I didn't mean that as broadly as it sounds. Canned tomatoes are one thing but canned chiles are something else. Not sure I can come up with a solid principle for this, but I hope you get my meaning

.40, I might try your recipe. I don't actually like chili much, but maybe I haven't had the right one

The International Chili Society website liste past chili cook-off champions. If you click on the winner's name, the recipe is listed.

This attitude kills me every time I run across it. The ones that get to me most are the ones who have been eating Indian Restaurant food for decades and think that is the be-all and end-all of Indian food. While it can be very good in it's own right, what it ACTUALLY is is an Americanized version of the British version of mostly Pakistani/Punjabi food.

So when someone tells me that my Andhra MILs version of some dish or other is inauthentic, I have to laugh. The woman was born, lived, and died in India and never so much as laid eyes on a Westerner in person until her son married one, LOL! Then they'll tell you that actual Indians don't REALLY know how to cook Indian food! But they, having never set foot in India (or perhaps having been there once 30 years ago), know more about Indian cuisine than the people who cook and eat it every day.

Of course there isn't One True Paella. That's like saying there is One True Soup. There isn't One True version of any dish. Human beings are changing things around all the time, that's one of our few charms. If we didn't, we'd all still be eating seeds and grubs, LOL!

I agree, KB. I recall some years ago having a "discussion" with a guy with Hungarian roots about how his recipe for Hungarian goulash was THE authentic version and you couldn't change one ingredient and have it still be authentic.

Make Sure You Use The Correct Recipe ;-) I live in a place which falls somewhere between being a very small town and a very large village. Today was our annual food and drink festival - all the restaurants and food shops and the local craft brewery had stands in the main street and the Womens' Institutute and various interest groups and charities were selling home made cakes, pickles and jams, home grown fruit and veg, etc. I was at the local Spanish restaurant's stand where, among other goodies, they were making and selling paella I was very much amused when a woman in her 60s, so about my age, started berating the (Spanish) chef about the paella not being a "real" one. The basis of her argument was that she had eaten paella once in Spain when she was 15 years old and it wasn't like this. I was sorely tempted to tell her that I'd spent several years in Spain when I was younger and had been taught to make paella by a Spaniard but none of the many paellas I've eaten, including my own, has ever been the same as the previous one I ate. I've had them with all shellfish or shellfish and rabbit or chicken or hake or all of them or no shellfish at all and once a vegetarian paella (which was delicious). I even went to a beach party when host was going to cook the paella on a portable stove and, spotting a plastic carrier bag on a chair, I opened it and discovered a live wild duck looking enquiringly up at me. And yes, the poor thing [I]was[/I] destined for the paella! Fortunately good manners topped revulsion and I ate my share of the poor thing. (I'm not averse to eating dead animals, I just don't like to be introduced to them while they are still alive.) 3 stars 1 reviews
