Making Something that "Isn't" what "It Is"
There seems to be an epidemic around here lately of trying to make something that it isn't. There's a present thread about a "faux pizza". The other day there was a breakfast "poutine" featured on SE. Pizza is kinda well known as tomatoes and cheese on dough. Poutine is definitely a very specific dish, chips(french fries for all you non Canadians), covered with gravy and cheese curds. Can we stop calling things something they aren't?
