    Eh, Drez, there really aren't wine "experts," just people that are passionate about wine with an extensive knowledge of what goes into a "good" wine, and a variety of brands/types. A lot of studies have shown that most wine experts are rather clueless lol.

    I guess I did rattle off a lot. But the point is, I'd take a burger, pasta, cheesesteak/chicken cheesesteak, deli sandwich, etc. over any Greek food.

    Sautéed broccoli in fresh garlic, olive oil, and salt/pep -- that's not doing it for you?

    Yeah, I know what you mean. But, still, while I know a bit about wine, it's mostly very basic. I'd definitely need help from a sommelier to set up and run a wine bar. Also, if I had a sommelier, I could justify charging more for the wine, lol.

    That's one of two ways I don't mind cooked broccoli. The other is in cheese sauce. And by cheese sauce, I mean the orange, processed **** that they serve at buffets, lol.

    I hear ya. But, even thought you're 100% Greek, you're still 100% American, too. I have no idea what the cultural food heritage of your house was growing up, but it seems you adopted the American palette.

    I'm 50% Italian, so I grew up with a lot of Italian food. But, if there's one foreign cuisine that has immersed itself into the American cultural tongue, it's Italian. Speaking of which, I need my mom to teach me how to make my grandmother's pasta e ***ioli recipe. I suppose I should ask about the braciole, too.

    Well my dad was born here in the states, but my mom came over when she was 23. She cooks everyday, but I don't eat her food outside of lentils, avgolemeno, and her more Americanized foods. Doesn't help that she's an average cook lol.

    Yup. That's why I hate my genetics. High blood pressure and cholesterol run in my family, so I have to put the kibosh on most of the stuff I love. Luckily, despite the fact that I admittedly am overweight by a fair measure, my cholesterol wasn't too high. I'm hoping if I get my *** back to the gym and drop a few I can resume my hedonistic foodie lifestyle.
