Lasagna

lasagna

Lasagna (singular, pronounced [laˈzaɲa] in Italian; plural lasagne pronounced [laˈzaɲe]) is both a form of pasta in sheets (sometimes rippled, though seldom so in Northern Italy) and also a dish, sometimes named lasagne al forno (meaning “oven-cooked lasagne”) made with alternate layers of pasta, cheese, and often ragù (a meat sauce) or tomato sauce. In the UK, the dish is always spelled lasagne as it is in Italy.

The word lasagna, which originally applied to a cooking pot, now simply describes the food itself.[1] Americans commonly use the singular “lasagna” to refer to both the dish and the pasta, while others use the Italian plural “lasagne”.

Although the dish is generally believed to have originated in Italy, the word “lasagna” comes from the Greek λάσανα (lasana) or λάσανον (lasanon) meaning “trivet or stand for a pot”, “chamber pot”[3][4][5]. The Romans borrowed the word as “lasanum”, in Latin, meaning “cooking pot”. The Italians used the word to refer to the dish in which lasagna is made. It wasn’t long before the name of the food took on the name of the serving dish.

Another theory suggests that lasagna might come from Greek λάγανον (laganon), a flat sheet of pasta dough cut into strips.[6][7][8][9]

The recipe was featured in the first cookbook ever written in England, leading to an urban legend that the dish originated in the British Isles.[10] The claim is dubious, in light of the much earlier Roman use of “lasanum”.


Chicken Fried Steak

cfsteak

Chicken fried steak (also known as country fried steak) is a piece of steak (tenderized cube steak) coated with seasoned flour and pan fried. It is associated with Southern U.S. cuisine and hospitality. Its name is likely due to chicken fried steak’s similarity in preparation to fried chicken, though the dish is also similar to the classic Viennese dish Wiener Schnitzel, a tenderized veal cutlet, coated with flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs and fried.

The precise origins of the dish are unclear, but many sources attribute its development to German and Austrian immigrants to Texas in the nineteenth century who brought recipes for Wiener Schnitzel from Europe to the USA.[1] Lamesa, the seat of Dawson County on the Texas South Plains, claims to be the birthplace of chicken fried steak, as does Bandera, Texas.[2]

Chicken fried steak is among numerous popular dishes which make up the official state meal of Oklahoma.
