In the United States, pecan pie is a dessert dish that contains pecans, sugar, eggs, butter, and usually, corn syrup. It is traditionally a dish associated with the country’s southern region and dates back to the 19th century.



In Cornish cuisine, Stargazy pie is a pie that consists of eggs, potatoes, and pilchards (sardines). It is served annually in the town of Mousehole, Cornwall, to celebrate the legendary figure of Tom Bawcock, a fisherman. The pilchards in the pie always poke out, head first, above the crust.



China leads the world in pear production, with a total of 16,410,000 metric tons produced in 2017. China is followed by Argentina (930,340 metric tons), Italy (772,577 metric tons), The United States (677,891 metric tons), Turkey(503,004 metric tons), and South Africa (414,879 metric tons).



The first recorded mention of pepperoni was in 1894, in the United States, specifically in the U.S. Government’s Yearbook of Agriculture. Versions of Italian cured meats and sausages have existed for long before this, but pepperoni only gained popularity in North America in the 20th century.



Poi is a traditional Hawaiian dish that is made from taro root. The underground tuber of the taro plant, known as corm, is cooked and then mashed on a wooden board with a basalt-material pestle. Water is added in varying degrees to make the poi soupy, syrupy, or of a pudding-like consistency.


Black pepper and chili peppers come from unrelated plants, but the one thing they do have in common is that they are both fruits. Black peppercorns are the drupe (stone-bearing fruit) of a flowering vine plant, while chili peppers are the fruit of Capsicum plants from the nightshade family.


Pad Thai

Though Pad Thai is known internationally as a dish that originated in Thailand, its exact origins are unknown. Some sources claim that former Thai Prime Minister Plaek Phibunsongkhram created the dish in the 1930s, but others claim it was created as a result of a rice shortage during WWII.
