Next Zimmerman's going to scream at us that spaghetti & meatballs isn't authentic Italian. And I'm sure in a couple years we'll be hearing from him that Tex-Mex is doing Mexican all wrong.

There's nothing wrong with wanting to experiment with different cuisines. That's how fusion dishes come about. Bourdain always said he found the best foods on the border lines where different cultures butted into each other. I remember him loving taco rice in Okinawa.

Zimmern's looking down his nose at American Chinese food - it's just such a weird take from the, "If it looks good, eat it!" guy.
