@witchfynder_finder @taweret "i grew up in an english family so food was a grim duty to us"

@witchfynder_finder @taweret

When it's white people you can substitute the (literally any ethnicity) part with (literally any part of the country)

@witchfynder_finder @taweret

I don't know, that sentence is very likely to include "Italian" or "French".

I mean, sure, nobody read recipes from NORTHERN Europe, but it's a big continent.

@apLundell @witchfynder_finder oh i watch a lot of this shit. Trust me it's italian, french, greek, cajun, chinese,korean, Japanese, german, swedish, Mexican, spanish, Portuguese, literally any background
They all talk about how food is very important in their culture

@taweret If I ever write a cookbook it'll start : "I grew up in a Scandinavian family, so other culture's foods were very important to us, because we sure as hell weren't going to eat Scandinavian food."

"...Anyway here's how to make some tacos or something."

@apLundell @taweret If Regular Ordinary Swedish Meal Time taught me anything about Scandinavian food, it's that none of it makes sense

@apLundell @taweret @hummingrain I grew up in a German/Swedish family and my most treasured family recipe is... spaghetti sauce. It was absolutely conveyed with a sense of irony. The other is a recipe for rolls gleaned from a neighbor. Third up? Enchiladas recipe my grandma got from an Old El Paso can and a Mexican girlfriend dubbed “gringo enchiladas” and stole for feeding her family.

@taweret I grew up in an electronic family, so a steady source of electrons was very important to us.

@SkyFreak @taweret

I grew up in a society so uh... something about boomers. 😵

@taweret I’ve yet to see “I grew up in the 50s in a very white suburban home so I’d rather not discuss the trauma that was dinner”

@taweret Yeah... like privileged me can talk about not having a particular ethnicity (of course, we do, it's just "unmarked" in the system we're wanting to change). I'd love to celebrate some of my nostalgic favorites, but I would have to do so v e r y c a r e f u l l y since they are wildly appropriative, e.g. chili con carne, Aloha chicken, teriyaki steak...

@taweret "I grew up in a Finnish family so food was not very important to us but size of the pizza was"
