I am by no means a food connoisseur of any kind or have much knowledge of the worlds cuisines, but while enjoying dinner last evening a thought had occurred to me. How much of the US diet consists of a dipping sauce as part of the meal anymore?
It occurs to me that ketchup and ranch sauce are the two biggest dipping sauce choices in the US (at least from my perspective), but over the past five years or so I have seen a plethora of other sauces come into existence. It is with those last couple of thoughts that I have come to the conclusion that we are probably abusing the dipping privilege in comparison to other countries. Especially when it comes to having a dipping sauce and the meal you are enjoying doesn’t require one.
