It says I'm Italian.
Perhaps I should visit my spiritual home one day, though my allergy to wheat and aversion to meat mean I might starve to death there...

I came up Belgian!

But you are Belgian!

(Come on, deny you have waffles. And chips with frittersaus.)

What's frittersaus? (I do have waffles!)

Fritesaus is the mayonnaise-type stuff they put on chips; hence the name.

I'm not sure quite how close it is to actual mayonnaise, though.

Aioli's also good with frites, as is the fearsome white Belgian horseradish mayonnaise.

Oops, sorry, a typo on my part.

It should be fritessaus, and it's the sauce that goes on frites. It's possibly more Dutch than Belgian, but seeing that the Low Countries were once one nation (there later being a split between French speaking Catholics to the south and Dutch speaking Protestants to the north - though I'm sure nwhyte can put it far more precisely and elegantly - and there is still a split between the Flems and Walloons running through Belgium to this day, oh yes, where was I, this sentence appears to be overly full of follow-on clauses), I'm not going to worry too much.

If you can't find fritessaus, then mayonnaise is the usual substitute. Or possibly vice versa.

Oh. Well, I don't eat it, regardless of what it is! I don't like mayonnaise or its derivatives very much (I had a Traumatizing Mayonnaise Experience as a child) and all I put on chips is salt. :)

I'm also Belgian. I suspect a liking for a) frites and b) cartoons is responsible

I'm also apparently more Danish and Irish than I am English.

(My actual nationality is a joint fourth place with Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Poland.)

I didn't see West Country in the list.

But I liked frites. And cartoons. And beer!

(But mountains, holey cheese and neutrality may have influenced the result.)

Me? Swiss.

(That I'd already stated elsewhere that I intend to drink Swiss wine tonight is a pure coincidence. Alright? I'm just in a Swiss mood today.)

Swiss wine

Swiss wine? What's that then - propylene glycol flavoured with edelweiss? :) I don't think I've ever seen wine from Switzerland on sale outside that country.

You're thinking Austria!

(Poor, poor Austria. They do make some nice wines, but the actions of a few crooks can near kill an industry.)

No, I've not seen Swiss wine outside Switzerland either. But we were in Valais two weeks ago, and there was a free wine tasting, and, well, these things happen, and we ended up lugging several bottles back.

Thank goodness we weren't flying.

We took some bottles over to Ireland a week ago, drinking them before PCon, but we've still got the rest. The Swiss red wines do tend to be quite delicate, the sort you can feed to people who normally suffer an adverse reaction from reds.

thats because it really only tastes good buried in a pot full of melted cheese...

Nah, they're like the Germans - they don't let the good stuff out of the country, only the crap. And in the case of the Swiss, they don't seem to make the equivalent of Liebfraumilch, so they end up exporting nothing.

Well, maybe it's different over in Geneva. But Geneva is weird, though many years ago I had a very nice meal among the vineyards somewhere in the vicinity.

i have an english friend who's lived here for years who assures me there is some really good swiss wine... so perhaps i just haven't tried hard enough to find it

If you happen to prefer the Australian styles (and why wouldn't you? There are some fine ones, though I did buy a half-case of Hardy's Crest Cab-Shiraz which was unexpectedly boring a little while back), then by all means go for Oz wines. There's a distinct advantage in liking a wine you can always get hold of. Swiss wines, though, I don't know how large some of the producers are. The ones running the tasting we went to produce a few thousand cases a year.

You could always ask your friend to provide a bottle of the stuff she or he likes. Or have a wine tasting session, so you can try some different ones out. That way, it's not you who has to do the finding.

i don't find the exported australian wines as good as the wines one can buy there. here i like to mix up a bit between "new world" wines, and bit of french and a bit of spanish. the choice can be overwhelming!

i'm chuckling at the thought of the questions you would have had to proudly agree with to come out as irish...

I'm mostly English and I scored as Belgian.

I am a little Belgian, but that's many generations ago.

Wonder if the original test-writer was from Belgium?

As an Austrian I'm feeling left out. How can you have the Swiss and the Germans but not us. ;) Will try it later, despite knowing I'll get Swiss or Italian, because I tend to get them.

Apparently I'm 88% Italian, and only 75% British. What's more worrying is that apparently I'm 63% Molvanian...!

Yes, I love the Molvanian option!
