#9 Eating fish wasn't invented in Portugal and I'm quite sure they didn't eat it with chips in 800 AD.

Wilfred,
what part you didn't understand ?
1 - "Portugal bought a centuries-old Andalusian dish called peshkado frito to the UK in the 1400s"
and .......................................
2 - "when the potato became popular in the 1800s, they made the perfect accompaniment"
and ......................................
3 - "Now you know where “fish and chip Friday” comes from!"

It'd be nice to include sources to support these points. A summary Google search of "origins of churros" does not highlight any ties to China...

origins of churros


Actually, a quick Google search for "origins of churros" turns up the following link about the 4th entry down, and does mention China.

#2 I'll call BS on shaking cream in freezing temperatures makes ice cream, it would only get you cold butter.
But I do see where you got the idea, "Iced Cream". Why would anyone be out in freezing weather with a bag of Cream unless the churn hadn't been invented yet. 27

#8 Swedish meatballs: For the meat part usually just ground beef. Perhaps mixed with pork sometimes but never only pork.

#3 i would say that croissant originates from the victory of Hungarians against the ottoman empire (the only empire that contributed with nothing to the world) that is why it has the half moon shape.

Where we think doughnuts are from: the USA (New York).

Where doughnuts are really from: Greece.

Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispie Kreme are just a couple of big American brands that have made a global name for themselves purely through the sale of this incredible dessert. But doughnuts aren’t the American all-stars you might have thought they were. Though they didn’t have the distinctive ring shape, the earliest version of the doughnut as we know it today is generally traced back to when Dutch settlers brought them over from Europe to New York (or New Amsterdam as it was known then).

But Greece is where the heart of the doughnut lies. Loukoumades as they’re known are essentially small doughnut balls covered in honey and walnuts. They’re considered to be the oldest recorded dessert too, dating right back to the first Olympic Games in 776 BC, where they were presented to the winners as “honey tokens”.
