Many people around the world, when asked to think of US cuisine, will tend to immediately think of fast-foods and fast food brands - such as cheeseburgers, hot dogs, and pizzas. However, there is a lot more to US cuisine than that - the United States is actually home to a rich variety of dishes and culinary traditions. For example: Here are some popular American recipes and dishes:
  • Chicago-style pizza - A deep-dish variety of pizza, originally from Chicago.

  • Chili con carne - A spicy stew made from meat (usually beef) and chile peppers. Some recipes also add other ingredients such as beans, onions, and tomatoes, although there are also people who adamantly say the recipe should not include such ingredients.

  • Clam chowder - A soup, created from a milk or cream base, and containing clams, flour, onions, potato, and bacon or salted pork. There are two main variations on the recipe:
    • A version of the recipe traditionally made in New York, sometimes known as "Manhattan clam chowder", which contains tomatoes.
    • A recipe traditionally made in New England, sometimes known as "New England clam chowder" or "Boston clam chowder". which does not contain tomatoes.

    New England clam chowder

  • Club Sandwich - A sandwich made using three layers of toast and two layers of filling. One layer of filling traditionally contains chicken or turkey breast. The other layer of filling traditionally contains bacon, lettuce and tomato slices. There are many variations on the basic recipe, some of which add slices of cheese or cooked egg.

  • Corn dog - A fast-food snack, traditionally eaten at fairs and other events. It is a hot dog, covered in cornmeal batter, and then deep-fried or baked. Corndogs are usually served on wooden sticks, and are usually eaten with ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, or a relish.

  • Congealed salad - A salad made from flavored gelatin into which are embedded fruit or vegetables such as grated carrots. Sometimes other ingredients such as cream cheese, marshmellows, nuts, or pretzels may be added instead.

  • Eggs Benedict - Half an English muffin topped with bacon or ham, poached eggs, and Hollandaise sauce.

  • Fried chicken - Chicken coated in seasoned flour and then deep-fried. Fried chicken is particularly associated with Southern cuisine and with Soul Food.

  • Grits - One of Southern cuisine's most famous dishes. It is a porridge made from maize, and made be eaten either for breakfast or a side-dish with another meal.

The soup is made from meat or fish stock and containing bell peppers, celery and onion. Dried ground sassafras leaves ("filé powder), okra, or roux (wheat flour and fat) are used to thicken the soup, and other ingredients usually include assorted assorted meat, smoked pork or sausage, and shellfish.

    Shrimp gumbo

  • Johnny cakes - Fried pancakes made from cornmeal.

  • Key lime pie - This is a traditional dessert originally from the Florida keys. The dish is made from condensed milk rather than fresh milk, because in the days before refridgeration, it was hard or impossible to obtain fresh milk in the Florida Keys. Key limes, which are small limes native to the Florida Keys, are also essential to the dish. The key limes, sweetened condensed milk, and egg yolks, are all prepared in a pie crust, and additionally egg whites are also often used to make a meringue topping.

    Key lime pie

  • Laulau - A modern adaptation of a traditional recipe of Hawaiian cuisine, and usually served macaroni or rice salad. Laulau is made from salted butterfish and meat (beef, chicken or pork), all placed inside a taro leaf.

    Jambalaya

  • New York-style pizza - A style of pizza originally from New York (and still popular in that city). The pizza is made into large very thin wide slices, which are folded in half when eaten.

  • Poke - A salad made according to a Hawaiian recipe. The salad contains raw fish, fly fish roe ("tobiko"), tofu, onions, scallions and tomatoes. It is lavored using chillis or red pepper, sea salt, sesame oil and soy sauce.

  • Pumpkin pie - A pie containing a pumpkin-based custard. The pie is particularly associated with Halloween, and is also popular at Christmas and Thanksgiving. Spices such as cinnamon, cloves and ginger are used from flavoring, and it is often served accompanied by whipped cream.

    Pumpkin pie

  • Shrimp Creole - A Creole recipe, this dish consists of shrimps in a spicy peppery sauce made from tomatoes, celery, onion, and bell peppers, and then served over rice.

  • Succotash - A dish with its origins in native American cuisine, Succotash is made from butter beans, corn, and tomatoes, which are cooked together in butter.

    Succotash

  • Tacos - A U-shaped crispy corn tortilla stuffed with various fillings. Typical fillings include ground beef, cheese, lettuce, sour cream, and tomatoes.

Product Description:
In recipes and reminiscences equally delicious, Edna Lewis celebrates the uniquely American country cooking she grew up with some fifty years ago in a small Virginia Piedmont farming community that had been settled by freed slaves. With menus for the four seasons, she shares the ways her family prepared and enjoyed food, savoring the delights of each special time of year:

• The fresh taste of spring—the first shad, wild mushrooms, garden strawberries, field greens and salads . . . honey from woodland bees . . . a ring mold of chicken with wild mushroom sauce . . . the treat of braised mutton after sheepshearing.

• The feasts of summer—garden-ripe vegetables and fruits relished at the peak of flavor . . . pan-fried chicken, sage-flavored pork tenderloin, spicy baked tomatoes, corn pudding, fresh blackberry cobbler, and more, for hungry neighbors on Wheat-Threshing Day . . . Sunday Revival, the event of the year, when Edna’s mother would pack up as many as fifteen dishes (what with her pickles and breads and pies) to be spread out on linen-covered picnic tables under the church’s shady oaks . . . hot afternoons cooled with a bowl of crushed peaches or hand-cranked custard ice cream.

• The harvest of fall—a fine dinner of baked country ham, roasted newly dug sweet potatoes, and warm apple pie after a day of corn-shucking . . . the hunting season, with the deliciously “different” taste of game fattened on hickory nuts and persimmons . . . hog-butchering time and the making of sausages and liver pudding . . . and Emancipation Day with its rich and generous thanksgiving dinner.

• The hearty fare of winter—holiday time, the sideboard laden with all the special foods of Christmas for company dropping by . . . the cold months warmed by stews, soups, and baked beans cooked in a hearth oven to be eaten with hot crusty bread before the fire.

The scores of recipes for these marvelous dishes are set down in loving detail. We come to understand the values that formed the remarkable woman—her love of nature, the pleasure of living with the seasons, the sense of community, the satisfactory feeling that hard work was always rewarded by her mother’s good food. Having made us yearn for all the good meals she describes in her memories of a lost time in America, Edna Lewis shows us precisely how to recover, in our own country or city or suburban kitchens, the taste of the fresh, good, natural country cooking that was so happy a part of her girlhood in Freetown, Virginia.
