American Food vs French Food with Estelle Tracy, part 2

Estelle Tracy

The other day at lunch, a friend asked me what I missed about American food.

My answer? Mexican food!

One of the things I love about the US is the variety of food that’s easily available. Typical American, Mexican, Lebanese, Chinese, Italian, you name it.

And then we got on to a very long discussion on American food because everyone loves talking about food. Don’t you?
