Chefs Criticize 'Americanized' Food

I'm trying to find this article on Yahoo News; I weould
post it (it was a repost), but in deference to our
fearless leader I'm hesitant. In it, Associated Press
writer DONNA ABU-NASR writes about how international
chefs in this country and their home countries tell how
the Americanized versions of dishes are horribly
mangled.

"Although qualified chefs and proper ingredients are
generally more available in recent years, many chefs
still Americanize their ethnic dishes merely to please
American palates. The result, critics say, is food
that's heavy, creamy, thick and sweet with clashing
flavors."
