Default Re: What ethnic group's got the best food?

no such thing. there are great dishes from pretty much every region/ethnic group in the world. I would be loathe to exclude any of them from my diet.

What kind of oil do you use in your Southern cuisine? Word is palm oil/coconut oil is status quo back in native Africa, but what about down here.

they serve grits and corn bread and all that other stuff YOU PEOPLE like(setting up for a cheesy caption pic of tropic thunder). the fried chicken they serve literally melts in your mouth and the koolaid gives you diabetes but it gives you a high. az cardinals go eat there as well as other famous people.

pretty sure you were talking to all of us, as it is a public forum. try private messaging next time if you dont want to include all of us.


and how are things like fried okra and blackeyed/purplehull/etc peas(domesticated in africa) not black cuisine. Same thing with cornbreads/grits?

They may not be exclusively black (especially today) but the origins of things like watermelon, okra and blackeyed peas is africa.

The term soul food became popular in the 1960s. The origins of soul food, however, are much older and can be traced back to Africa. Foods such as rice, sorghum (known by Europeans as "guinea corn"), and okra — all common elements in West African cuisine — were introduced to the Americas as a result of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, and became dietary staples among enslaved Africans. They also comprise an important part of American southern cooking. Many culinary historians believe that in the beginning of the 14th century, around the time of early African exploration, European explorers brought their own food supplies and introduced them into the African diet. Foods such as corn and cassava from the Americas, turnips from Morocco and cabbage from Portugal would play an important part in the history of African American cuisine.[1]

When the European slave trade began in the early 1400s, the diet of newly enslaved Africans changed on the long journeys from their homeland. It was during this time that some of the indigenous crops of Africa began showing up in the Americas.[2]

Enslavers fed their captives as cheaply as possible, often with throwaway foods from the plantation, forcing slaves to make do with the ingredients at hand. In slave households, vegetables were the tops of turnips and beets and dandelions. Soon, slaves were cooking with new types of greens: collards, kale, cress, mustard, and pokeweed. They also developed recipes which used lard; cornmeal; and offal, discarded cuts of meat such as pigs' feet, oxtail, ham hocks, chitterlings (pig small intestines), pig ears, hog jowls, tripe and skin. Cooks added onions, garlic, thyme, and bay leaf to enhance the flavors. Some slaves supplemented their meager diets by maintaining small plots made available to them to grow their own vegetables, and many engaged in subsistence fishing and hunting, which yielded wild game for the table. Foods such as raccoon, squirrel, opossum, turtle, and rabbit were, until the 1950s, very common fare among the still predominantly rural and southern African American population.[3]

black people food is mostly bbq in reality. Also, throw in some chitterlings, pigsfeet, and some hog head cheese and you are set. also, let me say something about common stereotypes:

1. Black people like orange and red kool-aid>purple(whether you believe or not it's true)
2.they like ribs>fried chicken
3.when we get catfish it is like a holiday
4.alot of black people throw up when they eat watermelon
5. we dont eat fried foods as much as we used to.
