Food thread: ingredients that should never go in particular dishes


#1

I’ll start with one we can all agree on: you should never put cream in a carbonara sauce.

Looking forward to your contributions. Comedy answers will be tolerated.


#2

My wife had chocolate and blue cheese over some steak in Havana. Would not advise.


#3

Chorizo in Paella (@jamieoliver to thread)


#4

isn’t carbonara just eggs and cream


#5

Not sure about chocolate in savoury dishes per se. “Oh it’s got a surprise twist in it!” “What’s that?” “Dark chocolate” “oh”


#6

Fuck off you cunt!


#7

Eggs, white wine, parmesan, a bit of butter, pancetta (though bacon is fine imo) and seasoning. No cream!


#8

sounds dry


#9

Well MY wife had curry on pasta in Valletta. Would not advise.


#10

I imagine a bit of cream in it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. I only imagine it as I don’t cook or eat carbonara as I’m an adult.


#11

Fuck off you cunt!


#12

Chocolate in a chilli

waits for backlash


#13

I do:
1 egg per portion + 1 additional yoke
parmesan
parsley
pancetta (ocassionally my one addition/break from tradition will be to fry a little bit of diced red onion with the pancetta)


#14

Full eggs or egg yolks?

I strongly disagree with putting full eggs in. I only ever put egg yolks.


#15

Yeah it’s a bit Sainsbury’s innit.


#16

Did that actually happen though?


#17

Cheese melts; butter melts; white wine is liquid; egg thickens but doesn’t solidify. Not sure how it’d be dry!


#18

Yes it did. At the Quayside.


#19

I do a mix, find it gets a bit too thick with just yokes, not rich enough with just full eggs, so do like 2 eggs plus a yoke


#20

nae cream is how
