essay expret on food culture

"Amelia Goldwin" (2017-08-10)

There is an unfortunate tendency in the U.S. to equate price with quality -- in the world of food it is likely the result of us not having a real 'tradition' of our own, and hence tending to look elsewhere for standards of excellence. As writer I think Ms. Gomez is falling prey to that herself, in that she would have no difficulty admitting that a home-cooked meal from somewhere in her home in India is in fact her goal, yet at the same time she feels it needs to be priced on par with a 'fine' french restaurant in the U.S. Nonsense. There's no relation between price and quality, as we all know. There are no end of OUTSTANDING regional mexican restaurants (or taco trucks...) in California, and they have no difficulty being home-style restaurants, not needing any validation from anglo culture that might come from high prices.
