Every day I find something strange around the web…

Another false expert of Italian cooking that tries to mislead the wonderful recipe of ragù.

By the way, I’m sure you know, if you are used to reading my blog, that garlic is FORBIDDEN!!!! FORBIDDEN!!!!!

An Italian would never – I say NEVER – put oregano in the ragù. Why do people think we put bloody oregano anywhere?? We are not massive eaters of garlic and oregano as people think!

Mushrooms are not in the traditional recipe, but sometimes they can be added.

I ask once again: why do you say you give Italian recipes while you don’t really know what you are talking about? Do you want to piss off some Italian neighbour you hate? I don’t understand!

Abroad, even if a person has an Italian surname, it doesn’t mean that (s)he’s able to cook Italian food. Most people have an Italian surname but their families have been living abroad for generations.

Any doubt about the “Italianity” of a dish? Feel free to ask me!!!

Note: Obviously, my posts haven’t any intention of offending anybody or of criticizing the goodness, quality and tastes of any dish or recipe. What I write is just a personal consideration concerning the adherence of the recipe to the Italian ones, considering local habits, usages and traditions. The mood of the blog can be ironic and sometimes sarcastic, but with no aim of disappointing anybody. If somebody feels offended or struck by my words, please don’t. Moreover feel free to write me and explain your point of view (public channels like this blog are best welcome). It would be a pleasure for me. My intention is a constructive and sincere exchange of opinions.
