    I agree, the thread was about food ... got off track ... mea culpa!! ... but interesting none the less!

    As this has ended up being so Off Topic, I have gone to go over to the "Off Topic & Lighter Fare" section and opened a new thread for the NON-FOOD discussion of of America's traditional priveleged "blueblood" WASP culture ... both historically and present-day.

    PLEASE feel free to continue the non-food aspect of the discussion there

      I'd also like some of the Lipton sour cream onion dip.

And as we enjoyed our dish, we both said how comforting it was, and how we sometimes miss the way we used to eat.

          Cheers, John


          ... definitely comfort food.
          I suppose that if WASPy food is kinda English food ... one of my favorite comfort foods is Yorkshire pudding (the roast with it aint' bad either :-)

                  The Vermont Pub and Brewery in Burlington, Vt. used to make a version with cheddar and onions in the batter. Sacrilege to me, but hubby loved it!

                    As a Catholic, I suppose I don't actually get to have a formal WASP perspective. However, I'm Irish, no Italian relations and I grew up in New England/ New York. I submit for your approval: The Bagel Melt- Lenders onion bagel, toasted with velveeta.
                    I realize that Lenders' aren't real bagels and that velveeta is not cheese...but damn, it makes a tasty latchkey snack.

                      No one mentioned Miracle Whip - I thought that was a WASP staple.

                          I am getting rather tired of this WASP stuff. It is so easy to pick on the majority. Not only am I White, Anglo-Saxon and Protestant, I am a male!! There is no form of life on earth that is less protected.

                          How about we talk about Swarthy, Poverty-level, Italian, Catholics?

                          Can anyone else come up with more denegrating acronyms? Let's insult a few more people.

                            You're all so wrong. I'm third generation WASP and we eat fresh veggies, grilled fish and actually drink wine not gin.

                              (Good show, I say! That'll keep 'em off the track. Wouldn't want them to catch on that we all only eat endangered species and drink 100+ year old cognac, now would we. )

                                Of course, Marshmallow Fruit Salad.
                                And I concur with the Chicken Ala King.
                                I make a killer one, being the WASP that I am.

                                  Giving "WASP" it's standard-use meaning, not just white anglo-saxon and Protestant, but blue-blooded with a New England background as well, I'm half WASP and half Southern. Funny thing is, it's the Southern side of the family that has anything like a sense of food tradition. My WASP grandparents served mostly Mexican and New Mexican food, and washed it down with white wine.

                                    Where do they live that the serve New Mexican food? That's pretty specific stuff and not that common outside NM,CO,TX maybe AZ.

                                      You want traditional Yankee fare!?? You can't go wrong with a good ol' fashion New England Clam Chowder, (Chowda as we prefer to say it) Boiled Dinner, and the piece du resistance, a REAL genuine New England Clambake!!!!! Makes me wanna sing a few lines of "Yankee Doodle" myself!!!! This, along with the topic may sound inflammatory, but it's meant for nothing else but a strong sense of pride for our unique heritage. The best medicine is where people can poke fun at themselves without creating an uproar.

                                        Some serious, thoughtful answers here and then a lot of heavy prejudice against a definite minority group. How come it's okay to mock WASPS and your perceptions of what foods they might enjoy?????

                                            Tuna noodle casserole with crumbled potoato chips on top for extra crunch. My mom always referred to it as "Lutheran Hot Dish."

                                                I'm thinking Boston, Durgin-Park, baked beans, fish cakes, apple pie, Indian pudding, that sort of thing.

                                                  I think my favorite WASP dish would have to be lobster ...uh, lobstah.

                                                  I like the wasp versions of foods from the "old country" which would be turkey (an "alderman in chains" as I noted earlier), beef dishes including yankee pot roast, as Rando noted - lamb (yum!) ... but seafood, particularly lobster, would be my favorite.

                                                  As far as modern-wasp foods ... how bout "Jell-O 123"

                                                    I would include any of the meat salads: chicken, tuna, man, shrimp and egg.

                                                    A turkey club is also a very WASP sandwich.

                                                      Maybe there's a chapter that covers "roadfood".

                                                          The WASP's have always been known for the cocktails first. The Bloody Mary and the Gin and Tonic being the standard bearers.

                                                            Regarding the Susanna Salk book ... looks like an interesting photo book on WASP style and food. She's an editor from "Elle" and also "House and Garden".
