American food and cuisine reflects the history of the United States with plenty of diverse cuisines from across the country. American food also includes lots of European influences, particularly German, and many from the rest of the world. Over the years, chefs have adapted their recipes to suit local tastes. As a result, many American dishes taste amazing and are often quite different to their European counterparts. They are certainly worth trying.

American food is far more varied than the common image of dishes like hot dogs and hamburgers portray. Many traditional US dishes such as 'Clam Chowder' (a delicious thick clam soup that originated in New England and is often served in a sour dough ball) are very popular the world over. The country is also famous for its steaks and also it's range of quality fish (freshwater and sea fish) and wonderful sea food dishes. Traditional Cajun cooking from Louisiana is also popular and usually features a main dish, a tasty rice dish (often with sausages or shrimps) and a vegetable dish. Pork and shrimp are particularly popular in Cajun cuisine, as are celery, okra (gumbo), bell peppers, onions and rice.
