Belated response--what is American cuisine (semi-master list)

cheesecurdsinparadise | Nov 18, 2006 04:34 PM

A while back someone posted asking "What is American cuisine?" At the time I was finishing up my master's thesis (on New Orleans cuisine) and didn't have time to respond. Anyway, I dug up a list I made for a traveller to the US a while back. While it is not a true master list, as it tries to list only the quintessential at a local, regional, or national level (thus omits things like Waldorf Salad and Chop Suey), it is a good sample. What else do you think is "quintessential" enough to be on there? (List to follow inside)
