Your tastes run so far and wide!

Spanish or French. Nearly anything coming out of Jose Andres' kitchen. Duck confit, beef cheeks in demi glace,  paella nero di seppia, mussles in lavender and white wine...on and on.

Of course, I no longer eat this. Now it's fish in Asian sauce with rice and beans or bolognese sauce over rice pasta with manchego, spring salads etc.,  and I love it all.

Try as I might, I couldn't come up with a coherent answer to the question. I like any food as long as it's handled with respect and sauced or seasoned well. I think nearly anything "original" outshines "creative". Texture is as important as the balance of flavors. The seasons dictate a great deal of our cravings. Hunger is the best appetizer.

Spicey with diamonds and superfoods in it, preferably fresh. No pasta, no chicken, no over cooked beef, no over sweetened desserts.

Many areas of the country don't have the access to GENUINE( versus Americanized) ethnic cooking that the east coast or the west coast do. Just like "cajun cuisine" in many parts of the country hasn't the faintest resemblance to the real thing.

Excellent point.
I apologize: I live in a city where Cuisine is the municipal religion...to the point where my New York Ultra Foodie family was out here this summer learning a thing or two.
They went nuts for Vietnamese, which is common chow here.
They couldn't name one Vietnamese restaurant in The Big Apple.
(In all fairness, I couldn't name one place for a truly great pizza in San Francisco.)
I first discovered Vietnamese when I lived in Paris in the seventies: It's their "Chinese food".
So, yeah, gcg, point very well taken.

I also much prefer herbal rather than spice. Is this a low-acid A and AB thing?  The way some O's go for excessive heat has always had me thinking they only taste powerful flavors.

I love excessive heat, so it's not an A thing. If my eyes aren't watering, it's too mild.

A local exception is vietnamese cooking, there is a perfectly genuine vietnamese/thai resteraunt about 25 miles away. Most chinese resteraunts are run by vietnamese as is the shrimp and crab fishing fleets. For all of the Mexican immigrants locally there is not an authentic regional mexican resteraunt to be found. One claimed to be genuine by putting corn into the rice.

This may be an AB thing...  I like delicate, melded flavors rather than a dish that delivers a knockout blow...

Well, it's only fair to say that I'm not always in the mood for chilis.
And I appreciate a good Korma (mild Punjabi dish) and plenty of European, Mediterranean, American and other food that is simply herbed and/or mild, too.
But, from time to time, only heat will do - even in a mustard or horseradish or "peppery" green. It gives me a charge - a boost.
As for Os, Averno, I don't know. The majority of people I (and we all!) have known are Os, and they don't necessarily go for the hot stuff. In food, I mean.

Not this AB.  

Before the BTD, I loved spicy HOT food, the hotter the better. Mexican with hot sauce, Italian with tons of crushed red pepper(double-strength heat), super hot Indian food. The hotter my mouth got the better I liked it.

I am going to miss Atomic buffalo wings with blue cheese.  


Thank the Lord I love turkey, tuna and sardines.

Asian and Asian fusion....miso soup, vegetarian sushi, seared tuna or salmon, seaweed salad, lots of stir fried veggies, brown rice or rice noodles with veggies, green tea. Asian food suits my diet and suits my taste preferences.  I can even get an avocado salad, a mushroom/ wilted greens salad.  I love toasted sesame oil, wasabi...any type of fish cooked Asian style.   We've got some really great Asian restaurants not far from home... easy to find compliant meals.  What doesn't work for me or any
of my family members at all  Italian food. Can't have gluten pasta, can't have tomato sauce.  Never liked Italian food even when I could eat it.  The food is just too heavy and contains too many fried
and cheesy foods.

I think any cuisine that has good vegetables that aren't overcooked makes me happy.

But honestly, give me a bucket of good old American Kentucky Fried Chicken and I might have to do a happy dance!
(I do not eat this way, but it wouldn't take much to convince me to have one big greasy, disgusting pig out and then feel horribly sick afterwards)    And don't forget the biscuits,
the mashed potatoes, the cole slaw and a few ears of corn.  Then I'd be ready to roll over and play dead!

When I first started, I thought I would miss many things that I used to "enjoy"...  After having been following this plan for several years, and trying some of the now avoids, I can truly say I don't really care for them now.  Either they just don't taste good now or the pain after is just really not worth it.

Thanks for the input.  

I am fully committed to this plan and have been doing it fully since I got home from rehab.  I want to give it a full 2 months or so avoiding 'avoid's as much as possible to see how my body reacts. I already feel an energy boost and my sinuses are unusually clear. I still have aches and pains but I have abused my body badly over the years and hope that this will help heal it given some time.

I very much enjoy my turkey, tuna, sardines, etc. I don't need a lot of variety even though I will try my hand at a lamb roast.

You forget you're from California. The Vegetarian Haven. I should move there. California is the most
vegetarian friendly state in the union.  Here, the Middle Eastern restaurants all serve meats. Appetizer is a plate of hummus..about all I could have. I've tried a bean soup in another ME restaurant and I did not like the taste.. After trying to eat in 3 different ME restaurants and not liking the food, I've come to realize I just don't like ME food.  If I get the chance I'll try a ME vegetarian cookbook and see if I can enjoy the vegetarian recipes in it. Then I'll see.  I was surprised myself considering I love Indian food and most every other Asian cusine.  I've never tried Korean or Vietnamese though..

One of my doctors I work for is Chinese and a AB and he doesn't like vegetables. He only likes meat. He says he doesn't eat them... only the nori seaweed snacks. He's not overweight at all, pretty thin and it's interesting to note he's never sick.  I'm like what's up with that?

My mother never cooked like that. That is Northern Italian.. the fettucini with the cream sauces, alfredo..lasagna..  My mother's family is Calabrian. Very plain cooking. No cream, sauces, casseroles..Very peasant cooking.  Mostly Fish, poultry, vegetables.. some red meat on holidays and if she made pasta every 2 months it was a lot. She never made mannicotti, but she made stuffed shells on occasion. Rarely.  She made stuffed eggplant and didn't even use cheese in it. That's the way the Calabrians cook.  So you can't go by what is popular at Italian restaurants. Its all Northern Italian cooking.

BTW, Teachers should be able to eat cheese...

Hey, Mayflowers! Good to hear from you.
Born and raised in New York myself. Lived there, in the city, until almost 30 years old. Very familiar with the cuisine as served there.

1. Yes. Get a Middle Eastern cookbook and...thrive. Really good stuff in there for A's. Really good. In fact, I think you'll have a good time with this.

2. Restaurant-wise. The most basic "Middle Eastern" restaurants and delis serve a "Middle Eastern Platter" or "Vegetarian Meze" of rice-stuffed dolmas (grape leaves); baba ghanoush (eggplant); hummus; tabbouleh (bulgur/tomatoes, parsley, dressing); and a salad of cucumber/feta/tomatoes/olives. That's all pretty standard, more or less, and comes with tahini (sesame sauce) that can be heavenly. Pita bread is served with it.
Then there are additional dishes such as beet salad, couscous, a rice/lentil/onion pilaf that is very savory. This varies from establishment to establishment, but look around.
The meat counterpart to that platter is "shawerma" (spit-roasted meat, shaved off - to order - in thin slices) - usually lamb, but sometimes beef or chicken, or a combination of the beef and lamb: Ask. If you can eat yogurt, they're pretty bullish on it - in a yogurty soup, in dressings, and just as a major component in breakfast and lunch...
Depending upon how coastal the specific area is in the Middle East, there'll be more or far less fish. Greece, so sea-bound and -centered, is a wonderful locus for Eastern Mediterranean fish cuisine, with much intersection with so-called Middle Eastern. My vegetarian/pescatarian niece, also in the Food biz, aspiring to chefdom, and Bloodtype A, says Greek is her absolute favorite. Fall in love with it, especially as you love Calabrian.

Averno...not an A thing here either, like Drea, spice is nice and heat is neat!

I am sure I love Mexican because I have lived in SoCal my entire life. Mostly from Sonora. It is the first thing I want when I return from traveling!

I loved the food in France, all over the country but mainly the south.( This is where I had better Italian food than in Italy.. )
Love fish.
The best cod is in western Ireland! The best salmon is in Washington and Oregon!

I have to say my Grandmere's cuisine is my favorite! My "comforts."
She made the best soups, breads, roasted game hens in garlic, and fresh veggies with herbs from her garden. Oh, how I miss her natural culinary talent!  

I agree, GCG....if I want real Cajun I have to go to the bayous!!!
