It’s here! I’m about to go get changed for the draft show – 49 minutes away, on ESPN2 – but I had to pass this along. Someone calling himself “SG” came across my post on Giada’s awful carbonara recipe and decided to have his say:
You’re making fun of the size of her head? Who notices her head? I’m usually checking our her massive cans. And whoever said she was making authentic Italian? Not her. It’s called “Everyday Italian,” numbnuts, meaning that they are easy recipes that are variations on classic Italian dishes or ones that are simply inspired by ingredients and techniques found in Italian cooking. She was born in Italy to Italian parents you know. Many of her recipes are handed down from her mother.
She has received formal training and has worked as a professional chef in notable restaurants. What the hell have you done?
If what this guy says is true … then Giada’s mother was a lousy cook, too.
I couldn’t just approve this priceless comment and let it lay buried on a long-forgotten thread. Enjoy!
