Tragic on many levels. Homogenization and the loss of cultural diversity. It must have been much more emuch more interesting and exotic to travel and discover the world in Marco Polo's day. Now it's a lot more sameness.

This is true. They are selling the same food from the same companies here in Canada as well as in Germany in the meantime.

There's no doubt fusion-cooking from different cultures can be pretty delicious. Fusion is good but homogenization or blah and boring.
