    Default Olive Garden

    Hi friends:

    I just come to USA in January from Indonesia for higher studies. Two
    American things I enjoy very much are the football and Italian food.
    Yesterday I eat in the restaurant call Olive Garden. The food was so
    delicious! Where I can get recipe for the Italian dishes they serve?

    Thanks

    The Italian food will be better at an independently run restaurant.
    Think of Mamma and Pappa in the kitchen.
    Olive Garden is just a big chain and all the food is much too salty
    and NOT made with love.

    Believe it or not, there are places in the US where Olive Garden is the
    ONLY choice for Italian food and Taco Bell for Mexican. Everyone is not
    fortunate enough to live in a multi-ethnic, authentic food paradise.

    If he enjoyed the food, so be it.

    And even when there is a "family" place that doesn't mean the "family"
    is Italian. Was in the local pizza place the other day, asked if my
    take out order was ready, the girl at the register goes "Hey, Sergei . .
    .." I don't think "Sergei" is Italian.

    It's like I've always said, I've been to NYC and ate the pizza there
    and it was delicious. But I know you can find pizza just as good by
    going to out of the way mom and pop places in Savannah or Santa Fe or
    Spokane or Topeka or Toledo. Keep away from the chain places whenever
    possible and look for the family run restaurants.

    True dat. Most of the folks in RSFC are probably better off eating out than
    attempting to cook in between following random, mostly political arguments,
    and the obligatory monthly on topic college sports thread.

    Large potatoes have less flavor - it is more concentrated in small potatoes.

    I went there once. I had genuine Italian mashed potatoes on the side. I
    asked the waitress if risotto or polenta was an option. "What?"

    Um... No. Sure you can find sucky pizza in NY but they also have very good
    pizza.
    But then I suppose it depends on what you look for in a pizza. If you want
    a thick crust you won't like it.

    And even if the "family" is Italian, that doesn't mean they are actually
    cooking Italian dishes. Just a couple days ago I watched a TV program about
    italians in New Jersey in the 30's, it talked about this miner who came from
    Sicily and knew nothing about cooking and set up a restaurant where he
    cooked what he remembered from his mother and grandmother kitchen. Problem
    is: since a man never helped women cooking, he did know zero about those
    recipes. Random dishes, just that. It's very similar to the chinese people
    setting up restaurants here in Italy: people from southern china who worked
    in anything except cooking, so we get dishes of fake chinese cuisine made by
    real chinese people.
