Food and its connections to our inner deeper emotional world  and how /why we feel insulted if people turn up their nose at what’s out in front of them – it’s not like home – whatever that is – and it’s not what you expect – it’s a statement of this is who we are, like it or not, and if you reject it, you reject us, and for all your laughter and hilarity and our liberal flexibility, this moment when a gulf of difference between us appears – says so much about our difference in our upbringing and emotional connections and ties -culture is too simplistic a word to express how we do things and how -if you’re not of our culture – how we expect you to do things..

The process of going to a restaurant is one of a microcosm of assimiliation, acculturation or rejection, of (in)tolerance and (dis)respect -and fear.
