A customer had just finished dining in a fancy Italian restaurant in New York, and was so pleased with his meal that he asked the waiter if he could speak to the chef.
The waiter had a word with the owner, who proudly led the man into the kitchen and introduced him to the chef.
“Your veal parmigiana was amazing,” the customer said. “I just spent a month in Italy, and yours is far better than any I had over there.”
“Of course it is” the chef said. “Over there, they use domestic cheese. Ours is imported!”
