What says "American Food" to you?

Transplant_DK | Mar 31, 2011 10:20 PM

Living in a foreign country for years now, I'm always taken aback a little by what people who only visit the US occasionally (or only know it from movies and sitcoms) consider true "American Food" or American eating habits.

I'll be hosting a party for a small group of foreigners soon and would like to serve some dishes that would be different for them, but am having a hard time with the menu, so I thought I'd throw it out there and ask what American food means to foodies in the US, or foreigners who have some insights on it.
