Never go to Minnesota. Why?

First, and aside: I am well familiar with how my European ancestors ate, and the long and storied tradition of things like Haggis starting as peasant food and becoming a national dish. But you know what? My family traversed an ocean just to live somewhere where an aristocratic dickwad couldn't just nick the edible part of the cow and leave us with the lungs and liver. THAT'S LITERALLY WHY WE LEFT - SO WE COULD QUIT EATING SHIT LIKE SUET PIE.

Minnesotans today still eat and manufacture lutefisk https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lutefisk.

Hell. No.

And seriously - Minnesotans (of Scandinavian and German origin, not the new immigrants from Ethiopia and southeast Asia) consider ketchup spicy.

Ketchup.

They also mostly suck at making cheese, which is weird because Wisconsin is awesome at at it they are neighboring states. It's kinda like Belgium and Netherlands with beer?

As someone who lives in Minnesota, I would just like to say that I love spicy things and ketchup doesn't even register on my radar. Can take pictures of the sriracha in my cabinet to confirm, if need be. (Just don't feed me ghost peppers, that's just stupid levels of spicy.)

I'm guessing that at least one, possibly both of the following items are in play

1) You or your parents are not from Minnesota

2) Your last name does not end in -son or -sen

What is the problem with Belgium Beer?

I came back yesterday from a visit to Ghent and Belgium Beer is fantastic.
You only should have the stomach for it...there is a little bit more alcohol in it than in common known beer.

Nothing wrong with the Belgian bier! I've always heard that Belgium makes such good beer that the Dutch don't really try

You got me there. Originally a West Coast boy, from SoCal and Washington. I'm half French and the rest is a smattering of Anglo and German.

Ever heard of the Reblochon ?



It's a cheese produced in the place of France i live in (near the Mont-Blanc), and quite popular since it's been declined in tartiflette : a Savoyard gratin made from potatoes, bacon (lardons), and onions- ty Wikipedia

but it's not my favourite, i'd say that Camembert, Gorgonzolla and Comté are those i like the most i'm a big fan of the Epoisse too (this one is very strong though)
