I totally agree about American restaurant food and I will include a lot of the recipes on the Food Channel.
I happen to be a native Texan who is allergic to hot spices, so eating Mexican food is pretty much out for me and don't get me started about Cajun food.
I was at a dinner after an event and ordered a steak. When the steak arrived you could tell that it was coated with pepper. No where on the menu was this stated. Luckily, the waitress was very understanding and took it back and brought me another steak prepared without the pepper. I find I cannot even eat pizza, canned pasta dishes and especially so-called diet frozen dinners have become impossible for me to eat because of the spices. Well, scratch the pizza because I am lactose intolerant so I shouldn't have it anyway...and I love a good pizza!
I wish the powers that be would understand that spicing something does not mean peppering the pure unadulterated kaka out it!
Just my two shekels worth.
