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?

Hmm.. I grew up around a lot of white people. And my sil is white. The differences I have noticed is we tend to use more seasoning in things and more sugar and butter. But that might be a where you are from thing as well as your race. Culture not just race. I mean.. Paula Deen's food is always always GOOD. Lol.

Id never use crisco, never have so I really can't really comment on a difference. I've always used butter, lard or suet.


Quoting MicheleJM:

Do you find a difference?

I use Crisco as a probably slightly lower fat thing.  Eh if you're frying anyway or making a pie crust there are so many calories it probably doesn't matter...but I have always used Crisco


Quoting AjCeCeMom:

I do! :)





Quoting Litlmama87:

Ew. Who uses lard?





Quoting LectioDivina:

Butter vs. Lard?

I think it's an White American vs African American difference.  Italians have yummy food that is seasoned well, so do the French. Polish food can be flavorful. British food seems blander.  What about Tex-Mex?  I don't think it's a white vs black thing I think it is a cultural thing.

I think cooking styles vary from region to region rather than 'race'. For instance, Hubs' mother comes from Ohio. She uses gravy, butter, and spice in her dishes. My family comes from New England. Traditionally, their dishes were boiled and mashed and seasoned with vinegar.

 white people cook healhier. Black people put butter and salt on everything. That's probably why we have high blood pressure and diabetes

 I don't think it is a black vs white person thing.  Just a personal thing.  We had a chilli cook off at work.  There were 10 different ones - everyone who entered was white - and 5 of them made me almost throw up.  They were so gross, to me.  LOL.
