Watching this now is like reflecting on warm happy family memories and then realising your parents were in the process of getting a divorce and the friendly house cleaner was actually a bonded labour slave, and your weird uncle wasn’t on holiday and was really in prison for white collar crimes. The rapport between the team was nice to see, but I can’t unlearn the family secrets.

It’s so interesting that he’s letting his general knowledge of what gumbo/jambalaya usually consists of overpower what he’s actually tasting. He didn’t get any green pepper, celery, or tomato in any of his taste tests but assumed they must be included because, like Brad said, the “holy trinity” thing and jambalaya is generally in a tomato based sauce. I really want to see him taste the two dishes blindfolded side by side instead of waiting so long between tastings. He’s got such a good palate and he’s so talented.

My favorite thing about cooking is that it's an art. Just like all art, it is open to interpretation and personal opinion/taste. Thankfully, no one is forcing their own way of doing things on everyone else as "the only way". If it tastes good to you, then it is good (to you!). This world doesn't have room for all of the - "OMG I cannot believe you're putting _ _ _ _ _ _ on _ _ _ _ _ _ !" or "That's not REAL _ _ _ _ _ , only REAL _ _ _ _ _ is made in _ _ _ _ _ _ " - judgement and hatred anymore. If someone did, say, make a deep-dish pizza and call it 'New York style', then they would be incorrect in calling it that, but it would still be pizza & someone would still like it. Enjoy making/cooking/eating the foods that YOU like and let's stop worrying about what everyone else is doing, whaddaya say? (●'◡'●)

“Barnyard” and “Tide pool” are really disrespectful ways to describe cuisine you’re unaccustomed to.
Perle Demenia
Perle Demenia 4 сарын өмнө
MusicKnowte that is true. I guess I didn’t see it as a slur as I’ve heard the expression “barnyard flavor” before and it didn’t seem disrespectful. I took tide pool to mean kind of the same thing. I’ve not used those expressions myself and will avoid doing so.
MusicKnowte 4 сарын өмнө
Perle Demenia to be fair, if someone used a slur you wouldn’t say “he is factually correct” you would say he shouldn’t use that word. He shouldn’t have said that. That is very disrespectful

Did know that out of all the BA personalities, Chris Moricco has yet to issue any public statement? And all of this on top of the subtly racist, man baby energy of this video. Mr Super Taster can't cook Black food, won't stand up for his BIPOC colleagues, and doesn't believe in apologizing. Hmm okay.

I found this video upsetting when I first watched it and now with the greater context of BAs racism I’m even more angry. Chris’s whole tone was off to me. There’s a disdain and carelessness to the way they portray this dish. How did Chris (a chef) think gumbo was jambalaya? Jambalaya is not a soup. Leah Chase is legendary especially to the Black community and he was being so crass about her recipe. There’s a reason for every one of the ingredients. Instead of having a Black chef do this recipe they have a white chef who clearly does not understand this cooking dissect it and be grossed out?
Karson 6 сарын өмнө
This isn't even typical gumbo, though. I love gumbo but I wouldn't eat this. He's definitely butchered several of the recipes in this series lol but his super-senses are why he's the one doing it. He should've known the difference between gumbo and jambalaya though 🙄

They could have edited out the part where Chris was like retching as a reaction to the gizzard/offal. That they didn't and this being the first recipe by a black person for this series is very telling of the Bon Appetit position on Black, Creole, Southern and "Soul" cuisine.
