Great article, Nobert. There was another you forgot to mention and it would’ve taken tastebuds faraway than ever, Former Yugosalv Repubic of Macedonia (Stuffed Capsicums with mince meat), Serbia (Cevapci – they are like meatballs only long like a finger and meat patties, they are irresistable), Croatia (Fish grilled on the barbecue with additions)
The Adriatic sea is a very popular destination and now is a main tourist destination. Bon appetit!

Pavlova would be a far more appropriate dish for Australia.

Any italian will tell you that Spagetti Bolognese is an American Invention.

Bolognese comes from Bologna, sure. But they don’t eat it with spagetti! Meat sauces like bolognese need flat pastas.

With a large amount of its population being vegetarian, India has a seriously mind-boggling array of vegetarian dishes in its culinary repertoire! Think of a single vegetarian food and you will probably get a long list of ways it can be prepared. So much for variety.Inspite of there being so much to choose from, there are some vegetarian dishes that are more popular than others.

what about Indian Dishes ? Hyderabadi Biryani, Chicken Tikka and many more are world famous, why they are not included in this article ?


Jan 31st, 2009

How could france be considered by many the best cuisine in the world when those so called experts are ignorant to the facts that it was the florentines who taught the french how to cook in the first place?
and secondly who of the general public know french foods? very very few..even i didnt know quiche was from france..Now ask who knows tacos, chop suey, pizza, chow mein, pasta, teryaki, minestrone, sushi, weiner schnitzel, ravioli, fettuccini alfredo, polenta, risotto, ceviche, fajitas, ravioli, paella, souvlaki, shawarma, couscous, pesto, ceasar salad, greek salad, tabouli, gnocchi.etc
No one knows french food except the rich who can afford that unhealthy creamy overpriced food.

there should be more irish foods on here


Apr 30th, 2009

I’ve lived in Greece. That doesn’t look like any Greek salad I had there. They use dried oregano no fresh parsely, kalamata olives not green pimento or black, green peppers not red and I don’t see any onions or tomatoes.

Many Hyderabadi dishes and desserts can takeover this dishes but at least Hyderabadi Biryani should come in Top Ten.

Hyderabadi dishes are very royal in look and excellent in test

Such a delectable piece…my mouth is watering.

The article is about the most popular dishes from around the world, but only states European ones. Hm? Interesting article, although quite lacking in ‘worldly’ variety. In as far as French food is concerned, Veeman says that it is only for the rich, and that it is unhealty. This is not true, whatsoever, because great French food when done right, is lite, not served in large quantity, but is very delicious! If you’ve ever had great French food, you and your bowels would come out the restaurant (or home, if you can cook it) feeling dreamy and passionate.

I wish this article would have explored the cuisines of Mexico and the USA, not to metion ever other place on this globe, besides only Europe. Oh, well, maybe next time?

Borscht is not a classic Russian soup, but a UKRAINIAN one. Shchi is a classic Russian soup.

Falafel is Egyptian, not Israeli…and Hummus is not singlehandedly Syrian, usually credited to Syria, lebanon and Palestine (the levant).
