1. Fried Chicken -- The exact origin of this greatest of American dishes is hotly debated -- whether it originated in southern Europe, or in North Africa -- but it was carried to the coast of West Africa by Portuguese mariners (who also brought tempura to Japan at about the same time), and from thence to the New World in slave ships. It is now the cornerstone of American cooking, one of the best tests of a cook, and a dish much-copied around the world. Yafa Deli cooks up a batch periodically all day, dusted only with a small amount of flour to give the skin superior color and crispness -- the same recipe carried to New York from the Carolinas nearly a century ago. 907 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, 718-789-8630
