In need of fans of ethnic food who are under 30

Josh Harkinson | Nov 8, 2004 06:09 PM

I am a staff writer with the Houston Press and I am working on a story about the generation gap in food etiquitte. My impression is that many young people tend to care less about how to hold a fork or where to wear a dinner jacket than about how to properly eat an imperial roll (wrap it in lettuce) or dine at an Ethiopian joint (use your bare hands). Compared to the boomer generation, young people of all ethnicities are less concerned about the old rules than about when and how to break them (rules, in other words, are site specific). If you agree with this perspective, and you fashion youself an expert on non-european cuisine, then I'd like to get together with you for dinner. Please email me ( with a few brief thoughts on this and I'll get back to you about getting together with a group like minded people, possibly this weekend or early next week.
