It is… everything.
Most I get around here are gators, meth addicts and small critters like racoons, armadillos and possums. Rural florida living.
Armadillos on meth would be a change of pace…
i’m getting really tired of the way ‘authenticity’ is talked about w/r/t immigrant food in america. people rag on americanized chinese food, for example, but it’s still mostly cooked by chinese immigrants and developed in response to differences in local taste and the kinds of ingredients available. there are a ton of super talented immigrant chefs whose work will never receive the kind of money or prestige or resources that a white fusion chef who has no cultural connection to the cuisine will.
