Just off the top of my head i would think the traditional Thanksgiving
day dinner. Turkey, potatoes, corn all 'new world' foods. Even with
regional variations, yams & sweet potatoes in the south, tortillas in
the south west, various sea food additions in the north west & north
east, is still, never the less, distinctively American as roast beef is
English or pasta is Italian and frogs and snails French.

Im not sure if BBQ is an American invention (the social event yes, the
cooking probly not) but it would be on the list of possibilities,
however its tendency to be restricted, in the majority of its use, to a
specific segment of the American socio - economic class system does tend
to render it less than a nation wide phenomena.

I remember seeing an Australian t.v. commercial ( i forget what the
product was) but the punch line was the Queen of England ending up on
the 'barby' rather than having it prepared for her crown and all, as
some sort of indication that the English don't BBQ.

I second the vote for apple pie. Even if it was influenced by foods
brought to the New World by immigrants, we have surely made it our
own.

Sheesh your own self. To date, there are about 6 or 8 different
"nominations" for "national food."

I thought Michigan was the state with the blueberries. In my life,
Minnesota is famous for lake fish ;-) Ummmmm, walleye....

South Carolina rice & Frogmore stew. More info here.--see also: Charleston



Heh. I live in what used to be called Frogmore. (Actually, there is still
a small area here known as Frogmore). The cuisine of Charleston leans more
towards French than Gullah/Geechee.

Frogmore Stew consists of a boil of locally made sausages (you may
substitute spanish style chorizo or spicy Italian sausage), corn on the cob,
shrimp, small red potatoes and various herbs and spices. Some folks even
toss in some freshly caught blue crab. You'll need a bucket to toss the
shells and cobs into and plenty of napkins!
