Paella is not a "nationl dish" it's typical from Valencia

The only dish that can fit as national dish is "Tortilla de patatas"

They had to create a dish that doesn't exist for Italy because choosing a real one over all the others would cause a war.

u/scipio818 Aug 17 '22

I'm not Italian and knew instantly that Spaghetti alla Bolognese would create outrage.

As far as i know a ragout alla bolognese would be eaten with tagliatelle, or made into a lasgne.

Why not go for the obvious like pizza margherita.

I'm also confused about the German/Austrian ones. Either one of them could or should have been Wiener Schnitzel.

19

u/labakadaba Germany Aug 17 '22 edited Aug 17 '22

Wiener schnitzel could not have been the German national dish. It is definitely Austrian.

Edit: forgot the word 'schnitzel'

15

u/labakadaba Germany Aug 17 '22

But sauerkraut and sausages also isn't the German national dish. We don't really have one national dish and I think the only thing every German could agree on would probably be bread (which isn't really a dish)

3

u/scipio818 Aug 17 '22

Here are three that I would call German national dishes: Döner, Haxe/Eisbein or Brat-/Grillhähnchen.

Edit: Before anyone goes Döner is Turkish. Yes and no; the Turkish Döner is quite different and also nowhere near as popular in Turkey as the German one in Germany.

6

u/LARRY_Xilo Aug 17 '22

Haxe/Eisbein definitly not. Döner maybe. Grillhähnchen is wide spread but doesnt feel like a national dish and in a resturant that offers "german foods" I would not expect to see Brathähnchen. My best guess would be something like Currywurst mit Pommes or in general Bratwurst.

u/labakadaba Germany Aug 17 '22

Haxe/eisbein is mostly eaten in the south though isn't it? I kinda agree with the other ones, but i think it'd be kinda sad for our national dish to be fast food

I know it can be hard to admit, but other countries can make and sometimes improve Italian base dishes (such as adding different ingredients). See: chicken parm.

Edit: I know food is tradition, but all food was new at one point in time. The al pastor taco is now a staple of Mexico, but they were created by Lebanese immigrants in the 1930s, combining their historical techniques with local flavors. You're missing out on worlds of good food if you're unwilling to try new / adapted dishes created by other countries / people.

u/[deleted] Aug 17 '22

Irish Stew is basically served in tourist pubs (to be consumed while wearing a leprechaun hat.) It’s not a bad dish, but it’s old fashioned and quite heavy and I don’t think it’s particularly popular.

I find these maps make the false assumption that every country has some kind of traditional fixed cuisine or regional classics. Some do, but many don’t. Ireland certainly doesn’t.

Irish cuisine tends to maybe use local ingredients or play with the idea of them but it draws ideas, recipes and inspiration from everywhere.

Steak-Frites is also wrong for France.

Accurate to Germany overall. There's many different dishes for each region, but I think sausage is the only thing everybody could agree to.

8

u/DrLeymen Germany Aug 17 '22

The problem is, that "Sauerkraut and Sausages" is not really a widespread dish, in itself. Sausages are wide spread, but Sauerkraut is not eaten as much, as it seem to the outside. And the combination of both as a single dish is even less common. There are much better choices, that represent Germany far better, than "Sauerkraut and Sausages"

u/[deleted] Aug 17 '22

u/DrLeymen Germany Aug 17 '22

All the different variations of bread, Sauerbraten, and similar dishes, Sausages, of course, but not paired with Sauerkraut as its own dish, Rouladen, and all the different Schnitzel variants.

These are some, that I can think of, right now

I would say that asparagus is way more national food then Sauerkraut. But overall I would say nothing sells better than Currywurst, if you leave Döner out of it.

u/zirfeld Aug 17 '22

I don't think that's true. Maybe as an symbol for German food, but not as the dish actually eaten on a regular basis.

And thats not even counting for the bazillion types of sausages all over Germany. The Bavarian would say Weißwurst, others say Frankfurter, Thüringer...

3

u/[deleted] Aug 17 '22

What are you even trying to say with you second sentence? Sausages encompasses all of it, making it a pretty good candidate of covering everything. Also, it's about the national dish, you take that to mean a dish that is eaten on a daily bases? Good luck finding that. Maybe bread or eggs would be a good candidate according to that definition.

4

u/zirfeld Aug 17 '22 edited Aug 17 '22

I'm trying to say that a person from Bavaria wouldn't answer "sausage" to that question, but a specific type of sausage, as would people form other parts of Germany.

Also, it's about the national dish, you take that to mean a dish that is eaten on a daily bases? Good luck finding that.

That's excatly the point, there is no such thing.

I'd say Brötchen/Semmeln are a much better example for typical German food. While some of course eat bread or toast instead (or cereals), Brötchen are very common and widely available throughout all of Germany at every bakery and at the same time not that common in other countries, at least not in that quantity and quality.

Rye bread isn't exactly a "dish". However, lohikeitto (salmon soup) is and I would say that or pea soup is the national dish of Finland.

Rye bread is an everyday staple.

Rye bread is, however, what we voted as our national dish back in 2017.

3

u/Wide-Affect-1616 Finland Aug 17 '22

Wasn't it favourite foods as opposed to a dish though? I think of a dish as being a meal made up of different foods. Like, pork is a food but karjalanpaisti is a dish.

3

u/Linikins Finland Aug 17 '22

Probably just a case of lack of distinction between the two terms.

The finnish word for national dish is kansallisruoka (lit.: national food) instead of kansallisruokalaji (lit.: national dish) so you're bound to get different interpretations on what can count as a national dish.

I don't think any French will be pleased with steak frites as a national dish... It's very basic and no so much "cultural" at all!

That said I don't think there's one single good answer, normally it's the Poule-au-Pot because an important king made it the national dish, but as the article says it's been a bit out of fashion for the last few decades. There's still a bunch of dish that would go before steak-frite though!

Mămăligă isn't much of a dish (not to mention that it isn't unique to Moldova, Bulgarians sometimes call, or used to call, Romanians "mămăliciki"), it used to be consumed by peasants as a replacement for bread to the point it was a health issue in 19th century RO because a diet relying on corn that isn't processed in a certain way will cause Pellagra, due to a lack of certain nutrients. To make matters worse, it was eradicated in the '60s and made a small comeback, especially in the '90s (that should demonstrate how "great" the '90s were).

They should have gone with "Cușma lui Guguță", assuming desserts count.

I respect the willingness to assert that thievery is a cultural trait of theirs.

Yeah and Italy stole tomatoes from the Americas. Fuck outta here with that dumb shit.

Incomparable. Tomotoes are an ingredient, absolutely everything in chicken tikka-massala, from the name to the way it's cooked to the spice mix is Indian.

Or because it's more Indian than British, fish and chips seems more like a national dish.

Realistically, most of my British relatives would think Chicken Tikka is intimidatingly spicy and foreign. Fish and chips or Sunday Roast would be more realistic for what people actually eat.

The whole map is BS

u/ErrantKnight Aug 17 '22

Whoever made this map is going to hell, steak frites as a national dish for France, spaghetti alla Bolognese for Italy to pick out just a couple?

It's not the national dish of Iceland, it's just one unique thing people latch on to.

If anything it should be some sort of lamb dish, there's a reason more than half of all tourists eat lamb when visiting the country...

Kebab could be most famous but national dish of turkey is beans and rice. So, it is wrong.

Damn, didn't know Bigos was a national dish of Poland. Have eaten it many times, but never called it that, thought it was just some random cabbage and meat dish that was easy an cheap to make by my grandmother

For once Belgium is actually correct lmao

u/Paciorr Mazovia (Poland) Aug 17 '22

Żurek would be better for Poland but I guess bigos works too. It’s not as unique for us though.

u/Thin_Impression8199 Aug 17 '22

Ukraine is correct. borscht is a very strange dish, in fact it cannot be made a little, only a huge pot where there is enough for 6-10 people, but this is done for 2-4 people.

90% of Spain is outraged to find that paella is our national dish.

u/Talbot-Jaaskelainen Aug 17 '22

Nah, Finnish national dish should be kebab with french fries

u/Sendstorepatter Denmark Aug 17 '22

I don't hate stegt flæsk. I can eat it. But there are so many other Danish dishes I rather eat. I voted for a different dish back when there was a national poll to vote on our national dish.
