If you could eat only one type of ethnic cuisine for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Hmmmm… I have a few favourite cuisines, so it’s a little tricky. It’s a bit funny because it’s actually the opposite compared with languages – I love mostly Celtic, a lot of Germanic and some Finnougrian languages but am not particularly in love with cuisines from these areas. – I don’t feel any inclination towards Mediterranean languages, but I really like Mediterranean cuisines, especially Greek. Also Italian, but Greek dishes are even yummier, and I love all those things like feta cheese and olives etc. I also really like a lot of Mexican and Indian dishes because I like things to be hot, and I don’t mind real real hot, to the point where sometimes people are surprised how much spicy food I can eat, 😀 I guess it’s genetic because my Dad is the same. Our Polish cuisine also has many absolutely delicious dishes, but there are also many that I don’t like at all and I’m not sure I could live my entire life solely on the thoroughly Polish dishes that I like, especially that most of them aren’t extremely healthy, my favourite Silesian dumplings for example, although perhaps if I ate that for every meal every day I’d finally put on some weight so my Mum would be happy. 😀 I think in general, I’d like Greek cuisine the most, but the big downside is that I guess it isn’t very hot in its nature. I mean sure, I could put chili or Cayenne pepper or kalonji on things but I guess that would no longer be true Greek cuisine, so I’m not sure whether that would be cheating or not. And not having any hot dishes at all would quickly get rather boring and underwhelming. So I think ultimately I’d pick Mexican.
How about you? 🙂
