Italian Foods-what am I missing?

Phaedrus | Jun 25, 2004 10:59 AM

I am a great lover of foods, my preference is for Asian foods. I have seen people cook Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese foods and I can appreciate the work and skills it takes to make these foods.

As a fan of French foods, I can appreciate the artistry and finess it takes to get the cuisine just so.

But Italian food I don't get. I watch Molto Mario and I walk away shaking my head. What is the big deal?

Now, I love Italian food and I appreciate the subtlety inherent in its taste. I can see where there is complexity in some of the dishes. But most of the time, when I eat an Italian dish, I think: this is great and it is simple. It isn't like when I eat Chinese or French food where I think: I can never make this.

So what am I missing?
