                I'm in the USA and my grandparents would always get zuppa di clams/mussels when we went out to an Italian restaurant. Nobody younger in the family would order seafood as much though. Pretty much all Italian restaurants that I've been to in the USA will have zuppa di clams/mussels, calamari, frutti di mare, various shrimp dishes. Sometimes scallops. Usually a few different kinds of fish fillet dishes.

                It's lighter food though for the most part. I think when people go out they want something heavy and a little more indulgent like pizza, or something else with a lot of cheese or meat. Might have to do with seafood not being as cheap too most of the time.

              Most of the fish british people prefer has been overfished to death locally and has to be imported. And all the things that aren't plain old white fish are now seen as old fashioned foods e.g. kippers because if it ain't cooked by an immigrant it ain't real food or something. Weirdly most of the fish and seafood that is still landed in the UK is exported to the continent and most of the UK's fish is imported from the scandis.

                Nope. To an American, scampi is any dish sauteed with butter, garlic and parsley, with wine being optional and shrimp being the most common variant (as the so-called "shrimp scampi").

          This doesn't jive. It took us centuries to figure out how to cross the Atlantic finally in 1492, but by 1520 we're already crossing the ENTIRE Pacific? How did they know that would lead to somewhere?

        What? All of those, espeically tomatoes & potatoes where already selectivley bred and where not so different from what they looked like today, except for some fruits. They were cultivated over time to adapt to the other continent but that goes for both "trades".

          >she's never seen what precolombian tomatoes and potatoes looked like
          Potatoes had fingers making them look like gingerroot while tomatoes were much smaller and resembled red belladonna berries. The closest extant fruit/plant that looks like precolombian tomato is Brazilian nightshade so look that up if you want to see what Montezuma was eating before euros came along and fricked his shit in

            that looks like it does not mean that the pre-colombian tomatoes looked like that, it was smaller sure but it still resembled todays tomatoes more than the pre-colombian one.
            These people cultivated these plants for millennia even if selection has improved raipdly in agriculture of course.

              No, just the ones euros brought back, hence the name "pomodoro" IE "golden fruit/apple." The natives had a few different colours but red was most common.

      Agriculture. Our close contact with large amount of domestic animals introduced diseases to humans in the old world. New world agriculture was different. Outside of places like the Aztec empire it was more like agriscaping. Manipulating rivers to make it easier to catch fish, manipulating forests to grow more edible plants and game.

    The exchange brought much greater change to the Americas than to Europe, even with regard to cuisine. How could it be otherwise? Native American societies had been isolated from something like 90% of the human population, having no involvement with the past 10,000 years of civilizational development that occured in the old world. They had barely anything to work with. No cereals except maize, no livestock, no dairy, no citrus, no cruciferous vegetables, not even garlic (at least as we know it today). Rough situation.

    You can point to many recognizable European, African, or Asian dishes that couldd have been made in a pre-columbian world. Native American cuisine is harder. It was fundamentally transformed. What was being served in Montezuma's palace? Not much we could recognize today I think.
