If you ask me, Europeans have always been culinarily advanced than us peons across the pond. It takes decades sometimes to catch up to you!

We have such an abundance of fresh produce available year round, and while having dried fruit on the plate is nice, it shouldn't be the only option here.

How about we get a new thread started about the cheese course?
