"culinary racism"

Ciao Italia Foodie | Feb 9, 2009 01:31 PM

Did anyone else read in this issue of Time Magazine " What they are banning in Tuscany" ?

Looks as if the city council of Lucca , Italy's Tuscany region, is taking a big step to "safeguard Lucca's traditional cultural Identity"
They passed a rule denying licenses for any non-Italian restaurants in town!
Now In Lucca , Thanks to this rule,you will not find kebabs,Peking duck and even the almighty Big Mac is out! McDonald's banned ! Therefore being dubbed as "culinary racism"

Now I'm usually against racism of any kind <unless you consider my hatred against ugly shoes such as crocks racist> I say BRAVO LUCCA BRAVO !
Salute Lucca, and here's to tradition.
What do you think?
