(The list is not exhaustive, but these were the options that came into mind)

As you all know, food is one of the most important things in life...LOL
Being in the UK currently, I am trying all sorts of different foods and tastes
around the world...
Most of them are highly interesting...LOL

So which one do you prefer? For me, the option is Mediterranean, as I come from
Greece, and nothing tastes as good as home food...

Ready your forks...

Would that be Mediterranean or Other European?

Italian should definitely have been on the list; the Italian cuisine is generally believed to be one of the best in the world (among a few others that were named). Italian cuisine is a lot more than just pizza and spaghetti. do I really need to name famous culinary creations like Tournedos Rossini, Saltimbocca, Carpaggio, Osso Buco or Tira Mi Su, to name but a few?

...not to forget a''foie gras'' or a ''magret de canard aux cepes''

Do it next time - and make Spanish and Greek separate ones as well then. Mediterranean is too big a mixture for a poll like this. I had to pick it now, for Italian. Luckily Spanish comes second for me. Wink

Not sounding chauvinist but I really do prefer the several cuisines from my own country. Including the adaptation made in the food borrowed from everywhere (always with a local flavor here)
 
The wiki section is greatly incomplete but it's a good start for beginners. You may find more here:

Having been in the restaurant business for a quarter century , I can say there are some terrible chefs in every kitchen (hahaha) Obviously one can eat very well in Italy and France as  a rule . In England , great ethnic cuisines but seriously, British cuisine (?) . Hungarian cooking is very tasty, spicy, paprika, sourcream everywhere. Swiss food is tasty as well.  Thai, Korean, Japanese and real , I repeat, REAL, Chinese can be extremely pleasing .

But in the end, the "Francais" just have too much talent, turning a simple bavette into a masterstroke, onglet with chives, generally game is phenomenal (ask Obelix) , a country with so many wines, cheeses, pastries and they use every piece of butchering. Alllez les Bleus!

which reminds me of an old heaven / hell joke: "in heaven the cook is French, the policeman English, the car mechanic German, the clerk Swiss and the lover Italian. in hell the cook is English, the policeman German, the car mechanic French, the clerk Italian and the lover Swiss"
