They don't know what Frisbees are, and they don't sell cheez-whiz there, so how could they have appreciated Dominoes?

Using a real Italian recipe instead of American for their pizzas might have been a good first step.


Nah, that makes too much sense.

Domino's pizza in Italy is like Taco Bell in Mexico.  Of course there are no Taco Bell restaurants in Mexico.

I imagine it has more to do with lack of tourism, rather than lack of local support.
A great deal of American tourists prefer 'comfort' brands they're used to.
Heck, when my Dad did his WWII 'battle of the bulge' European tour, he was pushing 80 and said the best meal he had was McDonalds in Czechoslovakia.
I think the failure of Dominos' in Italy isn't about lack of 'local' support, but rather lack tourism and exchange students from the US.

Did you know you can bring Haggis into the USA on your flight?
However, the trick to that is instead of declaring it as a food product claim it as a cultural artifact.

You're thinking of Papa John's.  Domino's is pretty decent as far as chain pizza goes (which I know isn't saying much).

According to the article that's what they tried to do.  Seems like the use of "Domino's" was mostly for branding only.  Which is also kind of a weird choice.

This is so true. About 20 years ago I was in Rome. I visited the Pantheon around lunch time. There was a McDonald's nearby. When I exited the monument I saw about 20, clearly American, tourists each with a McD's bag between their legs sitting on some steps eating burgers. I just thought 'you've travelled at least 3,000 miles to the home of pizza and pasta and you've chosen to eat McDonald's'. I opted for a slice of pizza from a hole-in-the-wall restaurant around the corner.

On the subject of brands abroad, I had both Dominos and McDonalds while I was in India. The former was decent though with 10,000% more chili than in Europe. The latter was surprisingly good, with a localised menu. I particularly enjoyed the 'chicken Maharaja burger'. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Indian food and was happy to have it three times a day, but I was there eight months, so trying fast food Indian style was part of the experience.

Domino's is my new 'cheap pizza' place I go to since it's so close to me now.  There's a Little Caesar's right next door too but they got new owners and changed ingredients and raised prices.  The deep dish there used to be not bad for 8 bucks but now it's like almost $20 and literally like half the depth.  Lame.

Domino's is a 5 minute walk from me, but I only go there in a pinch.  My cat likes their pizza sauce.  I've go two Greek pizza joints a short walk away, but I still wish Papa Gino's didn't close.  Sometimes I like a nice Italian style crust.

Thing with me, being Scottish, and having had haggis most Burn's nights, I have no squick factor about haggis. I like it. The traditional serving of it with chappit neeps and tatties is a bit dull, because you basically end up with three heaps of food on your plate, and the nicest way to eat it is to create a kind of mix of all the elements in the middle of your plate. But you can do other stuff with haggis, like stuffing chicken breasts to do Balmoral chicken, with a nice whisky cream sauce. Or a nice tasty chip shop haggis pudding.

Funnily enough, I do get a bit of a squick factor about the idea of tripe as food, which is ironic because traditionally, haggis was stuffed in a sheep's stomach. Even though the stomach wasn't eaten.

/Never had a haggis that wasn't wrapped in plastic, though.

So basically now haggis are sheep sausage?

After a fashion, I guess, if you're counting offal stuffed into an organ as a sausage?

But like I said, I've never had a squick factor about haggis because I grew up eating it. And it's probably less squicky than low-quality pork sausages, for example.

still never once had haggis, sad to say :( and I don't imagine https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sundae_(sausage)* quite counts. but I did well used to enjoy both white and black puddings, so could easily see those going on pizza.

hunh, TIL: ojingeo sundae uses fresh squid, not pig/cow intestine, as the casing?! neat!

Now I have to find recipes for whisky cream sauce, because while finding haggis around here isn't possible it sounds like something that will go well with other things.

Yeah, it's pretty grim, but at least you'll probably hae a guid dram to take the edge off.

Like I already said, the tastiest way to eat haggis is probably stuffed in a chicken breast with a whisky cream sauce.

Start looking at au poivre. Not really whiskey cream but cognac/cream/pepper, ideas can be had from there. Never made a real whiskey cream sauce, but whiskey reduced for a while then au buerre is pretty great. Just stuff to think about to get you on the right track

If your food vacation comes down to a choice between Scotland and Norway may I suggest a tour of the food trucks of Oakland California as a third alternative? You can get Domino's there too, if you so desire.

I mean, the simplest way to do it is to just mix whisky, cream and pepper and reduce as appropriate. But doing a roux-based sauce works fine, too.

You and Hubes are pros, maybe you could lend an opinion... I have a recipe for duck liver paté that is made with cognac. It's so good I might let it put its dick in me. Now the recipe says scotch can used in place of the brandy. I'd probably go with an Islay smoke bomb, but it seems like it would fundamentally change the dish. Taking away that bit of sweet from the cognac and making it super savory instead. Plus I only make duck once or twice a year so I'm not exactly swimming in duck livers. A rare treat for me indeed. Thoughts?

I really don't have a ton of experience playing with booze other than wine in cooking, but it SEEMS like a smoky scotch would be a good flavor profile hit with the duck, in theory. Definitely deferring to Hubie on this one.
