Traditional American Cuisine

Traditional American Cuisine

USE THIS KEYWORD: BRAMERICANCUISINE2020
Does the thought of crispy grilled bacon, fresh-sliced lettuce and juicy meat in a toasted bun leave you speechless? American cuisine reflects the history of the US, blending the culinary contributions of people from around the globe. American food definitely isn‘t just hot dogs and hamburgers. In fact, many regional cuisines have a deeply-rooted ethnic heritage. Have you ever tried Cajun food, Louisiana Creole or Pennsylvania Dutch? We‘re looking for shots of American food this month. Clients have asked for commercial shots of “American BBQ” or “American regional foods”.
