"Peasant" Food

kare_raisu | Oct 26, 2006 05:34 AM

About three years ago, there was a thread with this same title. I want to rekindle discussion of it.

I consider it an extremely interesting sub-genere of the culinary world. This is because of the inguenity that was born out of avaliablity of little or poor resources.

What I think is great is when the so called 'peasant' food becomes adopted by the nobility. As was the case when Louis XIV was traveling through Bretagne and came across crepes. Before you know it - guess whats on tonights menu at the palace of Versaille?!

Please contribute Peasant food of the world!
