Italian food doesn't really exist at least not as a unified category..

Hogwash, as you well know.

What some consider Italian varies, of course. There are lots of different regions in Italy. Go to each one (providing you can either walk or have the proverbial $1,M.) Sample all, Betcha you'll only find some in NY City, ye olde Tor....., or Sudbury.

Yet, your small Italian wedding in each of these N. Am. sites will be at least 500 people and lots of true Italian (as from Great Grandma Italy)

What they are really saying is that what the average non-traveler thinks makes up "Italian cuisine" is nothing like the real thing.

Same thing with most other ethnic cuisines. The average Chinese restaurant is no where near to the real thing. The average Mexican restaurant is no where near to the real thing. Not only are there many variations on a dish, but there are a multitude of dishes not see in the average restaurant outside of that country.

It's interesting that the author of the article in question makes the comment, "Oxfam determined that pasta was the world’s #1 favorite food" as a statement that "Italian" food is the world's most popular. Pasta, as you know, was invented in China, so maybe Chinese food IS the most popular after all.

I would expect that rice was consumed world wide far more than pasta.

Several groups in my bicycle club have done tours in Italy, and the opinion expressed, no matter the region toured, that you can't get a bad meal in Italy.

There are many sub-generas of Italian food but it's silly to claim there is no Italian food.

Then again most people don't realize that the USA is an older country than Italy if you want to play at semantics but most sane people won't claim the history of the Italian peninsula is younger.
