Same brand of pasta, but Europeans get gluey mush in 1 country, proper Durum in another
Sometimes, when you move from one country to another, things look, even taste, different. That was Ilya Kunes's experience when he moved back to the Czech Republic from France. Things definitely tasted different. Even the same famous brand of Italian spaghetti he had bought in France. That seemed odd. He checked. His Czech-bought spaghetti contained a far smaller percentage of expensive Durum wheat than the French variety.
