Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Is there a difference in the way white and black people cook? If so, explain. And which tastes better to you?

I love food from other cultures..If I had a choice between a burger joint or Hispanic/Asian/Italian/Indian etc... I will always pick the "exotic" food. As long as I know what it is lol.


Quoting A.B.C.brown07:

Lol. It's more a "cultural" thing, no different than how the French and English start each meal with warm tea.



Black people have a cultural of food which includes certain dishes derived from years ago.



I think it's immature to really classify it as a "black/white" thing



Hispanics, Asians, europeans, Canadians, etc. we all have cultural differences in our food and ways o cooking

I don't think it's determined by race as much as where you live and learn to cook.

Not necessarily. Anybody is capable recreating a dish if they have the training and time. It doesn't matter what color their skin is. Are we able to tell the skin color of the cooks in our favorite restaurants?

Everyone cooks differently regardless of skin color.

My best friends ex is black and he always used crisco to cook...but I think it was more of a southern thing than 'black' thing. Everything he cooked was delicious.

Not according to the shit I watch on the food network. Also not according to what I see in the grocery stores or with families I've eaten with over the years.

Oh God no lol

Not all black people use lard. I guess it's just personal preference, but if someone uses lard, I won't eat it, because it's a byproduct of pork.

I'm a black girl that uses butter, & EVOO lol


Quoting LectioDivina:

My DH has some family members that are black and that's what they always use.... That's the only difference I've ever seen except for collard greens

Quoting Litlmama87:

Ew. Who uses lard?



Quoting LectioDivina:

Butter vs. Lard?

Thanks for the replies. I have heard people use those terms before and I was wondering why. As some of you have said, I believe it has to do with culture, not color.

lol the other half of his family is Mexican , so maybe they learned from them...

Quoting atlshine:

I have only seen hispanics use lard. Lots of black people use Crisco but so did white people until this new influx of food purity came around.
