Middle-American cuisine is reflective of United States history in general. The country truly is a melting pot, where culinary contributions of many worldwide groups are included. Their cuisine includes influences from Latin Americans, Pacific Islanders, Europeans and Asians. They also have dishes that trace back to Native Americans, who first lived in the "New World" before settlers arrived.

The Midwest, as is the case with other regions of the United States, was heavily influenced by the influx of settlers from all over the world. Germans introduced sausages, beer and sauerkraut. Italians brought with them native cheese and pastas - the British introduced roasts with potatoes and meat pies.

The terrain and climate of the US Midwest are quite suitable for growing crops. Corn, wheat and many other vegetables and grains find their way into recipes prepared in the region.

Many types of meats are served in the Midwestern region of the United States. Beef and pork are plentiful, and venison is preserved during deer hunting season. Poultry like chicken is served quite often, as well. There are many varied dishes in the Midwest. Try one soon.
