Ah, the age-old debate - what is the most important thing in life? Is it money? Fame? Power? For centuries, people have argued about the answer to this question, but perhaps we can finally put an end to the debate. The answer? Food.

Yes, that’s right - but food is often a subject of misconceptions, especially foreign food, and when it comes to correcting those misconceptions ... well, ain’t nobody got time for that, as they used to say back in the late ’10s. We’re all so busy these days, running from one place to another, working hard to make ends meet, that we barely have time to eat, let alone think or read about what we’re eating. 

So, in an effort to help us all make the most of our time, we’ve compiled a list of these misconceptions in the hope that, between bites of food and glancing at (more recent) memes, you might find the time to correct those misconceptions. From the Americanized Italian classic of spaghetti and meatballs to the weird ideas we have about Chinese food, this list has it all.
