>Why guys

Either it wasn't anywhere near as good as you though it was, or your family is trash (no insult intended) I lean towards the latter, because who the fuck puts ketchup on pasta other than trash?

I generally tell anyone I cook for, if they start pissing and moaning that x or y isn't right, they can cook for their fucking selves then.

people like your family generally aren't interested in trying anything new. Probably also the type to spend $20 at McDonalds daily but complain about how vegetables are too expensive

How shut in do you have to be for carbonara to be "something new"? It's not exactly a rare or exotic dish.

If you're full flyover normie-core then anything not smothered in cheese or with tons of sugar in it can be considered exotic.
>>
Your post makes me wonder how to ensure any possible children of mine aren't shitty little nitpicks about food, like I admittedly was.
>>
>>8709415
I've only learned what carbonara was these last few years after lurking /ck/. Before then it was some weird thing my sims ate.

It doesn't have to be rare or exotic. My family was never big on Italian food. If I wanted pasta before but didn't want or have a red sauce/pesto/alfredo then I just used butter, cheese, and garlic. Using eggs wouldn't have ever crossed my mind. I even just only learned what arrabiata was this past Christmas.
>>
>>8709445
i tried so hard man. from the moment my toddler could eat solid food i was giving him stuff with exotic spice arrays and he gobbled it up. he even loved a little heat. anything we made, he ate. Fish. Brussels sprouts, exotic meats. whatever - the kid ate like a top chef judge for like 2 years.

then he stated going to play groups and pre school and all that stuff. the other kids were talking about tendies and hot dogs and telling him how gross his duck confit was.

Now he complains about everything and wants tendies and hot dogs. I tried so hard.
>>
>>8709506
Just.... don't give him the tendies or hotdogs. Or make them do something they don't enjoy to earn them.

Shit, y'all too soft. Beat the tendies out of their system.
>>
>>8709506
Dont be a cuck and cook foods that your child will enjoy, but invest some time now and again to feed it things that will go outside the child's comfort zone. Starting at a young age is good, but remember that a palate grows with the child.

It's also why anybody who hasn't developed a taste for fresh veggies and certain foods by adulthood are failures at life. Their taste buds are stuck at a developmental level.

You're not sending your kid to school with this as lunch are you?
He's complaining because is getting ripped on by all the other kids for having "weird" food

Are there any italian-style pasta dishes that work decently well with rice-noodles?
>>
>>8709849
Hah. My grandma used to send me to school with a container filled with milk, sugar and cream crackers in it. Ain't no one thought that was normal food in that school.
>>
>>8709861
sounds weird, but tastes allright: gaspacho w. leftover rice noodles from making stir fry the day before. also once dumped leftover plain white rice in gaspacho, also allright. doesnt change the flavour, more filling, made with already pre-cooked stuff = perfect for lazy hot days / after work summer dinners

I live in flyoverville in Burgerclappia and most "people" here don't eat carbonara. It's not even on a lot of menus here.
>>
>>8709387
>Having a palate so goddamn awful you can't eat pasta carbonara
What the fuck? Even normies should like egg bacon and cheese. Exchange your family for a new one. Let me guess, they normally just cook noodles and dump store bought tomato sauce on it?

>>8710654
The best part is totino's pizzas literally don't even have cheese on them. It's some imitation mozzarella made out of soybean oil.
>>
>>8709506
Go to the nursery, find the kids who think tendies are good, and then point and laugh at them in front of their friends for being a pathetic little baby who only eats food for fat boring people. Make him cry in front of all his peers, knowing that he is a destined to be a dimwitted pleb who is afraid of the culinary unknown, and that he is a worthless speck of dust beneath the feet of the child who enjoys a good curry.

That's not the case. When I was a kid we never went out to fast food or had microwave stuff. Every single meal was home-cooked awesomeness. (both my parents were good cooks). The only exceptions were 4-5 times a year when we'd go to a nice restaurant for a special occasion, like a birthday. By nice restaurant I mean white tablecloths, snooty waiters, and wine lists.

The first time I ever had fast food was in high school. We were on a trip and stopped by McDonald's. I was excited because I had hear people talk about how awesome it was, so I was all geared up and ready to stuff my face. I ordered....and then dissapointment kicked me in the nuts. The food sucked. I wondered how on earth people could actually eat burgers whose patties were so thin...so dry....so flavorless. Even the stuff my drunkard uncle BBQed on family get-togethers kicked the shit out of the big mac I had just ordered.

If you feed your children well they will develop a taste for the good stuff and will recognize fast food for the crap that it is.

This is Olive Garden Carbonara.

Why does this seem to be such a common experience? I've never had friends or family complain when I cook for them. I'm not a bad cook but I know there have been times when I overcooked something but they still ate it with no bitching.
I'm gonna chalk it up to a lack of home training, growing up my mom always said "This is dinner, eat it or don't but if you don't you're not eating til the morning"
Hated it as a kid but it turned me into a well rounded adult. Culinary-wise at least.
>>
>>8712218
Because unfortunately, everyone can cook, even if they can't.

Thus, everyone is a critique and everyone does it better 'their way'

As a professional chef with 12 years experience, I have learnt to just nod and play along or allow someone to interfere and immediately unfuck what they've just done rather than create drama.

A great example is my grandmother, who insists that you should cut potatoes small so they cook quicker. For the longest time, I would argue against it, because small veggies absorb water more than large veggies. She would insist that she never had a problem in her whole life, despite many, many occasions of potatoes being watery.

Of course, it was the potatoes fault, not the size of the cut.

So now I shrug whenever I'm over there, cut potatoes a reasonable size, allow her to turn down the stove when things boil, then immediately turn then back up when she's gone.

She can throw out my timing somewhat, but I'd sooner deal with a minor setback than have an argument that's based on her home cooking vs my professional experience.

As a wise man once said "It is what it is"

Some people just like to argue to be pretentious though, can't help those fuckers.

Same Anon here. Yeah, I eat anything and learned by being told by my mum and grandmum that if I don't eat it, I'll be having it for breakfast. Girls and friends have never complained when I cooked, but I give it as general warning because I do it as a labor of love.

There was only once, a friend brought some cunt to a "sushi party" I did. Basically, pay $20 so I can buy fresh ingredients, and I make a wide array and custom sushi. Takes a lot of prep. Bitch basically was all condescendingly evaluating how well I roll and quality of ingredients. I stopped mid-roll and just stared across the counter at her until she stopped talking. Fuckin' self-entitled peeps, no respect, can't even have a good time.

My parents eat garbage food most of the time. They always overcook their vegetables to the point they become grey mush, then they cover them with some sugar sauce, they cover everything with a sugar sauce actually, and my mom has repeatedly told me how great the KFC buffet is and how I should try it sometime.

But they still typically appreciate actual good food/cooking and are willing to try new things for the most part. They love getting weird shit off the authentic menus at good chinese restaurants. My mom loves dim sum, and good sushi. They love vietnamese, thai, ethiopian, greek, "middle eastern", and anything "european", but they didn't like indian.
They also always love my cooking.
When I visit them my mom tries to get me to cook everything because I've taught her so many things, and my dad actually seems a bit embarrassed to cook and constantly apologizes for what he's made(usually on the grill/smoker) even when it turns out pretty great. I kinda feel bad one-upping him all the time. My grandma (his mother-in-law) is a rude german woman who has repeatedly bluntly declared that "Anon is a much better cook than you".

What is it with yanks and their incessant need to spout proper nouns and brand names. Are the raw qualifiers of food too complicated to compare, or does it boil down to the cultural value of names?
>>

We are drilled with brand identity before we even learn to walk. You have no idea how many people use a brand name as a generic term, i.e. Coke for soda/pop, iPod for mp3 player, band-aid etc.

Yes, that's the point, you should surround them only with good influences and keep them away from shallow friendships that will turn them into plebs. Once they're mature enough to value good relationships with good people you can turn them loose into the world.

>>8711173

You're missing the point. It's not about denying kids what they demand. It's about having them used to a certain standard of quality so that they reject that crap when they do try it.

I remember asking my mom for various things that I saw advertised during my weekend morning cartoons. Multiple brands of sugary kid cereal, and also ranch salad dressing. Mom bought them for me, I tried them once, and then rejected them for the crap that they were.

Threads like these make me thankful to have been raised with a mother who has excellent taste and is a fantastic cook.

Why would you serve a carbonara as a main course? It's just pasta, eggs, guanciale and parmigiano, not fit for a balanced meal.

Maybe they would have appreciated it more as a small appetizer, like pasta is supposed to be served, with a more fulfilling main course in sight.
