The Japanese have sushi. The Italians have pasta, lasagna, meatballs, and gelato. The French have the most delectable pastries known to mankind.
And us? Well, apparently, we have Stovetop, Kraft mac and cheese, Baco’s, Fluff, and whatever the heck else is in this picture- you get the gist. One has to wonder…is THIS our contribution to the culinary world??? Passing by this store in Paris, just a stone’s throw from the Eiffel Tower, one would think so.
So there you have it folks…THAT, apparently, is the Real McCoy. They must hold us responsible for inflicting these digestive bombs on the world. Now, I know people are going to list the myriad disgusting food items that other countries offer, but think about it- we’re represented by BACO’S?!? I suppose the novelty of this place is supposed to be charming. Maybe an American far from home actually comes here for the so-called “comforts” of home. Maybe European’s get a kick out of the novelty. Or maybe they laugh at us. Now, far be it for me to condemn a continent for the thoughts of the few, but in becoming part of the food community and having always cooked for myself and others, I’ve realized how much this country has to offer and although our cuisine is a melting pot, there are new and exciting innovations all the time. Someone is always experimenting. Things are always evolving. Look at molecular gastronomy!
Lately, i’ve been eating breakfast. And it’s made a big difference in my energy levels. When I get my camera fixed, i’ll be able to post my meals. Big changes are coming, so stay tuned!
