      I like northern European food. Bangers and mash on a cold day with a pint of lager is heaven.

            This is unironically pretty freaking tasty, especially for a dish that is made by soaking meat in salted water for couple days and then having it outside during late winter/early spring for month or two.

                As Spanish im feeling insulted by your ignorance

                I can’t even think of an example of Iberian cuisine.

                Ok, in Spain every region has at least a traditional plate and a dessert. Try to collect them all.

                Spanish cuisine is similar to frechn but with some small differences. Im living in germany since 6 years and I miss it a lot because almost all the spanish restaurants here arent really spanish (meatballs with tomate as tapa? what is that? why arent I receiving free food with my drink? Thats what tapa means)

                I have seen the recipe for churros that you are using in America. Are you nuts? Churros are only flour with boiling water. Why are you adding eggs or butter? Churros arent a cake. Just flour + boiling water, extrude that shit to pop the internal air and fry that shit.

                So, for other tradictional recipes (search in wikipedia for translations):
                -"Pollo al ajillo" (chicken with garlick)
                -"Patatas al ajillo" (potatoes and garlick)
                -"Migas" (old bread fried with olive oil, with things. In some regions its fruits, in other its eggs and bacon and other meats)
                -"Duelos y quebrantos"
                -Huevos rotos (pommes with egg and serrano chicken)
                -"Fabada asturiana"
                -"croquetas de jamon"
                -"Lentejas con chorizo"
                -"Ensaladilla rusa"
                -"Filete ruso"
                -"gofio"
                -"papas arrugadas con mojo picon"
                "Pulpo a la gallega"
                "Potaje"
                "Empanada gallega"
                "Flamenquines"

                    that has nothing to do with being from america, that has to do with you not traveling or living in the middle of nowhere. Anyplace with a population will have spanish restaurants.

                        I’m sure you guys have restaurants in America but I’ve never seen one. It’s a shame too because what I’ve seen of Iberian cuisine looks delicious. I think it’s because Spaniards and Portuguese tend to go to South America if they move to this side of the pond.

        Before people here start bitching about the origin of recipes, it’s not about the food being original from there, it’s about its taste. Iberian cuisine is tasty af, and it ranges from excellent meats to excellent fish, bread and everything milk related is top shelf (at least in Portugal) and you can get a decent meal that doesn’t include anything fried almost anywhere. The best places for food are hands down the Portuguese islands Madeira and Azores (Sao Miguel)

      redpill me on southern german cuisine

      • #96813
        Anonymous
        Guest

        It is made from mostly the same stuff as northern european cuisine, but made to taste good. Rich sauces, onions and bacon (sometimes garlic), hearty meat dishes. Alpine (or alpine-inspired) cheeses. Wine (doesn’t grow in the north), the best beer in germany, fruit brandies (doesn’t grow well in the north). Steamed buns for dessert, or the entirety of viennese pastry if you consider that germany (either way, it has spread in south germany far more so than in the north.) In the west there are french influences. Oh, did I mention the lye pretzel originated in south germany?
        As for why that is…

          Cool picture, saved.
          Question: where is the border between wine and beer? I read early Hesse (Peter Camenzind), the main character is like a Swiss, when he comes to the village to his father and they go to the cellar to drink wine. Why can I see Swiss wine but not beer? It seems that according to the climate, barley should grow well there, and grapes only in some places.

            For quick reference.
            Switzerland does produce wine in the lower regions (and imports it obviously). I found a statistic saying they do not drink much beer, but rather much wine. Might be cultural influences from the surrounding wine areas (italy, france, southwest germany). They share the south german tradition for fruit brandies though.

              Is that what they call "Schnaps"? Although it seems that this word can mean any strong alcohol.
              I tried it once in a bar. Here, in Russia, it is imported a little, but it is quite expensive.

                I saw some definition on the internet that schnaps is any purely distilled beverage, which sounds about right. Fruit brandys are also called "Brand" ("burnt") or "water".
                >it is quite expensive
                Probably paying extra for the import from germany. Farmers made them in their backyards when it was legal (still do in the balkans), it shouldn’t be expensive.

                  Yes, excise taxes. Plus, suppliers inflate prices: "This is Elite Alcohol !!!!!". The same thing with Italian "grappa", just grape vodka, in our Caucasus the Georgians call this "chacha". Waste after making wine fermented, then they were distilled and purified. "Grappa" costs at least five times more than a good Georgian chacha.

              Beer is consumed more in Spain than wine nowadays, unless this map is meant to be traditional drinks only.

      Wormer the climate, better the cuisine.

        In relatively warm and dry climates, more aromatic plants with essential oils grow close to the ocean, so meat and fish are mixed with vegetables and various spices, which gives "good" cuisine. In the north we have meat, grain and a few types of vegetables, sometimes berries and mushrooms. You can’t cook much of this.
        During the Soviet era, Georgians were considered the greatest gourmets in the Union. They have warmth – there are aromatic herbs and various vegetables, fruits, there are mountains where cattle and sheep graze, there is a sea, although they do not eat fish very much like Christians – they make excellent wine. All together it gives excellent cuisine, but maybe without seafood delicacies.
        I even think you can make a chart – on one axis the type of climate, on the other axis the type of cuisine.

        Yes, this is largely true. Of course the connection is not direct. Inhabitants of deserts (very hot climate) are limited in food and have to be content with little.
        I don’t know about the equator. It seems to me that the inhabitants of the equator, despite the abundance of fruits and edible plants, are becoming too lazy for serious cooking, or maybe in a very humid hot climate they simply do not want to cook a lot – everything quickly deteriorates. So the priority is for the inhabitants of the subtropics.

      British food that doesn’t originate in wartime and post-war rationing is great and German food is also great.
      Scandinavian cuisine does seem to be genuinely lacking but that may just be my ignorance.

          Grains and sheep they had aplenty, but very little by way of spice or fruits and non-starchy vegetables. When Britain was a Roman province that was easily remedied by simply requisitioning some food from the southern provinces which could then be speedily shipped to Britannia via the Empire’s extremely well-organized logistics network that spanned from the North Sea to the Levant. If Post-Roman Britain wanted those same amenities they had to procure them via trade at much higher cost and in lower amounts. Hence people living there learned to do without. The temperate climate severely limits growing options because the warm part of the year didn’t last as long.

      At least the Irish have an excuse, the vast majority of their population spent 800 years with fuck all options for what to eat thanks to being subjugated on top of stuck in a climate that isn’t conducive to the growth of many types of plants, and the parts of their society rich enough to afford better were culturally poisoned by a series of foreign invaders with shit culinary heritage.

      What excuse does Britain have, with the greatest empire to ever exist? Or Denmark for that matter, or Sweden even?

        Living in shit tier environment that makes growing most of stuff (i.e. spices) that people associate with good food hard to impossible combined with need to ensure that the food produced lasts long time. Add in protestant food culture that basically encourages you to eat as bland shit as possible and it is no surprise that the local cuisine isn’t exactly world famous outside of IKEA meatballs.

      "Tasty" food is a luxury, not a basic requirement. In harsher climates and with a sparser and poorer population, people have less time and will to develop frivolities that are not necessary to survival. It’s a cultural difference that developed because of the different environments.

      Steppe derived individuals have greatly diminished tastebuds and Steppe ancestry is also associated with disorders that make the individual prefer bland foods like saurkraut and rye bread even when given a plethora of modern food choices.

        These are both acquired tastes because they have a strong flavour.
        Modern Mediterranean food is generally much more accessible than a lot of traditional Northern European food.
        People don’t avoid Andouillette or pickled herring because of a lack of flavour
