What is your take on the term "authentic?" As an example, at various time, people have asked or questioned about certain foods as being authentic.
Just what is "authentic?" Hearkening back to my Thailand background, a few have mentioned authentic Pad Thai. Recalling my many memories, it was different at every vendor. Likewise, was the raw pork larb which hailed from northern Thailand any less authenic that the poached pork of the central Thailand region? The same could be said of signature dishes of any area of the world.
Your thoughts on the term "authenic" when applied to food.
