Angry Italians Call Out Offensive Attempts At Their Cuisine

Many food publications have come under fire recently for either completely bastardizing a culture's cuisine, or neglecting to correctly credit a dish's influence. While we've enjoyed all the drama surrounding Bon Appetit's various failings, the latest culprit of food crimes is none other than The New York Times. 

The publication stoked the ire of readers back in 2018 when they referred to Yorkshire Pudding, an English supper special, as a dessert. Their latest misstep? Publishing a recipe for a dish called "Smoky Tomato Carbonara."

For those of you who may not be versed in Italian cuisine, they take their recipes - and methodologies - very, very seriously. Carbonara is a pasta dish (usually using Spaghetti) that combines guanciale (pork jowl), black pepper, pecorino cheese and egg to create a wonderfully rich and savory treat. Unfortunately, especially stateside, many home and professional chefs bastardize this preparation either by using substitutions such as bacon for guanciale, or, even worse, adding cream to the sauce. While the dish does have a creaminess to it, the decadence comes from the last step of the cooking process, when a mixture of raw egg is added to the cooked pasta while off the heat. It cooks into a creamy coating when done correctly. Adding cream or milk isn't just a cop out, to many Italians it's a sin. 

If the addition of dairy or use of bacon is so offensive, it's no wonder this "smoky tomato" recipe has inspired such animosity. And Italians are not ones to mince words. One chef from Rome, the 'Carbonara King' Alessandro Pipero, told Corriere della Sera "It would be like putting salami in a cappuccino or mortadella in sushi. OK, fine, but then let's not call it sushi, similarly with this one – carbonara with tomato is not carbonara. It's something else." Other opponents chose to voice their disgust on Twitter - mostly in response to the tweet that was supposed to promote the controversial recipe. But the condemnation of bastardized Italian dishes on social media is nothing new. In fact, one of our favorite Twitter accounts is an impressive archive of heated, angry comments in response to images of ketchup-soiled pasta, or pizzas with pineapple on them. The account, Italians Mad At Food, has been pumping out the entertainment since 2015, and has amassed a pretty impressive following of 100k fans. If you're entertained by this kind of food criticism, you'll definitely enjoy the screenshots they so diligently upload. We've put together our favorites from the last month or so for your convenient enjoyment, but you can see more on Twitter as well as on their newer Instagram. The anger and scathing remarks really never get old.

Twitter Users Share The Most Heinous Food They Bought At Sports Events

While it cannot be denied that people don't go to sports matches for the food, this Twitter thread reveals that stadiums and arenas really need to do better in the food department. Twitter user @elliotwhu started the cringey hubbub when he posted a photo of a heinously long sausage, and asked his followers to share their own disappointing concession purchases. The responses include scarring turd-shaped mounds of meat and an impressive number of sad sausages. The thread offers up some gleeful culinary cringe, but we don't advice scrolling right before a meal. You're likely to lose your appetite.

Trashy Moments That Belong In A Landfill

It's said that times like these bring out the best in people. And that might be true for a percentage of the population. But we're willing to bet that the sad souls below won't be contributing anything but cringe to society during this difficult time. Some of them (ahem, daft mask protesters) could even kill  their fellow humans. We'll never not be disturbed by this kind of trashiness, but these insane people remind us to live compassionately and with intelligence.

Feast Your Eyes On The 'Nacho Hack' That's Horrifying The Internet

It has been two days since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers crushed the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV. People have quieted down about The Weeknd's incredibly memeable halftime performance. Hopefully, all the buffalo wing sauce has exited your bowels quickly and painlessly. You'd think the Sunday Funday would be a distant memory. But, alas. The internet is still reeling from one influencer's mindboggling attempt at a "nacho hack," a scarring and arguably revolting gift that was meant to help people who are apparently struggling to serve the decadent food that is prevalent during the "Big Game."

On the same day as the Super Bowl, Facebook user Adley uploaded a video of an unknown woman showing viewers how to hack their own nachos. This is not something new for Adley's page - it's absolutely littered with clickbaity pranks and unnecessary products. But when this brunette opened a gigantic can of Velveeta and proceeded to pour it onto her pristine kitchen island, all bets were off.

After spreading the garishly orange cheese product around with her bare hands, our mystery woman adds the following: obviously cold beef, a can of black beans, wilted bagged lettuce, a container of sour cream, "guacamole," pickled jalapenos, and cold shredded cheese. The whole thing is a mess. You'd think that the display was over here, but you would also be dead wrong. It actually gets worse. 

Following a liberal dusting of packaged taco seasoning, our "chef" proceed to use two putty knives (yes, the ones for spackle) to mix the unholy mix of ingredients into a vomit-esque blob. But what are nachos without the chips? While normally the dish consists of tortilla chips that are sensually layered with sumptuous ingredients, this woman has other plans. She dumps a bag of chips on top of the gross and gooey mass, and again uses her bare hands to crunch and then fold the chips into the cheesy mess. She then uses an ice cream scoop to fill a TORTILLA cone with the "nachos" and takes a hammy bite out of it. 

If you're feeling shook by this "hack" you're definitely not alone. After @PettiBetti shared the cringey display on Twitter, the post quickly went viral. People absolutely love to tear down crimes against food, and this is a pretty heinous crime. While some people decried the "chef's" use of ingredients and the fact that she was serving NACHOS in a CONE, other people seemed to be more triggered by her lack of gloves. Obviously, some people took issue with both. We've put together some of the horrified responses, because they're hilarious. But if you for some reason want to subject yourself to the full dose of insanity, you can do so right here. Just try not to watch while you're eating.
