What is Authentic

Lenox637 | Mar 1, 2009 06:37 AM

I always come across these little spats between hounders as to what constitutes authentic cooking. Whether it be Indian, Thai, Italian etc... Can we truly distinguish? Italy is made up of many areas that are diametrically different. Sicilian food is much different than that from Camagna.... then there are the influences of thousands of years of trade and conquest. I'm interested to know your thoughts about this subject and if you have any traditions that were handed down to you by family members.
