How Does Your Ancestry/Background and Home Country's Background Affect Your Cooking/Eating?

So I am currently wrapping up a course that I am taking that is all about Food and Culture. For my final paper, I have chosen to discuss how the ancestry/background/ethnicity of Americans affects their modern day cooking. We hear so much about how people's cooking isn't what it used to be, and everyone just eats hamburgers and fries; but I have some serious doubts about that. Maybe it's just how I was raised?

But, it got me to wondering what Chowhounders are like...I regularly read about the amazing food that you all put out, and am wondering how your past (and your family's past) affects your present day cooking/eating?
