What we eat in Chile?
Humitas, that are similar to tamales, are our oldest foods of Amerindian origin,
 
 
We also have some cooked corn food called maize pastry (pastel de choclo) that is served in potery pots.
 
We also love sea food, and a amazingly variety of different foods. From Spain we got Empanadas
 
And sweet things, that are really of Arab origin
 
 
Also arab are our "rolled children" (ninitos envueltos), which are made of wine leaves, and filled with rice and meat
 
 
We have many different foods of Amerindian, Arab, Iberian and European roots. We love the mediterranean food, but also have some foods of the poors people. Cow interiors, particular stomach and intestines are appreciated by the countryside people (we most are descendent of cowboys. For instance, a kind of crude spagetties, called "pantrucas" were very popular in old times
 
New generations are too much into American foods, but we keep our traditions well. For  
instance, our Hot Dogs are unique:
 
 
 
And our meat sandwich as well.

If you can't make it right with grape leafs you may try with cabbage leaves. They work as well.
With respect to grape leafs, you have to collect them fresh, when they are very soft and roll easy. Besides, you should cook them in some water with salt, before to attempt to do the rolls.

I should try that. A food friend and her husband made me this for one of my birthdays but my late mother was the best at making stuff cabbage. I have done stuffed tomatoes and bell peppers also. Now that I live in the desert I am not sure where I can get fresh grape leafs but Wilcox is not far and they have vineyards so I should ask. While I am at it I should pick up some wine in Wilcox and have it with our dinner.

I got the pics of some dishes I made so all I have to do is load them on the CD and then figure out how I can add them here.

I have an idea though!!! I will make spaghetti and meatballs tonight with ground Turkiye/Hindi but I want to wrap the meat around a Kalamata olive and stuff it with feta cheese, minus the pit. I will add the mint, garlic, diced onions to the ground meat of course. I will cook it tonight but let it sit till tomorrow so the flavor sets in and for my date tomorrow night. wine- spaghetti, Greek salad with candles light.

We do both - grape and cabbage leaves - the cabbage should be sour however (kind of like saurkraut, but not cut up).

I like your name for it though, where the foods from it has a plain name, either Dolma (To be Stuffed) or Sarma (To be wrapped).

Now wait; all the Greek people I know insist that it is Greek in origin. LOL Seriously though, I never could understand why people couldn't just all agree on, "It originated in the Eastern Mediterranean," with regard to any number of things. It's the same with the gyro and hummus -- I've heard aetiologies ranging from the Balkans to the Levant.

I would love to know more about a sweet food called Baklava. My cousin brought it for me once on a trip to Greece, and it tasted delicious. If anyone can provide a recipe, that would be greatly appreciated. 

Also, where does Baklava come from? Greece? Turkey? Is it Arab?

It is Mediterranean food. So it comes from everywhere in the Mediterranean.

That's what I'd gathered too, es_bih, for all that I've heard Greeks and Arabs both vehemently claim it. Wink
 
Blech. Never could stomach the stuff. A bit too rich and sweet for my taste. Sometimes I wish I had a more discerning tongue, but what can you do?

All the people of the Mediterranean share many foods, like the love for sea food. However, in the case specific of these rolls, I believe they come from the Eastern Mediterranean, between Greece and Palestine... Turkey perhaps Wink

If you ask a Greek its Greek, ask a Turk its Turkish, ask an Arab its Arabic LOL

There have actually been food historians who study this stuff, there are two main theories,  either Byzantine or Turkic, there was a similar dish in Byzantine times however, according to food historian Charles Perry it didn't contain any dough. According to him the origins are in Turkic Central Asia, the Turks developed a very thin pastry called "Yufka" which is used to make the dish. Kashgari Mahmud also mentions the dish and there are variants in Turkic countries.

However, the final form of Baklava as we know it today took its form in the royal Ottoman kitchens.

This kind of foods were bought by the Turks all the way from Central Asia. It may seem strange that these foods could originate there as many people think they just eat meat and not very advanced gastronomy culture. However, this view is far from the truth, there are so many fruits and vegetables which grow in the region, in Eastern Turkistan/Xinjiang the grapes and vineyards are so famous that they're the stuff of legend and folklore. You may be more suprised to know this same dish is made there aswell, all the way in China!

Most seafoods in Turkey were adopted from the Greeks, Greeks are the King of the sea foods Tongue

Did the Amerindians have a seafood culture Pinguin?
