Article on Italian international culinary police in WSJ

Alan Divack | Apr 14, 1999 08:35 PM

The front page of today's Wall Street Journal had an
article about a "buoyantly corpulent" Italian expat who
goes around to so-called Italian restaurants in NY
(there are people like this all over the world) to see
if what they serve really rates as authentic Italian
food. Restaurants certified as authentic get some
kind of hecksher from th president of Italy.

It is a great article and I heartily recommend it.
