    ...................which would you choose and why?

    I think I'd go for Middle-Eastern, I know it's generalised but I can't decide between Lebanese, Jordanian, Palestinian and Syrian, and Iranian, all fantastic.

  3. oooh that's a tough call!

    if only one I think I would choose italian - olives, tomatoes, herbs, cream garlic, fish, pasta, antipasta mmmmm but ... not sure really as I love Indian, Chinese, English, etc etc and variety is the spice of life!
     
  4. I would have to choose Indian, I really couldn't imagine my life without curry and garlic naan.....
     
  5. Very hard to decide. However one cuisine that I could permanently leave out would be Mexican.
     
  6. Oooooh tough question!
    I love curries....but do I go for Indian...or Thai...or wait, what about the Jamaican and Singapore style...
    If I throw out Italian I never get to eat pasta again?....well most pasta....
    Where does chocolate come from?!!!! I'm not happy with a life without chocolate! Belgium? Switzerland?.. or do we have to go back to the Aztecs....so I keep South American cuisine?


    I think I'll keep the cooking I grew up with ...so that would be German...sort of....That way I keep German cakes (it's my birthday in just over a week!)

    I think I'd have to go mediterrenean - Greek or Turkish. There is a lot of overlap.
    Salads, tomato, grilled meats and kebabs, lots of sea food, yoghurt mmmmmm.
    I would miss Indian most. I am already salivating over the thought of my sagwalla and garlic naan tomorrow night.

    Indian. I'm with otter- I'd not miss Mexican at all.
     
  10. Ooooooooooooh!
    Thai? Indian? Lebanese (extended mix [​IMG])? Mexican would be on my list - but I worked for a real mexican lady in a mexican restaurant, so I know her family recipes.
    I don't know.... could I have 2? One for summer and one for winter?
    Summer would probably be Thai and winter English/French. So light curries, crunchy salads and seafood all summer and good hearty stews all winter!



    Or..................... cos I have a couple of Tudor cookery books I might just stick with English and get the best of all worlds! Yup, that'll do me, Tudor English!!
     
  11. This is a tricky one - whichever will allow me to eat aubergines and olives! Probably North African/Middle -Eastern. It has everything I love.

    I would probably have to stick with Italian.... but it's a difficult decision I have to say.
     
  13. There's no such thing as Italian cooking. Each region has its own distinctive cuisine.
    I could live quite happily on the north-eastern cuisine of risotto, gnocci and pecorino, or Sicilian fresh produce and desserts but baccala? No thanks!
     
  14. More lint, mini?




    (sorry, couldn't resist - it's a comment I have already made on another thread. Mini seems to be having a pedantic day [​IMG])

  16. Oh you clever mare, you!
    *wanders off wondering why she didn't think of that and whether it would be curmudgeonly to mention the word planet*

    How did I manage that?!
    That's what you get for trying to type and hold the world's wriggliest child.
     
  18. No, it happens to be true.
    Ask an Italian.

    Maybe the poster does mean all the types of Italian food?

    I could eat Mexican food happily for the rest of my life. I'd also happily live on Italian food (of any region) forever. Yummmm.
