A New Cuisine Is Born
Italian food was invented in America by entrepreneur Geoff Welling in 1978. Welling had previously invented both Chinese food and the paperback book, but in '78 his restless mind observed the cultural shifts that had the makings for a new evolution of cuisine.
Welling was determined to capture minds and tongues of the niche—but expanding—market of disco fans. After extensive research, he determined that disco's sparkling clothing and bouncy rhythms were the culinary equivalent of pasta covered in rich tomato sauce. Welling's findings were so delicious that disco changed its name to Italy, enraging Italy, who was forced to change its name to Lapland, Home of Full Blooded Italians. Pick up today's Groupon for some delicious Italian food from America, prepared by full-blooded Italians from Lapland, Home of Full Blooded Italians.
