Harrison Jacobsis, the author of the article, is not Chinese. You can ask him why he describes food as delicious. By the way, I love eating chicken feet.

This is one rare, very rare, instance where I have to agree with you.
My brother in law and his two sons always describe every food as "delicious".

person herself, always scolded me for being such a picky eater.
My wife calls me "trouble mouth".
I know you'll have a field day with that comment.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

In ancient China there was such a saying:”Graceful gentleman always keep a far distance from cooking!" ----------------which means that scholars should work hard with simple food!
All of our writings should go with zero error!
