Why is traditional food in the americas suck? Outside of Mexico and Peru, everything else is mediocre
>>
because you touch yourself
>>
Because there was little to no civilization in most of the Americas until europe came over. Lots of tribes, no real civilization.
>>
Because 90% of them died to disease before we ever met any of them.

>traditional food in the americas...
Because its all peasant food. 'Authentic' mexican cuisine is one of those artsy words like 'hand crafted' or 'small batch'.

Here in SoCal I see 'authentic' places pop up all the time and either change or go out of business. Americans take what it good about latin foods and then throw away all the pleb tier parts. That's why we have "Tex-Mex" and "So-Mex". It's to let you know it's 'inspired' by latin food, but not shitty like latin food.

The last 'authentic' place I went had frikin' green beans, corn, and UNMASHED beans (like in a bean salad) in a burrito. They didn't last 2 months.

That 'Mexican' food is what the Spaniard and French overlords would eat. Going through the pictures:
>Meat (expensive)
>Cheese (expensive)
>Sugar (expensive)
>Chocolate Mole Sauce (expensive)
These things would ONLY be eaten (in large amounts) at a party or festival. The pleb tier 'authentic' mestizos would eat rice, beans, and whatever was cheapest in that season (peppers, vegetables, fish).

I might agree on Peru, but Mexican food IRL is the best
>>8491971
Because it's very difficult for a cuisine to both have a national identity and have a high level of development without a persistent aristocratic class. The New World was built on the ashes of civilizations whose aristocracies we destroyed, and our best effort at aristocracies are baboons like the Trumps. So our finest offerings are really just regurgitated imports (for instance, the California wines that are made in the French style).

Ok.

And how is that "Americans taking what its good about latin foods and then throw away all the pleb tier parts"? How is Tex-Mex and So-Mex garbage better than any of those dishes?

We can be here forever if you want, but I suggest that you better stick to /r9k/ and /pol/, friend.

Corn was the >staple food, but there are all kinds of foods that came out of the Americas

Before the discovery of the New World, food basically didn't exist as we know it, and yes those were all discovered by indigenous populations. Look it up on wikipedia if you don't believe me.

Turkeys were also domesticated in Mesoamerica. And potatoes come from Peru.
