America does not have a good food culture. Sorry, but it's true.

Ein netter Artikel über die verschiedenen Esskulturen der Welt im Verhältnis zu den USA.

Food in the US isn’t central to our identities, not yet at least. It is still largely a utilitarian and transactional thing— something necessary to get enough calories, hopefully tasty ones, to stop being hungry and keep working. That’s very different from most of the world which views meals as a social occasion that’s far more than about getting fed. At the very best they aim to be something transcendent. It’s as if they see everyday as a small Thanksgiving, at least in attitude, if not in the amount of food served.
