I have had Italian food in other places (not Italy as I am sure you can't compare that to anywhere-lol!!) and it is NOWHERE near the type of Italian food we have.

Oh, I am not saying there are "good" places all over. I actually LOVE an Italian Restaurant in Bermuda and find their ravioli to be the best I have ever had. Ask anyone who has moved from my area though and the first things they want when they come back is pizza, chinese food, bagels, pastries....It is just not the same.

Why would they want to eat crap like pizza, chinese food, bagels and pastries? None of that (by the generic use of the word here) has much appeal - especially to someone who is culinarily sophisticated.

I disagree and agree, the mass marketed pizza, chinese food, bagels and pastries....totally agree, the upscale versions of those it would depend.

I'm not saying you don't have wonderful "pizza, bagels, chinese food, pastries.....etc....etc...." where you live, IYO. You just don't have the a standing to make a convincing debate point because of your limited experience.

I guess when you have never experienced good pizza, chinese food, bagels and pastries..I could definately see where you are coming from-lol!!

Culinarily sophisticated? Bawahhha....I am sorry...are you speaking from your weekly menu's now?-lol

That's not a logical conclusion.

Perhaps you need to use more Ragu and chicken nuggets in your menu?
