I haven't read the entire topic, so I don't know if anyone has mentioned this, but in sweden (mostly in the northern part of the country I beleve) there is a tradition of eating fermented herring, "Surstr÷mming".
It's basically herring that has been sealed up in a tin can until it rots and builds up a pressure of stinky fart gas.
When it's opened, an awful smell of death sprays out and stinks up the whole neghbourhood.
It's known as one of the smelliest foods in the world.
I've never smelled it, but it's said to be really nasty.

I recall that EU tried to ban it once, because they thought it was unsafe.

I just enjoyed some wonderful homemade Cuban Caldozo. It's a soup made with Yuca, Calbaza (squash), pork, potatoes, garlic, onons, cumin, salt, and other ingredients depending on the cook. It is sooooo delicious.

My favorite though is called Ropa Vieja, which means "old clothes." It is a dish prepared with Stringed beef made with lots of garlic and red peppers. It is usually accompanied by morros y cristianos (moors and Christians) which is rice with black beans and yuca and platanos maduros which are fried bananas.

The stuff that dreams are made of...

EU tried to ban our traditional Polish meal called Bigos (fonetic spelling)

Its a kind of lettuce that is being prepared, in until it gets a brown color. It includes a few kinds of meats and vegetables. I like it ! It's great smile

They wanted to ban it, because it is good to eat for even 7 days from preparing, if you keep it in the fridge, and then boil it again, and again.

BTW, I'm not good at cooking

EU is looking into our traditional food like dried and smoked fish and pinnekj°tt "dried and salted rib of lamb" which is a common christmas dinner.

And we are not even a member of EU :X

Really? I didn't think there was anything bad about smoked fish...or anything that had been smoked for that matter.

Eu basicly seems to want to destroy anything being culture in individual countries.. Just look at how they wanted to ban the british taxies and i believe they actually managed to ban the british double decker bus.

In Maryland, of course, we eat nothing but crabs. wink

Well, not really. I've actually only had them a few times. Good, but I'm not sure what everyone is so fanatical about. The weird thing about eating crabs is that it's really not so much what the crabs taste like, it's more about the crazy salty spices they're covered in. My cousin ordered some kind of crab pasta at a restaurant and kept saying it tasted weird because it didn't have Old Bay in it.

They never banned the double decker bus in London. Are you sure your not getting your stories confused.

I should know I only live about an hour away from London and to be doubly sure I checked out the BBC website and found nothing there.

In my area, in France, we have the " Quiche Lorraine" which is known from beyrouth to Tombouctou ( or is it ? )

And, of course, the famous " omelette au fromage " grin

I know for sure that they wanted to ban it. And then i read lately about how the classic double decker is gonna be retired, which was rumored to be because of the new EU security regulations regarding public transportation.

San Francisco's got a lot of places to eat--ChinaTown is a nice spot, but Jack London Square has some great places, too--but then there's the Fisherman's Warf...

Seafood, Asian food, fast food, barbecue ...mmmm--I can smell the food through my hotel window...^^
