on the one hand, wow. chefs have come a long way, from invisible servant to "chef ambassador." on the other hand, mike isabella as a pseudo- dignitary to turkey... really? (hey mike, please don't embarrass us as a nation by serving your famous pepperoni sauce to your muslim hosts) on yet another hand, it is hard to argue with the xi jinping/ming tsai anecdote-- food as a natural vehicle to convey respect and cultural common ground... very chowish.

interested to hear comments
