All you are missing Maureen, is about the luxury standing on unsustainability, though it is very enjoyable... You can have food from all over the world and all over climate and all seasons all year long.

Like you said Cecile, Europeans did all kinds of different things with cabbage, to add some taste variety. I'll use that same cabbage in a chow mein, or a slaw for tacos, or braised in cream along side some braised meat. I can cook almost anything I like better than a restaurant. So, for me, it's not about convenience, it's about taste. I'm not going to spend two hours today making egg rolls because of convenience.

Artists even know this, that is why they also invented poetry, you need more creativity than prose.
Those days I feast on bananas, they all ripen and I still have a few kilos... Maureen I understand your dreams, we have them because we moved from a culture to another, and memory is strong, especially taste!

Pork and chicken are defined as omnivores, which means animal protein can comprise significant parts of their diet. Although certain ads tout 100% grain fed and vegetarian meats, it's a fact those species are not normally vegetarian. And those are two meats I much prefer to be fully cooked. As an inlander, I never ate much ocean fish, and precious little freshwater fish, but seeing the beautiful art produced by a master sushi chef makes me regret not trying raw fish. However, there's a reason for sushi to be made from fish frozen for a specified period of time.
