It's a big culinary rant that hit the social networks this Thursday, August 20, 2020, and for once, it's not about rougail sausage. Moreover, it is not even about Reunionese gastronomy: Cyril Lignac, famous chef, has tried a rather particular Nioise salad recipe. And we can say that the reaction of the Niois was to say the least … startling. (Photo Facebook / Cyril Lignac)
It seems that the people of Reunion are not the only ones to bring (too?) Great importance to respect for traditional recipes. We know these polemics all too well in our country, but it is always funny to observe that, in the end, everyone behaves the same in the face of a murderous cooking recipe.
And, for once, Cyril Lignac's salad Niois has something to please the most chauvinistic of Niois: out of the 17 recommended ingredients, it seems that 11 of them have nothing to do with it. It did not take more for the blood of the latter to make only one turn.
Thank you for withdrawing the designation Salade Nioise, what you are offering has absolutely nothing to do with it. Why not a sauerkraut with spinach instead of cabbage, or cassoulet with pasta instead of beans …

"Thank you for withdrawing the name Salade Nioise, what you are offering has absolutely nothing to do with" criticizes a user. “How about some mayonnaise while you're at it?” Another rebelled. "Take away that Nioise salad, it's a shame" even asserts a Niois, obviously very upset.
Make the salads you want but this is not a silly salad !! A nioise salad is raw seasonal vegetables, not everything else! Respect thank you!

If the reactions seem to smile, it is above all that these remarks, any good Runionnais could have faced them with a recipe for rougail massacre … And think about it, isn't this the case for any population? ?
