Amazing culinary oddities Americans
We already told you about the glasses full of ice, three-liter wine bottles and other fads in American culture that the Americans do not even notice. In the same post, we'll discuss the sophisticated dishes and combinations of products, many of which can easily plunge into shock any of "our" rights.
Let's start with the near and dear to our hearts potatoes. Moreover, the Americans had never been cleaned before you cook, believing that in the skin hides the most valuable and useful. They went further and invented a separate dish, which is called - potato skins (or "potato peel").
If you are still unable to find in America peeled potatoes - you know, that, most likely, he got out of a tin can.
2. "ants on a log"
This creative installation is a celery with peanut butter and raisins. Considered healthy and nutritious snack, is especially popular with children.
The Americans are not satisfied with the taste of coffee. They love the taste of coffee with the rest - caramel, mint, pumpkin, ginger and so on and so forth. Should I mention that drinking this coffee should definitely on the move.
4. Cake "Red velvet"
To the coffee, of course, the dessert should be. That's just not quite clear why he painted in bright red? .. Especially if to taste it resembles absolutely nothing red.
5. The combination of incongruous
Roast chicken with waffles and honey or maple syrup - almost the most popular breakfast in the south of the United States. But our man will never understand ...
Do not give way to the chicken with waffles and pancakes in popularity of bacon and all the same maple syrup.
By the way, on the bacon - he sometimes chocolate. But here again everything is clear, because the bacon - it's almost fat. Ukraine Hello!
6. The melted paste
The American candy seems so clumsy that it is possible to use only pre-tan, preferably at the stake. If it is then put between two cookies with chocolate, you get S'more - a favorite entertainment in the campaigns.
But if the fire did not happen - you can just bake it from above, such as sweet potatoes. After all, there is nothing that complements the delicious and healthy vegetables like molten chemical sweetness.
Such absurd at first glance, the combination as pineapple and ham in the "Hawaiian" pizza, has long been commonplace and no one is surprised. But the Americans do not give up and continued their experiments with Italian classics. For example, as you is the creation of "Pizza Hut" with a mini-hotdogs on the perimeter?
8. The deep fried
In America love absolutely everything deep fried. It is desirable in batter. For many tasty food have to be crispy. Otherwise uninteresting. Size, as you know, is also important. This, for example, roasted turkey leg.
deep fried cookie Oreo? Ofcourse, why not!
deep fried pickles? You are welcome!
So this is ... We bet you'll never guess what it is. Because it is deep-fried piece of butter. On a stick. Why? What for? No answer.
9. Ice cream in soda
This culinary delights called Root Beer Floats. It is difficult to explain even that is very Root Beer, to those who have never tried it. Oh, very remotely resembles it our kvass. Now imagine that you are for some reason thrown in kvass ice cream ...
This "dish" that Americans proudly called pie, potato chips is a "Fritos" with chili and melted cheese on top. Is fed directly into the bag of potato chips. That's right, what all these conventions and plates.
11. Fruit ice
It is unclear why there is ice drizzled with syrup and why instead, you can not eat a normal ice cream or sorbet.
12. The cheese in the cartridge
Americans like things to be easy, simple, fast and convenient. Well, who does not? But here's the "easy" cheese in a spray can - it's still been a little too ...
Spam - a distant relative of our American stew. Its appearance is quite clear - during the Second World War, it was necessary to find a cheap alternative to meat. What is surprising is the fact that for an unknown reason spam has gained immense popularity in Hawaii.
Spam actively used in traditional Hawaiian cuisine and prepare from it all sorts of oddities. For example, sushi. In this case, using the bank as molds.
14. The sandwich with peanut butter and jam
The absolute classic American cuisine, there is little clear to someone else. Why do sweet even sweeter? ..
This apotheosis of American cooking we deliberately left "for dessert." Turducken, namely the so-called this dish consists of three words, they are the same - the main ingredients: turkey (turkey), duck (duck) and chicken (hen). In order to prepare this masterpiece, it is necessary to stick a chicken into a duck, which, in turn, have to stick to the turkey. As well as, most importantly, why they do it, we are afraid to even imagine.
