Did you grow up with an ethnic food?

Like for me, i grew up on german food due to my grandma being from germany. She came to america as a child.

  • Yes, Mexican food. Lots and lots of Mexican food. I grew up on the Texas/Mexico border so that was a staple food for us.

    My mother was not a stellar cook but my father was

  • My family is of Italian and Irish descent, but the most ethnic food we ate was Polish. My great grandmother was friends with some Polish ladies and they taught her how to make kapusta (spelling?) and awesome pierogies. YUM.

  • yes, i remember eating my uncle armond's spicy spaghetti, i thought it looked weird with actual leaves in it (now i know they were bay leaves) but damn, that shit was good. both sets of my grandparents were born overseas so i grew up around two different ethnic palates (italian & german)

  • Polish and Norweigian. I am half polish half French (don't really remember eating French things though). I grew up in a heavily Norweigian area. I love polish sausage with sauerkraut.

  • Is processed an ethnicity?

    If it is, that's what I grew up with. My one grandma had more German food in her repertoire, but it wasn't really passed down to her kids. I still have some of her recipes, but it was more dessert stuff than meals.

  • Not unless you count pierogi and kielbasa (Polish). We had a lot of lasagna, too (Grandpa's 1/2 Italian)

  • I grew up in southern Louisiana. So, although I personally don't consider cajun & creole cuisine "ethic", to me it's just food. Every where else in the country, it's considered that way.

    Answer by 3libras at 7:43 PM on Jan. 31, 2014

  • Nope, not really. Just your traditional southern food.
