    Is this the person we're talking about? Just making sure it's the right person I'm thinking of. I wouldn't want to hijack the discussion to anything that's off-topic.

    'Don't eat that! It's got Marmite on it!'

    'Don't care! Purdy lady serves me food - I eat it!'
  • Italians biatch if anybody makes anything that isn't exactly the way they'd do it. You can safely ignore.

    Not even sure WTF Marmite is, but it sounds disgusting.
  • I'm not sure why, but I'm always surprised that people still eat pasta.  I'm not insulting pasta-eaters, it's just been so long since I've had it I kind of forget that it's really popular, versatile, and tasty.  Maybe I'll make some this weekend.

    I'm not sure, have you got a better picture?

    I think everybody does this.  Southern cuisine, Mexican cuisine, Thai cuisine - it's all arch-conservative.   Any change to the template is "fake" or "cultural appropriation", not innovation or evolution.

    fairly certain it's like the preparation of garum/liquamen, but using filthy street urchins instead?

    Marmite is the English equivalent of soy sauce.  A thick paste that tastes of umami and salt.

    And like many other things in England, overcooked so that it also tastes burnt and bitter.

    scrapings from beer vats. what's not to like?
  • I know that Marmite is a love it, hate it or never heard of it.

    I am one of the wierdos who genuinely love it.  My latest favorite thing to do with it is put crunchy peanut butter on a toaster waffle and top with marmite.

    I have two in-laws with identical "ethnic" credentials, their mother's were both from Mexico, but from different regions.  Each will complain about the in-authentic Mexican food made by the other.

    I'm down to a half jar & can't find any on the store shelves here in Bumf**k Canuckistan.

    Yeah, but apparently Italians are really extra about it. Like, Italians in the next town over say the people in the neighboring town are doing ___________ wrong. LOL, instead of just appreciating the variety.

    The BBQ idiots here are annoying, though. That's true.

    OK. Duly noted, thanks.

    Oh my god.  You should hear what Southerners will debate as far as cuisine.  What's really funny is to get a diverse mix of people - economic, racial, geographic - and hear them debate which is the "authentic" way to do it, while the rest of us stuff our faces.

    that's weird; a British chum used to complain that all she could find stateside was Canadian Marmite. (apparently the CFIA demanded the removal of hazardous vitamins and minerals, ruining the taste.) I can usually find it at Indo-Pak groceries.

    Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana would like a word with you about how you make your pizza

    Sure, Mike.  Much like Americans are really extra about it. Like, Americans in the next town over say the people in the neighboring town are doing potatoes wrong. LOL, instead of just appreciating the variety.  According to the Idaho Potato Comission at least.

    Check the baking section; a lot of grocery stores mistakenly put it there because it's a "yeast product"

    Way cheaper to get it at Food Basics than any specialty spot.
