Nine Cuisines, One Dish Each

Perilagu Khan | | Apr 9, 2012 02:13 PM

The object here is to list your favorite single dish for each of the national/regional cuisines listed below. And please, let us not bicker and aaaaargue over the definition of American cuisine or whether or not kung pao chicken is a proper Chinese dish. This is for fun.

1. Italian: capellini with a sauce of tomato, bacon, portabella mushrooms, parsley and white wine

2. Indian: murg methi (chicken with fenugreek)

3. Mexican: enchiladas Suizas (chicken enchiladas in a cream-and-Swiss cheese sauce)

4. Chinese: kung pao chicken (lots of hot pepper and toasted peanuts)

5. Thai: gai ga pao (chicken with mint and loads of diced Thai pepper)

6. French: button mushrooms sauteed in butter, white wine and garlic

7. American: New York strip with a compound butter of thyme and lemon

8. Middle Eastern: chicken couscous (with lots of harissa)

9. Eastern European/Russian: chicken Kiev
