One can never get enough carbon in one's diet!!!
Next time, can I get mine a little crispier, please?  I want to make sure that it is cooked all the way through.
 I couldn't agree more!!!
Not a bad article.  I would have to disagree with just a couple of points.  First of chocolate; now I agree that compared to lots of chocolate in Europe, our massed produced stuff is not that great, but I've eaten a number of British, mass produced chocolate treats, and IMHO that are not good at all.  Secondly, sausages;  the US has lots of awesome sausages.  Maybe the author needs to taste something other than the American "Italian" sausages that I assume he is refering...
@AllanMcPherson I have to admit I have not heard of that one yet.  I will definitely have to check it out.  Although I prefer Bourbon, I am always on the lookout for new and interesting whiskies to try!
 I couldn't agree more, especially when it comes to something as subjective as food.  And no matter what the OP thinks food is a subjective experience.  Yes, we can quantify, and objectify, certain aspects of food, of the dining experience, but as a whole  it's a very subjective thing.  As I stated before, I have nothing against French cuisine at all.  Some of my favorite dishes are French, some of my favorite wines are French, and some of my favorite cheeses are French,...
And speaking of biased, there have been many, many complaints leveled against Michelin as being biased towards Franco-centric food so of course those chefs, in those 2 & 3 starred Michelin restaurants would be biased towards French cuisine.  If you don't believe me, a quick google search will come up with many articles written by those that feel that other cuisines don't get a fair shake from Michelin.
 This I think gets to the heart of the matter.  I love French cuisine, but I don't think of it as the end all, be all of cuisine.  There are many great cuisines as complex and with a history as long or longer than French cuisine.  I'm thinking of Indian cuisine with its complex layering of flavors and spices.  I'm thinking of Chinese cuisines which are varied, complex, and very influential in today's multi-cultural food scene. French cuisine is not as popular as it once...
Great looking curry!!!
