@Lullabelle @Shermie Want to play a game? Give me a recipe or food to try, that you think a USA southern boy wouldn't like. And, I'll give you one, if someone comes through here with a recipe, lol (see previous post). And we'll play dare you to eat it! I can already tell you haggis is off the menu here, lol. But, only because there is no one I know that can prepare it properly and I wouldn't trust myself to do it. I just don't know the regional influences that can't be expressed in a recipe but still show up in the finished product. Actually, that's a thread all by itself: "What recipes don't translate well without knowledge of regional cooking?"
