The best kitchen in the world ???
« at the: September 23, 2002 7:46:04 p.m. »
Hello,

nice that there is such a forum here ...

What interests me at the moment, after REGEN discussions with friends:

What are the best kitchens in the world for you?
Which food did you particularly appreciate while traveling?

For example, I think French cuisine is grossly overrated!

My personal hit list:

1. Southern States / Cajun (spicy)
2. Creole cuisine (racy)
3. Turkish cuisine (very varied)

My wife would swap number 2 with the Indians ....

Hello Helmi!

Hmmm, the answer to your question is difficult to rank ...

So right now it is with me:

  • The undisputed number 1: Thai cuisine
  • 2nd place: Indian cuisine
  • 3rd place: Italian cuisine (especially pasta and desserts)
  • 4th place: The Arabic / Turkish / Lebanese cuisine


Of course I also like Creole, Cajun - actually I try everything that is exotic.

Restrictions:

Mexican is not so much my cup of tea, I just crave it every now and then.

French cuisine may be good, but if it were affordable here in the restaurants. I often think of them as simply overkandied (foie gras, Bresse chicken, etc.) ...

I don't really like Chinese cuisine anymore (at least not in restaurants in Germany) since I know Thai and cook in a wok at home.

And after all the exotic delights, my mother's Rhineland home cooking always tastes good ...

Hi,
why such difficult questions late in the evening
Here is my solution:

1) Thai
2) Italian
3) Greek

And it tastes best at home when my partner cooks - everything you can imagine and wishes he takes into account

There are only a few answers, but the Thai cuisine has done it to you.
I don't even know them - what's so special about it?
Spicy is good, I like that - what else?

Does anyone know good links with recipes or other information about Thai cuisine?

So recipes, you can easily find something yourself ...

But what is special about Thai cuisine:

- Everything is freshly prepared and many things are only cooked for a short time.
- Tropical intense herbs and spices become very
beautifully combined and result in true taste miracles.
- You have to know that you can get from certain dishes
Fish out spices before eating: The Thais
always laugh wrong when we long noses the red ones
Eat chilies bravely .... Likewise in the delicious
Tom kha gai brought out the galangal and lemongrass,
because you just can't eat that. Just like with us
Bay leaf or the cloves in various dishes.
- Just sharp is actually nothing, the reference to the sharpness
both the Thai and the Indians find it almost an insult.
The food is "zesty" or "spicy", though the sensation
the sharpness is quite different. The Thai are already fans
of red chiles ... That heat and the spices are
simply perfectly adapted to the tropical climate: that's how it comes in
one even at high temperatures and humidity
quickly going.

Oii, that's not that easy to answer!

For me they stand
- Thai
- North Indian / Pakistani
- Italian
- arabic / turkish etc
Kitchen on an equal footing as absolute hits next to each other.

Other kitchens also know delicious dishes, but not so many

I also consider French cuisine to be very overrated (far too heavy, too fat, too few spices and herbs, also too expensive and unhealthy).
I also don't like Japanese cuisine (especially way too salty and all that raw stuff - yuck).
I think the Chinese cuisine is mixed. Most of the time it's mediocre, and North Chinese cuisine is actually quite crude. The canton and especially the Sechuan cuisine is often considerably better.

Overall, however, I generally think it's best to get involved with the local cuisine when you're traveling. This also applies to breakfast!
That means for the Italian cappuccino while standing as well as for the noodle soups in Asia or the fried potatoes with bacon and egg in Miami.

My hit list:

Thai cuisine
(To Michael's contribution: if you really eat Thai, not for tourists, then you will be baffled by the spiciness)

Arabic, Persian, Egyptian cuisine

Hello,

Nobody has jumped on the topic for a long time, but I just stumbled upon it. And would like to break a lance for France right away. I am passionate about cheese, and I cannot avoid France. I see it the same way with wine: For me, the best thing about red wine is a Burgundy (with white wine, nothing beats Riesling for me, and it's usually best from Germany).

I can understand that Thai cuisine has so many friends - hardly any other can compete with the variety of flavors and aromas.

Basically, however, I mean that you will not get very far with the classification of kitchens according to national borders. "French cuisine" often refers to the high kitchen, e.g. B. with foie gras, which can then be found on the best-harvested menus around the world (if the chef is not in line with the "Euro-Asian" trend). But if you turn to regional cuisine, it looks very different: How do you compare the cuisine of Alsace with that of Provence, for example? It is similar in Italy, where cooking is done very differently in the Alps than in Sicily. Or what is "German cuisine"? Kale with Pinkel and Bregenwurst or Labskaus (which, as a native of Lower Saxony, is one of the delights)? Hardly anyone from Bavaria or Baden knows what this is all about.

Hence my favorite cuisine from 1 to infinity: a regional cuisine that is based on the seasons (no asparagus in November), relies on fresh ingredients (from the region), treats them gently and adds fashionable nonsense from "on", "under", "on", "Dialog", "Trilogy" or similar avoids.

Greetings and continue enjoying your meal
Christof

Mmh a good subject.
For me, Thai and Italian are actually equivalent.

The best Asian food was in Singapore. We were there for 3 days and had the "Loose" with us. He only listed restaurants for pages. And contrary to our other habits on vacation, we had to eat extensively at lunchtime and in the evening to try only a fraction. Delicious!

And after all the exotic, then at home Kässpatzen and a wheat beer!

I only think 2 regional kitchens are really outstanding and good:
1. Thai
2. Italiensich (And by that I don't just mean pizza and pasta, there is a lot more ...)

I have to join the majority here

1. Thai (also Vietnamese, as it is very similar to Thai cuisine)
2. Italian, especially in southern Italy (fish in lemon sauce and the pizza in
Naples)
3. Turkish, especially the variety of cold and warm starters, so delicious

Hello Helmi,

Since we have not yet got beyond Europe, I can only have a say in the kitchens of European countries. Spanish, Croatian and Italian cuisine are among my favorites here. We always ate excellent in these countries and never had bad experiences.

However, I like to cook Mexican and Chinese, although the latter in China no longer has anything to do with what we cook here. According to stories, there is no baked duck with bamboo shoots and soy sauce or sweet and sour soup with chicken strips and gals noodles (oh dear, I'm hungry again and that at this time, hihi). Unfortunately, I don't know what Thailand is like. But I would like to know

Best regards
Nicky

For Päffgen and Mühlen I also leave a lot behind ...

Otherwise I would like to break a lance for a kitchen that has not been mentioned so far (but also has a damn stupid name): Crossover, Fusion or whatever-kitchen! So everything you get in countries with a strong immigrant culture (Australia, New Zealand, California, Südstadt ...). A partly great mix of Asian, European and regional cuisine!

Hello!

So I haven't heard the latter "kitchens" either ... but it doesn't sound bad ...

My favorite food is ...

Italian
Spanish
Mexican


Although I only always eat the latter here in Germany and of course I don't know to what extent it deviates from the "real" Mexican food ... everything is a bit spicier there ...

What I don't like at all is Indian - and I can't really make friends with the English food either ...

Best wishes
Manuela

Hi!

I think my mother's kitchen is very good. But to come to the other kitchens, I like Thai, as has been mentioned quite often, and then also the German cuisine. I don't think that's bad either.
