"white cooking" vs " black cooking"

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?

There is more to it then black and white..... Someone who is black and raised in the south is not going to cook the same as someone from Africa. Or Jamaica. And white.... German? English? Polish? Some might consider Italians white. Being white or black has nothing to do with your cooking abilities.

It has to do with culture. Like cooking techniques that originated in China or any other country. But it isnt "black verses white" because
1. White people come from all over so there is French and German (and many others) cooking and they were mostly white.
2. Africa is a big continent and from the Sahara to SA cooking differs

Actually, lard is very common in spanish food, particularly mexican.

And, im white and dont make anything with a soup. We areborn and raised louisianians, so our food is far from bland. It is some of the best food in the world.

white people put cream of soup on everything ickkkk! And their food is bland ( I have some white family)  I like black and spanish food. More flavor...and not lard like someone said.

Butter vs. Lard?

Maybe from down South, which wouldnt be a black thing but a Southern thing. Ive been around black people my whole life. My SO of 7 years is black and I have NEVER once seen or heard of any of the black people I know using lard to cook.

Ive never heard of a southerner not using lard (crisco) to fry chicken. Ever,

Shoot, I'm white, and grew up in the Midwest. My parents cooked with lard.

When I'm visiting Uranus, all the food is crappy and nothing tastes good.  Tell me earthling why you are so ignorant and divide your cooking by the way people look?  You need to come to Uranus, because it sounds like that's where you pulled this post out of.....

Some can cook good and some just cant even cook a frozen ready to go meal.   And it will be depend on what your family cooked as you grew up.   I like all kinds of food cooked good.   Race or country dont much matter to me.
