I thought I should mention a few more delicacies.
Fried tripe, boiled kidneys, raw oysters with hot sauce, raw clams with lemon, fried fish eggs snails and maybe some lime jello with a dollop of mayo for dessert. YUMMY

I made chili over toast, the hard way. It is also accompanied with chopped onions and shredded cheese.

I need to learn how to make chili. I love it. Not the canned stuff though. But canned is what I normally end up with. :(

I have a few recipes if you would like them. Note you need to know well ahead when you want to eat it because the fastest recipe takes most of the day to make.

Nope nope nope, Slade.
I'm making a traditional local dish for dinner....
chicken and thin noodles, kinda like a thick soup...skimpy on the broth. It's served over mashed potatoes
This is popular in central Iowa as well. My mother likes to experiment with the noodles. The thick egg noodles seem to be the most popular with the family members...

@Haertig 1 pound of ground beef, 2 cans of Bush's Chili Magic, 1 little tin of green chilies, and season to taste. That's the quick easy way and it's darn good.

When making from scratch, cook red beans instead of the Bush's beans and do everything else the same. Note that you may need more seasoning. I use lots of regular chili powder, a little hot chili powder, black pepper, a dash of garlic, and if I want a bit more heat I use a little crushed red pepper.

Chili is not soup! If there is enough liquid in the chili to make a splash when you drop a spoon I to it, you need to drain it. When you scoop it out it should plop into the bowl almost like dumping a scoop of mashed potatoes.

Grandma made salmon patties and she used the same brand in that pink can. As a kid, I didn't care for them but now they are OK. She also made patties from canned Mackerel, the same thing just a different taste and I didn't like those when I was a kid either.

The guy is from Chicago , set up shop in Mayfield Ky.
It's 100% Chicago , so is his pizza.
ACES CHICAGO PIZZA.

There's a Chicago guy in the little town up the road with a pizza restaurant. His pizza is authentic Chicago, as good as it gets. At lunch you can even order by the slice. I usually get a slice and a salad w/drink for $7.

His gyro sandwiches were as good as any greek restaurant in Chicago but he quit serving those. So few people ordered he had to stop. He ordered gyro loaf from Chicago which is expensive, especially if no one orders a sandwich. The same story with his hotdogs... A redneck town in Bama does have it's down side, the regulars didn't know what they were eating.

I have a sister in law out of the bayou area of LA.
She and my brother had just gotten out of college and were acting kind of snobby.
We invited them to diner but we had very little money and diner was going to be a challenge.
I had a shot gun, so I went out and got 2 squirrels and 2 grouse.
We baked them with plenty of butter and served them with rice with a few dried currents steamed in and peas.

We lit the table with candles and supplied some cheap wine and a few beers.

She said that was a gourmet meal and I felt like I had just fed the queen and we were found worthy.

Everything gets fried at The State Fair of Texas! Oreos, snickers, pats of butter, just to name a few. Really big deal to fry things that maybe shouldn't be fried😳! Always amazed at how many people are willing to try some of this stuff!

I dont know if anywhere in the UK has cultural cuisine any more, most people seem to live on takeaways and fast food, if the masses have a preference its probably Curry.
I like home cooked food. too many chemicals in the other stuff.
the only "takeaway" out here in the rural areas is Fish and Chips.
