Not only on this board, but on other cooking/food boards, there is this
controversy about what IS authentic
Mexican ( or Asian, french, etc etc etc,
ad infinitum, ad nauseum.
I am just as concerned with authenticity
as anyone, but have found it very difficult
to define. I asked the question on this forum,
and haent gotten any definitive answers, and
thos who grumble most havent even BOTHERED to
respond at all.
Authentic is a very personable, objective term,
and has a lot to do with what each of us likes,
taste-wise, where we greew up or have lived,
what our Moms cooked for us, availability f ingredients, and on and on.
Not everything I post here is "authentic" to me,
but nevertheless comes out tasting well, or is
what someone has requested of the forum.
So, if you think something is NOT authentic,
please post your different, hopefully "better"
version. or if you dont have a version, try
varying one of the recipes to suirt your own
Then share with us!
I am BY NO MEANS the high priestess of Authentic Mexican Food.
I am, however, blessed to hsve traveled widely,
tssted, paid attention, asked questions, kept
notes, , and now that I am retired at age 48,
read, read, read & research, reseaarch, research.
