I think it would be a pizza because you can divide it into fractions and halfs and is interesting and different as maths is.

Butter: In a master's hands, it can produce beautiful results. Amateurs can use it enhance their own products, but doing it wrong creates a soggy mess.

I don't know what it would be, but I am certain it would taste just like chicken. :wink:

Plain loaf. It is basic and essential, but made with the right technique and good ingredients, it can be absolutely amazing without the need of extra flavouring

As I'm half-Asian, my answer would be rice. It is basic and essential, and can serve as a prime ingredient for a wide range of material (food for rice, research fields for math).

This is very interesting :woot: I am full-Asian and the first thing came to my mind was a loaf of bread. Probably more to do with having lived most of my life in New Zealand though.
Fun fact: bread is popular but disgustingly expensive in China, I guess it's a matter of projection.

πz2a!
After the math teacher told the class that the area of a circle is πr2, the Kentucky mountain man said:

"Pie are not square! Pie are round! Cornbread are square!"

Oh come on! If Math was food there is only one real answer: Chocolate! Nothing so bitter could taste so sweet with just a little imagination.

I once went to a wedding where instead of one cake, there were exactly e cakes cut into pieces so that each piece was 1, 1, 1/2, 1/6, 1/24, and so on. A cake such as this possesses infinite surface area and is therefore infinitely delicious. The bride and groom were geniuses. All anyone had to do was take an infinitesimally small slice off the end and there were still e cakes leftover at the end of the wedding.

Banach-Tarski cake. You cut the cake into pieces and then reassemble the pieces to get two cakes each identical to the original.
