There are stereotypes about food all over the world. Usually French cooking is considered the best in the world and Italian food is greatest of all time and then there's British food, which is apparently really bland and horrible.
But it's not.
American food. What is it exactly? I'm not talking about Hamburgers, Pizza, Hot Dogs or Apple Pie (which is actually English itself) as they were all created by immigrants. What is 'home-style' American food like? Well, it's almost exactly the same as British food, even might be a little blander!
American food has quickly gained a bad reputation thanks to fast food giants such as McDonalds, Burger King and KFC. Nowadays, many non-Americans think of American food as being nothing but copious amounts of salt, fat and grease in a bun with something that didn't begin life as a humble potato. Is this fair? Perhaps, in a small way.
What do you think? Is American food really as good as Americans think it is??
