"Japanese cuisine is the cuisine of Japan."[edit]

That's the most inane statement I've heard in a long time. Should we consider changing that to something that doesn't sound quite so... blatant? 108.7.150.102 (talk) 19:08, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

I agree. A lot of cuisine articles start like this, probably because they feel obligated to provide a definition rather than plunging into substance. Now, it's true that there are some nuances here. I'll use Chinese cuisine as an example, because it is messier than Japanese. Is Chinese cuisine the cuisine of the country of China? How about the cuisine of concentrated or dispersed diasporic communities? How about Uyghur cuisine (Xingiang), gastronomically much more Central Asian than "Chinese"? How about hybrid Chinese-X cuisine (e.g., Sino-Vietnamese, Chinese-American chow mein)?
I don't have a good solution. Even if more Japanese today eat 7-11 crème caramel than kaiseki, we somehow want to say that one is "more Japanese" than the other. Or do we? --Macrakis (talk) 18:56, 13 August 2016 (UTC)


"One soup, three sides"[edit]

This sounds to me like a quiz question about triangles. I guess from the "Use mdy dates" tag that this article is supposed to be in American, so can a native AmE speaker tell me if this really sounds OK to them? Actually the terms "main dish" and "side dish" are used in several places: e.g. "okazu or main dishes and side dishes". I cannot see that there is a meaningful dichotomy between "main" and "side" dishes: sure, you can think of tsukemono as "side", and a grilled fish might be "main", but there is no clear division. I suggest these should all be just "dish". Imaginatorium (talk) 05:17, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
