  American Cuisine - CookbookWiki
Another major turning point for American cuisine was the days of the "melting pot" in the early 20th century.
The main factors that determine the variations of American cuisine are climate, ingredient availability, immigrants and neighboring countries.
Americans never miss an opportunity to celebrate their food, by either eating hot dog's at a ball game or organizing a festival to honor a certain food.

 Cuisine of the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On the other hand, American cooks have exported a great variety of dishes around the world, and is in many ways American cuisine is just as recognisable and as popular as French, Chinese, or Indian.
The cuisine of the Native Americans was of course the first American cooking style, and it lent a great deal not only to subsequent American cooking but also to culinary styles around the world.
Some describe American cuisine as the result of each immigrant community simply making use of whatever they could grow in their new home, or incorporating America's native plants and game animals in traditional recipes.

 American Chinese cuisine - Chinese Food - Chinese Restaurant and Chinese Food
American Chinese cuisine (什碎館 or 雜碎館) is a style of cooking served by many Chinese restaurants in the United States.
Restaurants serving American Chinese cuisine are mainly run by the descendants of early Chinese immigrants (dating back to the 19th century) and cater to the taste of non-Chinese Americans.
Other cuisines may exert their influence: a common substitution is grilled flour tortillas in place of rice pancakes in mu shu dishes, and brown rice is readily available as an alternative to white rice.

 BBC - h2g2 - American Cuisine - A378155
While it's possibly true that American cuisine lacks the sophistication of the French, the balance of the Chinese, the fragrance of the Thai, and the elegance of the Japanese, there is nonetheless a warm, comforting quality to American food that is rarely found in other cultures.
American cuisine is largely cuisine of the middle classes - food that's inexpensive, easy to prepare, that cooks up quickly, and is tasty and filling.
It's ingredients are modest, reflecting the love affair with thrift, and it is smooth in texture and creamy in flavour, reflecting a love of ease and relaxation, a small taste of the good life after a hard day's work at the plant.

 American Cuisine - by food author Howard Hillman

 Regional Cuisine Puts American Cooking On the Map (Restaurants USA, October 1997) | Restaurants USA | National ...
There are a number of different reasons for the slight, but the cumulative result is that American cuisine and fine cuisine are still seen by many diners as mutually exclusive.
While professionals shoulder a good part of the responsibility for American cuisine’s low esteem and respect, the expectations and limitations of the dining public compounded the problem.
To meet those demands, chefs are specializing in the low-country cuisine of coastal South Carolina, rediscovering the terrapin soup and stuffed ham of Maryland’s Eastern shore, and investigating the cuisines of Florida’s Cracker Islands.

 Understanding & Appreciating Middle-American Cuisine-Culture   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
What I have dubbed "Middle-American Cuisine" is the kind of food I grew up on; it is the kind of food I love, the kind of food my family prefers.
It has been a valuable exercise --trying to organize an annual event the last three years aimed at honoring this kind of food-- because it has forced me to identify the key characteristics of such food and to try to understand the unspoken, unwritten rules which define it.
Rather than allowing others to mistakenly equate lack of sophisticated culturedness as lacking a culture --as if we were culture-less-- it is time to stand up and be recognized for the cultural and culinary traditions which are all our own.

 Slavery in America
Okra or gumbo, as it is called in Africa, was especially favoured in French and Spanish Louisiana during the colonial era, when European and Native American cuisine came together with African cooking to produce the unique Creole cuisine of New Orleans.
African Americans continued to make it in Savannah, Georgia; in South Carolina, the palmetto tree is the source of this potent brew.
In some cases, African Americans extracted material from the center the palmetto tree, called palm cabbage or palmetto cabbage, and cooked or fermented it for wine.

 The Food Timeline: history notes--Asian-American cuisine
But it wasn't until after World War II that Americans began consciously to augment their Oriental kitchen repertoires by attending classes in Chinese cooking and avidly sampling new tastes that became available in restaurants specializing in Mandarin, Hunan, Fukien, and Szechwan dishes in addition to those from Canton.
Many dishes were cloyingly sweetened with caramel and sugar, inundated with pineapple chunks and maraschino cherries, and fried in thick batters, while the ubiquitious flaming appetized platter called pu pu...was first served as a gimmick by Victor Bergeron at his Trade Vic's Polynesian-American restaurants in Oakland and San Francisco.
The basic formula appears to be: take the fattest, rankest pork you can get; cook it in a lot of oil with the sweetest mixture of canned fruits and sugar you can make; throw on a lot of MSG and cheap soy sauce; thicken the sauce to gluelike consistency; and serve it forth.
