What is your absolute favorite dish from your cultural heritage?

I always love sampling food from other cultures. One sweet. One savory. :)

edit: Just to clarify, cultural heritage refers to your ethnicity. (e.g. You could be born and raised in the U.S. but your ancestors are from Argentina)

      2. Steak and kidney pudding.
        Plum crumble and custard.

        1. Whiskey and beer. I'm Irish and German :)

          Jk. My family never really made traditional dishes from either side. So I'm going to say tri tip. I grew up in Central CA and that's what we had at every special occasion growing up, cooked low and slow by my dad on the Weber.

          2. Since I am three different kinds of American Indian and five different nationalities to boot. This is a tough one. Caldo Verde or aka Portuguese kale soup and Indian fry bread

              I got a big kick out of them selling caldo verde in the McDonald's in Portugal. :)

            2. I'm a So Cal rat (San Diego born and raised) and darned if I don't still love citrus. And avocado. Tastes best if you are still kind of salty and slightly sunburned after surfing all day.
