UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

   “America does not have a specific cuisine. If we make a list of American foods lobster, shrimp, spaghetti, pizza, and hot dogs comes to mind. The fact that we have no specific culinary art is testament to democracy and ethnic heterogeneity.” – Sidney Mintz, anthropologist.

Despite the extreme culinary diversity, when we think of American cuisine, we instantly imagine barbecue, donuts, or vegetables. We ignore the big fast food chains, we know they can not instantly catapult us into American culture. For that we need to sweeten life and trips, we stop at the Crazy Donut in Timisoara. Here, happiness takes various forms and colors, but it is also inventive. Speaking of American cuisine, often neglected is the influence of the Italians who arrived on the continent in the late nineteenth century, what they had and continue to have. Thus, it is necessary to stop at Restaurant Misto, in Timisoara, the place where the flavors of the two cultures meet each other in a single plate: your plate.
