1. Authenticity is over-rated.
In the history of humanity, food has by and large sucked. Give me the innovations made possible by technology and plentiful supplies of food that was once only available to kings.

5. Two years ago, for Christmas dinner
I made something called "Indian pudding" from an "authentic" recipe. It sucked.

"Authentic" hasn't meant as much to me since then.

10. I'm w/ you on this
in a big way. Taste is far more important than authenticity.

The only authenticity I like is Mid-West Church Supper Covered Dish - whatever gets you through the winter, Stosh.
