Polish term or phrase: cudze
w 'cudze chwalicie swego nie znacie'w kontekscie kulinarnym. W glosariuszu znalazlam: 'you glorify the foreign, but you don't know your own'

(http://www.proz.com/?sp=h&id=510081&keyword=cudze) and I am quite incline to use it. Still, I was wondering if anyone has got any other suggestion?
