Italy: -CAPRESE SALAD WITH PESTO SAUCE: A great antipasto bite to start your meal with. Juicy tomatoes and mozzarella cheese salad topped with freshly made pesto sauce.Capri salad is a simple Italian salad, made of sliced fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and sweet basil, seasoned with salt and olive oil; it is usually arranged on a plate in restaurant practice. Like pizza Margherita, it features the colors of the Italian flag: green, white, and red. In Italy, it is usually served as an antipasto (starter), not a contorno (side dish).
It may contents a variant of pesto instead of olive oil
-PASTA CARBONARA: Carbonara is an Italian pasta dish from Rome made with egg, hard cheese, guanciale (or pancetta), and pepper. The recipe is not fixed by a specific type of hard cheese or pasta. The cheese is usually Pecorino Romano.Spaghetti is the usual pasta, however, fettuccine, rigatoni, linguine, or bucatini are also used. Either guanciale or pancetta can be used. Another common substitute outside Italy is lardons of smoked bacon.
The dish was created in the middle of the 20th century
-TIRAMISU: Tiramisu (from the Italian language, spelled tiramisù [ˌtiramiˈsu], from the Venetian tiramesù , meaning "pick me up", "cheer me up" or "lift me up" is a coffee-flavoured Italian dessert. It is made of ladyfingers (savoiardi) dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese, flavoured with cocoa. The recipe has been adapted into many varieties of cakes and other desserts. Its origins are often disputed among Italian regions of Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Piedmont, and others
Most accounts of the origin of tiramisu date its invention to the 1960s in the region of Veneto.
-MUSHROOM RISOTTO: A mushroom risotto can be taken in many different ways, depending on what kind of mushrooms you have and whether they are introduced at the very beginning of cooking or just added at the end, as Iâ€™m going to do here. The inspiration for this recipe came when I was in Japan and saw mushrooms being cooked completely dry on a barbecue or griddle pan. This way of cooking brings out a really fresh and nutty flavour in them; perfect for being dressed lightly with olive oil, salt and lemon juice or stirred into a risotto at the last minute before serving.
-GELATO: Gelato is ice cream made in the Italian style. Gelato is simply the Italian word for ice cream, but in English, it has come to mean specifically Italian or Italian-style ice cream. Gelato is made with a base of milk and sugar. It is generally lower in fat than other styles of ice cream.Gelato typically contains less air and more flavoring than other kinds of frozen desserts, giving it a density and richness that distinguishes it from other ice creams.
BRAZIL: -PAO DE QUEIJO: The fat - lard, vegetable oil, butter or margarine - acts as a molecular lubrificant, contributing to the elastic texture of the dough. The egg gives colour and flavour to the recipe. The type of cheese varies according to preference or availability. The most used are mozzarella, parmesan, and the more traditional ripened cheese and standard cheese, both also from Minas Gerais. The cheese gives the typical flavor of the cheese bread, hence its name. There is also the boiled cheese bread with a preparation technique that requires boiling water while preparing, sometimes mixed with vegetable oil in flour. The boiled cheese bread has the closest taste of natural, as in the boiling process the dough is pre-cooked.
-FEIJOADA: Feijoada is a stew of beans with beef and pork of Portuguese origin. However, the recipe differs slightly from one country to another. Brazilian feijoada made with black beans The name comes from feijão, Portuguese for "beans". The basic ingredients of feijoada are beans with fresh pork or beef. In Brazil, it is usually made with black beans (Feijoada à Brasileira). The stew is best prepared over low heat in a thick clay pot. It is usually served with rice and assorted sausages, such as chouriço, morcela (blood sausage), farinheira, and others, which may or may not be cooked in the stew.
It is commonly prepared in Portugal, Macau, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Goa, India and Brazil, where it is also considered a national dish.
-BRIGADEIRO: The brigadeiro is a traditional Brazilian dessert created in 1940. It is made of condensed milk, cocoa powder, butter, and chocolate sprinkles covering the outside layer. The information regarding when and where the brigadeiro was invented is uncertain. The brigadeiro makes up a big part of the Brazilian culture and is considered a national icon. Generally made in Brazilian homes, it can be eaten with spoon straight from the pot, which is why it can sometimes be called "brigadeiro de colher" (spoon brigadeiro). It is generally shaped into small balls covered in chocolate sprinkles and placed in a small cupcake mold. This dessert is normally served to children at birthday parties and is eaten after the birthday cake.
-COXINHA: The coxinha is a typical appetizer of Brazilian cuisine and also Portuguese cuisine made with shredded chicken breast (frango) wrapped in a dough, then breaded and fried. They look similar to croquettes, sometimes they are shaped like chicken thighs. They are often served with spicy sauce. The name coxinha literally means "thigh" and refers to the form and content of the food. It is very common to see this type of appetizer in the Brazilian and Portuguese lanchonetes.
-MOQUECA: Moqueca is a Brazilian recipe based on salt water fish stew, tomatoes, onions, garlic and coriander.

Many non-Spaniards view paella as Spain's national dish, but most Spaniards consider it to be a regional Valencian dish (despite the fact that actually it is a commonly eaten dish across all Spain, so it can be considered as a Spanish national dish). Valencians, in turn, regard paella as one of their identifying symbols.

The modern ratatouille – tomatoes as a foundation for sautéed garlic, onions, zucchini, eggplant, bell peppers, marjoram, fennel and basil, or bay leaf and thyme, or a mix of green herbs like herbes de Provence – does not appear in print until c. 1930.
