    Actually when fresh, mushrooms (Agaricus bisporus) are delectable. The canned version, however, looks a lot like your description: tasteless old rubber.

    Unless prepared with cream sauce
    We call that "Normandy style" in France.

    Agarici bispori were first cultivated in France (early 18th century), and despite their common name "Portobello", "Swiss mushrooms", or "Italian mushrooms", they have nothing in common with either Switzerland or Italy. Or rather, they are only a fairly recent addition to Italian cuisine.

    But there are countless other recipes... For fresh mushrooms, I mean.
    For instance, stuffed mushrooms baked in the oven, with garlic, shallots, breadcrumbs and olive oil (Italian version).

    Putting canned mushrooms on pizzas is just an American invention: it's not only a culinary heresy, it's also the clear proof you are consuming junk food.

    ...I'm a European, cup cake.

    And I only eat organic fresh veg - at least when I cook my own meals

    Sorry, mushrooms somehow are always rubbery to me, it seems, except for when smothered in cream - then they are delectable

    Well, anyone can feel prideful if we have to compare our own national cuisine with Belgian one (unless of course they're English).
    You know the reason why France never wanted to annex Wallonia?

    Simple: try to find a single good restaurant while you're in Liège or Namur. Or just like @Jaguar, think to Brussel sprouts.

    On the other hand, it explains why French were so eager to die for Alsace: the local gastronomy is astounding, and if a German wants to understand why Elsaß is French, just let him breathe the eery perfume of a Munster cheese.

    Warning: for anybody who is not French, this cheese could be classified as a dangerous chemical weapon.

    Uh huh. And yet you still felt the need to steal our credit to decent fries, calling them french fries, while fries in France suck

    I miss Belgian cuisine - the baked goods, the mussels and BELGIAN fries and oh god, the chocolate

    We like good food - like you guys - but we prefer the more rustic, no nonsense approach instead of that high fancy prissy shit

    Differences in taste can't be argued though, I guess

    Historically, it's Antoine Augustin Parmentier who recommended potatoes for human consumption in continental Europe. So indeed, it's "French" fries, even if mashed potatoes have probably been sooner invented (and tasted) by poor Irishmen.

    Curiously, I would make the same observation about Belgian fries: they're oily, soft and tasteless. But maybe it's an acquired taste, who knows?

    Or rather, if we want to reconcile and find a common ennemy, let's say that both French and Belgian fries looks way more civilized than what the MacDonald restaurants pretend to be "potato fries".

    I miss Belgian cuisine - the baked goods, the mussels
    You mean... The mussels van Brussels?




    and oh god, the chocolate
    OK, you win a point.

    Chocolate... well...

    I once had the chance to discover Pierre Marcolini's shop. And... Wow!

    I got fries at a sandwich shop in Paris once. The guy totally douched them with ketchup and mayonnaise. It was delicious.
