i make carbonara with the fat bucatini tubes because they're made to catch the egg cheese and fat and stiffen

for tomato sauce perciatelli noodles (hollow bucatini) are fun because they slurp up the sauce for you like straws

I really hate buccatini, it stays all dry and sauceless within! I'm American, damn it. I like sauce more than pasta.

Pretty much almost always buy De Cecco. I know there are non-mass-market brands that cost £££ but I've never ventured in that direction, maybe out of fear that I will get hooked and go broke that way.

I was for a while but then I stopped like maybe a year and a half ago and the "Wait aren't you vegan??"s haven't stopped since

who's being snobby now

the late great, Monday, 9 July 2012 19:17 (seven years ago) link

who's snobbing who?
take another look now, baby
who's snobbing who?

I see you, Pineapple Teef (DJP), Monday, 9 July 2012 19:39 (seven years ago) link

Snobby about beer, olive oil to an extent, see no need in using horrible supermarket sea salt as opposed to maldon, when a box of maldon still lasts me a year. Always try to have good soy and fish sauce.

I am snobby about meat and fish but don't have a non-supermarket butcher or fishmonger that is handy for me.

if it's dinner time, i basically have to have perrier. even if i'm eating like top ramen slathered hot sauce, i still want perrier on ice.

also i'm a pickle snob.

I just finished lunch -- two tomato sandwiches -- and thought snobby thoughts as the juice ran down to my wrists.
