    In the UK, we have French dressing but not Italian (probably call it something else). We call a certain vegetable by the French name courgette while in the US it is known by the Italian Zucchini (the latter does tend to be used in the UK in Italian restaurants).

    Last year on NBC's Premier League Football the English announcers had to apologize after the game for using the term 'fag' during the match after they were informed it has a different meaning in the U.S..

    Well made Hungarian goulash is to die for. In 50 years in the New World, I have not yet found a good one in any restaurant.

    What is in real goulash? I'm my family it was always just meat, shell pasta,.green pepper, tomatoes, corn and sometimes spinach. Of course that was more like Easy Texas goulash.

    There are several versions of what could be called "Hungarian goulash". My wife's recipe is pretty simple. Beef chuck cubed, black pepper, chicken broth (it's better than water), some flour, onion powder (my mother used to sautee onions instead and also used hot paprika). Could be served with potato, dumplings or spaetzel.

    One could have Lima Beans in Peru.
    Or one could have Brussels Sprouts in Belgium.

    I live in the burbs of Philly and have had the eponymous cheese steak in the city. It's good, but I'd lean toward the roasted pork sandwich.

    Sorry, but that site is pure horse hockey. The best milk shakes were always made with hand-dipped ice cream!
