Food blasphemy!!!! I've noticed it's become trendy to take well loved, traditional recipes and create "updated" versions of them. I've also found that the "updated" version is usually not even close to the tasty original and can actually be quite revolting, if not frightening. I was looking for chicken cacciatore recipes online. This I thought was a no brainer, chicken, a marinara type tomato sauce, mushrooms and olives, served over pasta. Instead I find "In our updated version of the classic Chicken Cacciatore, we have substituted tofu for the chicken, mango chutney for the tomato sauce, chilled and poured over a bed of mung bean sprouts". :yuck: It's like the "cheesy breakfast baklava" recipe I found. That's NOT baklava!!!!! (although I admit as a cheese and phyllo dough recipe it looked quite yummy). And the "chocolate mousse" recipe that contained peach puree and no chocolate. Come on people. There are traditional, classic recipes that should be made in a certain way with certain ingredients. Once you change that, you can no longer call it by that name. Like my friend's frozen "meatless chicken and vegetables" dinner. I think "meatless" might mean there isn't really any chicken in it. Is it legal to call it chicken? It's like non-alcoholic wine. Uhm, maybe that would be GRAPE JUICE??? Except it's packaged in a wine botle and costs 10 times more than grape juice. I guess my rant is brought about by the destruction of some very old, out of print cookbooks I had and I'm trying to find the REAL recipes and all I'm finding are these bastardized imitations. :grumpy: Am I the only one that thinks classic recipes are classic for a reason?
