Is it an authenticity thing? I can also be an authenticity-snob at times... lol! Whenever someone refers to an egg omelet with green peppers, salsa, etc... as a Spanish Omelet, I just tell them, "No, that's Mexican, a Spanish Omelet would have potatoes, onions, and garlic..."
Just like Lasagna, even! Did you know that if you put meat in lasagna, it really isn't a real lasagna anymore? And real Tiramisu doesn't have uncooked eggs in it... Don't get me wrong, I love experimenting with recipes, etc... in fact, I love meat "lasagna", but just think the history/origin of food is cool, too.
