An article in the Times Online reports that some towns in Italy, which are governed by racist political groups, have banned “foreign food” – as if tomatoes and pasta were originally native of Italy!
The whole article is full of fail, such as the following:
Mr Zaia said that those ethnic restaurants allowed to operate â€œwhether they serve kebabs, sushi or Chinese foodâ€ should â€œstop importing container loads of meat and fish from who knows whereâ€ and use only Italian ingredients.
This wingnut politician also apparently refuses to eat pineapples and dares anyone to prove that he’s ever eaten a kebab 🙁 Not only that, but another nutjob says that the desire and ability to work longer hours than others in your industry is “anti-competitive”. That word; I do not think it means what you think it means.
Funnily enough though, French cuisine is not to be banned. However, there is confusion over Sicilian cuisine as it is influenced by Arabian cooking, especially in the number of citrus fruits in their dishes and the use of coucous. Wow! funny that, that the kneejerk policy of an irrational xenophobic organisation that is scared to live in the real world turns out to be irrational, full of stupidity and not thought through.
