Thanx to Wikipedia for the list, which I have shortened for this thread.

Some interesting choices for some of the national dishes on this list.

And to answer Hagar's question in the other thread, I was referring to the sauerkraut as I like the other German national dishes, though I am allergic to curry :bigcry:

What about dessert - Bara Brith - a wonderful fruit loaf that is served sliced with lashings of butter.

Welsh cakes - which a a flat scone (biscuit flat) with fruit. Yummy.

What about South Africa ? Any ideas (besides the braai)?

Bobootie, Koeksisters, Springbok Boerewors served with pap and sauce.

I am tempted to say Braai but that's not really a "dish"...

So Boerewors, Pap, Biltong and Droewors as well as Vetkoek, Koeksusters and Melktert. would be my choice.

Anyone brave enough to go and add our choices to the Wikipedia list ?
