Everywhere. Anyone claiming only one country or culture produces the best food is either far too chauvinistic or needs to broaden their horizons

You are so right. The truth is, most people have tasted the cuisine of relatively very few countries. So while I'm at it, let me put my plug in for Caribbean food: cou-cou and flying fish, pigeon peas and rice, jug-jug, oil down, jerk pork and jerk chicken, bammy, ackee and saltfish, goat or mannish water, fish cakes and the best tasting "lick down" soup you'll ever have



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie

I realize that. But all I'm saying is that there is good food around the world, it isn't confined by one country's artificial borders

Re: Where does the best food come from?

Okay, if not Hungarian... I vote for Greek and Italian food.

My favourite food is pizza.

Never ever give up
