Monstrous Carbonara makes the Italians despair
A Facebook user shared a picture of his carbonara to a group, and people are saying it looks so bad he's 'obviously given up on life'.
After the pizza with kiwi, another abomination has landed on social media.
Another culinary abomination makes Italy tremble...
Steven S shared a photo of his "carbonara" in the Facebook group 'Rate my plate' and many people did not hold back.
For the absent-minded, we recapitulate the carbonara: eggs, pecorino cheese, bacon and pepper. Nothing else.
A simple guide to cooking one of the most loved Italian dishes
I look the photo, I see things and do not understand what they are — Würstel, plastic 'cheese' square, and... broken spaghetti from a tin, which would be an abomination even without the sauce.
One person said: "That is literally the least effort you could go to make yourself a meal. You have obviously given up on life."
Or: "Now that my friend is one of the worst things I have seen on this page. I wonder what you had to drink with it – a nice glass of vinegar? That's a bit like wine isn't it?"
Another added: "In what world is that carbonara??? Italians everywhere are weeping over this monstrosity."
We really care about our food, like, really care about it.
That we Italians are pedantic about food is well known, but from abroad they are committed to giving us reasons to be so!
So why don't we try this way: cook what you want, but don't call it Italian food, unless it's D.O.C.
Can it work? ;-)
