Arrivederci Kebab

Several Italian cities this past week, including Milan, took the unusual step of banning any new ethnic food outlets from opening. The Italian Minister of Agriculture, Luca Zaia, is a staunch supporter of the foreign food ban. When asked if he had ever tasted a kebab, he replied with the following:

"No – and I defy anyone to prove the contrary. I prefer the dishes of my native Veneto. I even refuse to eat pineapple."
