Bbc egg fried rice recipe harshly criticised?
Everyone's saying that the BBC recipe for Egg Fried Rice was gross and wrong and all these other negative adjectives, but I don't understand what was wrong.
Like yeah, the British way of cooking rice isn't the same as the Chinese way, or any other Asian country for that matter. Shock horror, who'd have thought of that?!
The female chef only did 2 things wrong. Flavoured it wrong (barely at all) and served with a metal spoon instead of a wooden one. Everything was measured. The rice was portioned correctly for a single person, the starch was drained correctly (with a sieve), it was all done in a well-cleaned kitchen so no bugs were able to get into the food and contaminate it, and the end product wasn't brittle, it was perfectly light and fluffy. There could be an argument that she didn't save a little of the rice water to stop the rice from sticking together but that's optional.
I know plenty of Asian people are freaking out, but Britain isn't even on the same continent as those people are from. Heaven for fend that us Brits might use a DIFFERENT technique to Chinese people!
At the end of the day all that matters is what the end product tastes like, and there was nothing wrong with the end product, so the backlash that chef recieved was very harsh in my humble opinion.
