culture background

What is “American food”?At first you might think the answer is easy as pie. To many people, American food means hamburgers, hot dogs,fried chicken and pizza. If you have a “sweet tooth,” you might even think of apple pie or chocolate chip cookies. It’s true that Americans do eat those things. But are those the only kind of vittles you can find inAmerica?

Except for Thanksgiving turkey,it's hard to find a typically “American” food. TheUnited Statesis a land of immigrants.
