I recently heard that Japan wants to begin a certification program of its national dish, sushi. I can understand how the thought of someone imitating what is considered a work of art in the native land in a less than acceptable traditional manner would be frustrating. And as with any art form, there will always be experimentation from new artists in an attempt to find their “voice”. Maybe all nations should set up similar certification programs for their respective national culinary art, to ensure authenticity of adherence to acceptable technique, texture, consistency, flavor, visual pleasure, plating, etc. prior to any eatery globally being able to claim the title (or present the impression) of being a facility serving authentic cuisine. And for those individuals who gain pleasure from thinking outside the box and being creative in their chosen art form, all the while bringing pleasure to those who enjoy new edible creations? I guess those facilities could post “******-inspired” (fill-in the culture or cuisine that brought the initial spark of creativity) on the menus and/or billboard.
