For me, I have to say Italian. Not the kind of stuff you get in Pizza Hut or wherever, but real pizza, and fresh pasta dishes, with tomatoes, olives and herbs. Real Mediteranean cookery. How about you?

So now you've gone and made me think about food, my stomach has started rumbling, my mouth is dribbling just thinking of lovely dishes and all I got to eat is a bit of old bread toasted! Actually we eat quite a variety in our house, we have persian dishes (my exhusband is from Iran) and my kids love their persian food, we have African (my grand-daughters dad is african) food, I love their bread, We eat lots of roasts, piled up with fresh veggies, I love fresh pasta, lots of herbs. When I go to ireland on thursday I'll be eating lovely Irish beef, mmmmmmmmmmm can't wait. Oh and I love brioche mmmmmmm. It's no good I'm off for me bit of toast and a good old cup o tea!!

Oh - sorry! Isn't it funny how just thinking about food makes you get hungry? Well, it does with me anyway! Have fun in Ireland, and eat some soda bread for me! LOL!

Since I am italian and obviously grew up eating italian food - which I love- but there is one other that can compare... I would have to say Japanese food - hybachi- when they cook in front of you--- oooo that is one of my all time favorites- it is expensive to go to these places so my husband and i only go once or twice a year- thats probably why I crave it so much!!!! LOL

I guess that is probably right. It's like I adore alfojores (a kind of Argentine sweet), but you can't get then in the UK, so i have to wait for my man to go home and visit his Mother once a year to bring me some back!

Yup Italian is my favorite too. I live in Canadian and I was so disappointed when they removed Olive Garden's from our country. I loved that restaurant. My second favorite is chinese but I have to be in the mood for it. It is not something I would fancy everyday.

I think my favourite must be potatoes, I love them roasted, mashed, baked and chipped. I do like lots of foods though. Italian is lovely I like pasta and pizza too. I think my favourite countries food is Mexica. I like wraps and chilli.

For me, it's definitely Chinese, I love chinese food, we have a lovely little restaurant not too far from where we are and they do an 'eat as much you like' menu it is so reasonable and you can literally fill your bellies! I have prawn toast, crispy seaweed, crispy duck, sweet and sour pork, chicken and pineapple and special fried rice, all my favourite dishes. We always come out completely content and full to the brim! The chinese sure know how to satisfy me and my stomach!

I don't know any food I don't like. As long as I can tolerate the ingredients I think I'll be OK. My favourite is seafood, either Japanese or regular home made buttered shrimp for example.

I enjoy cooking pizza at home, its with my own pizza crust I learned while I lived in Europe. Here's the recipe, you can also make great rolls with it! Pizza and Roll dough: Makes 2 - 16 inch pizzas 1 package dry active yeast (2 1/4 tsp.) 1 1/2 cups very warm water (110°F) 4 cups all-purpose flour, more for dusting (or 18 ounces) 1 1/2 teaspoons salt (kosher salt preferred) 2 tablespoons olive oil To make the dough: Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and set aside (a Pyrex 2-cup measure makes for easy pouring; be sure the cup isn’t cold). Put the flour and salt in a food processor (or GLASS mixing bowl if hand mixing) fitted with the steel blade; process briefly to mix. With the machine running or stirring vigorously in the bowl, add the water-yeast mixture in a steady stream. Turn the processor off and add the oilPulse a few times to mix in the oil (mix well in bowl). Divide the dough: Scrape the soft dough out of the processor or bowl and onto a lightly floured surface. With lightly floured hands, quickly knead the dough into a mass, incorporating any bits of flour or dough from the processor or bowl that weren’t mixed in. Cut the dough into 2 equal pieces with a knife or a dough scraper. Roll each piece into a tight, smooth ball, kneading to push the air out. You can make this dough the same day or a couple of weeks ahead. Put the individual balls in plastic bags and refrigerate overnight or freeze for up to a month. To use dough that same day: If you want to make one pizza as soon as possible, put the dough ball on a lightly floured surface, cover it with a clean dishtowel, and let rise until almost double in size, about 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 450F To shape pizza: Put the newly risen ball of dough on a lightly floured surface. Dust the top with flour. Using your fingertips, press the ball down into a flat rounds about 1/2 inch thick. Lift the dough and lay it over the back of the fist of one hand. Put your other fist under the dough, right next to your first fist. Now gently stretch the dough by moving your fists away from each other. Each time you do this stretch, rotate the dough. Continue stretching and rotating until the dough is thin, about 1/4 inch, and measures about 9 inches across. Alternatively, use a rolling pin to roll out the dough thinly on a floured surface. Rub a bit of flour onto a pizza pan (or a baking sheet). Gently lift the stretched dough onto the pizza pan or baking sheet. Top the pizza, scattering the ingredients around to within ½ inch of the border. Bake until the edges are golden, about 10-15 minutes. Makes a delicious and simple pizza dough... easy to work with, great for kids! Pizza the next day: If you want to bake the pizzas the next day, line a baking sheet with a floured dishtowel, put the dough balls on it, and cover them with plastic wrap, giving them room to expand (they’ll almost double in size), and let them rise in the refrigerator overnight. To use dough that has been refrigerated overnight, simply pull it out of the refrigerator about 15 minutes before shaping the dough into a pizza. To freeze dough: Dust each generously with flour as soon as you’ve made it, and put each one in a separate zip-top bag. Freeze for up to a month. Bon appetit!

I find I am all over the place when it comes to some of my favorite foods quite honestly. But I find like you I am quite fond of italian dishes. I know that I have always been a big fan of pizza, as well as pasta dishes. I have to say that I can almost eat italian dishes with my eyes closed almost twenty four seven. I know that I am always looking for new recipes when it comes to pasta. But even though I may try to make it like they do in these italian restaurants. The food I make isn't quite as tasty as compared to some of the places I have gone for italian cuisine. I love trying the different sauces that they have at these restaurants. I know that me & my other half once in a blue moon will go to one of our favorite restaurants that serve food such as this. And they will serve you ceaser salad, along with bread until your meal has arrived. And trust me once the meal has arrived afterwards you almost have to have someone carry you out of the restaurant. haha. That's how tasty some of these italian dishes that they serve are. And of course I have always been a big fan of pizza all of my life. But I find it very difficult to come across a restaurant that serves pizza in which it is worth the money in thee end. We actually have ordered from this little italian restaurant far away from our home a few times. And even though we have to dish out a few extra bucks to get it delivered. It's definitely worth the money in the long run. The sauce that they use is to die for. It's not all to tangy, but it has more of a sweet taste to it.. That isn't to over-whelming. I find to many pizza places these days end up giving you pizza where the sauce is just to much for one to handle. I am more than happy that we don't have these type of issues with the place we have ordered from in the past. I also am quite of as well chinese food. I find it as well is difficult to come across a restaurant in which they sell chinese food that is worth the money. We've stumbled across one recently in which they make such amazing rice, as well as wonton soup, & dry garlic ribs. Even though they can get quite expensive they give you quite a bit for your money. So it's not like you are dishing out money & not getting enough for your money. I find the food is worth paying for. We actually used to order food from this other place.. And there food was never fresh. We ordered from them for years on end in the past but kept getting disappointed each time we ordered from them. So we decided to go else where when we had a few bad experiences with them. But they'd literally just warm up there food in the microwave or in the deep fryer & serve it to you.. The food would be so over-done that it was difficult to eat half of the time. It was disgusting. But I know that this new place we order from makes some quite amazing chinese cuisine. My favorites from them would have to be of course the famous wonton soup.. There chicken fried rice, as well as there dry garlic ribs.. I also am a big fan of chicken. I used to love KFC's chicken but I find them to be to over-priced. But also at the same time I find there chicken doesn't taste quite as good as it used to. I find they never give you enough meat & then charge you an arm & a leg. I love more than anything there classic fries & gravy. But even buying those two things can be rather expensive as well. In conclusion.. I find my favorite types of food would most definitely have to be italian, as well as chinese. I love italian more than anything because there are so many different dishes to choose from. And almost each & everyone of them are rather delicious. And don't end up disappointing you afterwards. I find with chinese food you have to be very careful which place you order from.. As it can lead to having some rather disappointing experiences in thee end. I find with italian cuisine I don't have quite as many bad experiences as I do compared to chinese food! . . Thanks for allowing me to share! xx
