I knew this movie would come in handy one day.
I kept it in my movie toolbox for so long, too.
It helped me learn of the dish AND how to spell it properly
That is one of the most beautiful and at the same time simple dish I've ever seen
The one in the movie is based on a real recipe that takes 4 hours to prepare
Yeah I mean simple in terms of ingredients... also cartoon movies tend to exaggerate a bit
This one didn’t.
They had the amazingly lucky and talented chef Thomas Keller as a resource when making the film. There’s many, many details that are attributed to real kitchen brigades, thanks to TK hosting them at The French Laundry while the film was in production.
For example, there really are women who will threaten your personal safety.
Seriously, pay attention to the kitchen scenes—they depict everything that’s culturally accurate, it’s all based upon reality. The exaggeration is for the kids mostly.
Something something Confit Biyaldi
Are you going to finish that KWASONT
Le Big Mac
Royal with Cheese
Royale with cheese!
Because of the metric system
STOP!!! I COULD’VE DROPPED MY CROISSANT!!!
omelette du fromage
That’s all you can say!
*happy french noises*
Croissants were invented in Austria.
How does nobody think of the Swedish meatballs?
Reading your comment my mind went straight to Ikea
Wait, its all IKEA?
Always has been - how else do you think god built it all in 7 days. Well, 6.
[SCP-3008](https://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-3008) greets you…
The store is closing soon,
**please find the nearest exit,**
EXCUSE ME, THE STORE IS CLOSED
Everything is IKEA.
Pffft easy.... french fries.
Sad belgium noises
Since they are concidered 'french'
That stands for how the patato is cut, that's also why it's not written with a capital.
Plus we have the best fries in the world so why care about it.
*tijd voor ne frit me stoofvlees*
En de mayonaise + het zeezout voor op de frieten nie vergeten!
Zout op de fritten is standaard!
Hmmm ne met stoofvleessaus doorweekte frit in de mayonaise soppen.
AH SHIT YOU GOT ME
Aren't chips french fries? You still in the race
Both are food, one is a pudding with raisins
BUT WHAT IS THE OTHER ONE
The other one is not spotted
Unless there’s some sort of disease process going on…
same question ?
Did you know that the first French fries weren’t made in France.
They were made in Grease.
Did you know that French fries aren’t actually French? They’re actually cooked in Greece
WRONG. it’s BELGIAN fries.
Wrong! It’s FREEDOM FRIES
wrong! It’s POTATO STICK
wrong! It’s SÜLTKRUMPLI
Ugyanitt bojler eladó
WRONG! Its Pommes
Still in Europe they're actually Belgian if I remember correctly
Fries are Belgian
Any idea which country they originated from?
Mandatorily mispronouncing both syllables.
Reminds me of the AITA post where the guy spells it “nokki” and it took some time for commenters to figure out he wasn’t talking about some specialty Japanese dish.
The pronunciation is ñokki
God help us
have you ever even had it???
only thing i know about scotland is shrek, and that its the quebec of the UK
Oh, God, it's Quebec. Why are you here dude? Shouldn't you be speaking French? Also you guys have the best restaurants in Canada. Sorry if that sounded rude.
oui! Oh, God, it's u/dill_dude why are you here dude? Shouldn't you be speaking american? Also I do have the best restaurants in quebec.
Potato and cheese pierogis are dangerous
Pierogi = plural form, we don't have to add "s" at the end.
1 Pieróg, 2 Pierogi, when you refeer to it as a dish, indeed u say "Pierogi". When you say Pieróg it usually only one, very big one.
I no longer let it bother me. People won’t ever learn
Yet we say “bitelsi” or “jankesi” even if The Beatles or Yankees are already plural. Let them use pierogis
Are you Jordan Schlansky?
Hamburger, Frankfurter, Doughnuts (Berliners) Apple Pie… I think a shorter list would be what dishes are really from the US?
I can’t help but smile when movies use apple pie, often combined with references to ‘red, white and blue’, as shorthand for America, when apple pie comes from the UK - a country with a red, white and blue flag…
Came here to say this
Yummy. My weakness.
YEAH EVERY GERMAN SPEAKS IN CAPITAL LETTERS AND ALWAYS SCREAMS AND TALKS LIKE HITLER!
(I think Schnitzel is Austrian though)
Hitler was Austrian so you’re basically right!
Hitler was also Austrian (before 1932)
I know that, live in Germany!
I live in Switzerland. Güezi!
Did you mean ŘÍZEK!!!!!
Did you mean RÁNTOTTHÚS?
How about "plněný knedlíky"
How about..... Svíčková?
Bullshit! He ment REZEŇ!
That would be acceptable too, brother/sister/sibling.
I’ve seen British people put beans on scrambled eggs
Yep.. And it's really good. Scrambled eggs, beens, hashbrownes.... Those are all really good.
British people have breakfast figured out
My man knows👊
Is that weird? Mexicans do this too that's what most our breakfast was growing up lol
Jägerschnitzel mit Knödel.

You are not American! Americans make typos!
Doch, je suis Amerikaner.
Ah yes, European language.
Eindeutig Amiländer, bitte weiter gehen...
Tea and crumpets
I was an hour late and posted the same thing. Shame on me. Shame on my fathers. Shame on my ancestors.
For 10k I will use my time machine, go back in time and kill all your ancestors. Obviously I need the money up front, after I’ve succeeded, you will no longer exist. But neither will your shameful Reddit comment.
Best I can do is a warm six pack and a half eaten PBJ.
Beef Burgundy (France), gyros (Greece), borscht (Ukraine), pierogi (Poland), gazpacho (Spain), croquetes (Portugal), bratwurst (Germany), shepherds pie (UK), polenta (Italy).
Nice even listed nations of origin.
*confused in Denmark*
As a french, it took me awhile to realize beef burgundy is actually bœuf bourguignon.
What the fuck is that word
The dish comes from the Bourgogne region, that's why it's called bœuf bourguignon.
That's how I pronounced it in my head
Eae mano portuga
> croquettes (Portugal)
Croquettes (France) - also where they look to have originated.
Grutzwurst! (probably spelling wrong)
Which one? The Hungarian one? The Czech/Slovakian one? Or the segedin goulash?
i was waiting for this one
Bacalhau com Natas
Bacalhau à Brás
Pastéis de bacalhau
Beans on Toast.
I laughed, decided to make one, turns out it’s really good…. I don’t know what else to say.
It is pretty good. The first time I bit into one I immediately burst into laughter. It was overwhelming how exactly it met my expectations.
Beans on toast
A piece of toast in a sandwich?
Is gyro technically European? I failed geography
Greece is in Europe
Yes indeed. Greece is in Europe.
Yeah I think Greece is still in Europe from what I know
There's a pretty nice little gyro shop not too far from where I live.
Käsespätzle, Döner, Maultaschen, Semmelknödel, Schnitzel...
My man you must be hungry af to eat a whole fucking volcano
Stromboli yummy, have you not had it?
Nope what is that, I only know the volcano stromboli
It's an American dish created and made popular by Italian immigrants. It's kind of like a hot pocket that doesn't suck. Honestly, it's so similar to what Americans consider to be Italian food that I had to look up where they were created to make sure they weren't actually Italian.
It's just a deep fried calzone
Fårikål, pinnekjøtt and ribbe
Fiskeboller i hvit saus
Ravioli, eat my ass
Is your ass European?
*a European. It may start with a vowel, but it starts with a “y” sound. In this case, y is not a vowel.
Thanks I'll keep this in mind
Krvavica made from pure blood and some meat made in servis if you want more details tell me

Flæskesteg, "smørrebrød" idk why our dark bread seems weird to some ppl.

Lutefisk is your guys’ fault
Pesto, bangers and mash, colcannon, paella… Need I go on?
Bratwurst (originally German), the four mother sauces (French) Bechamel, Espangole, Tomato and whatever the 4th was, French Fries (Belgium)
I'm not American but I wanted to feel included
Easy, borsch, chicken Kiev(actually from france btw), and plov
Blood sausage is really good
Gołabki, but my family is heavy polish so a lot of dishes are cultural

Kabab is not European my guy.
Borscht, does Russian count?
I would love to see this question flipped,
Europeans, name a good that comes from the U.S
Can say from america because that includes central and South and they actually have dishes.
All u.s food is just European food
