Don't touch the Niçoise salad! The big comeback of Cyril Lignac's show, "Tous en cuisine", scheduled for Monday on M 6, has made many people swallow badly in recent days near the Baie des Anges. For the premiere of this daily program which had been a great success during confinement, the famous chef had planned to concoct live this great classic of the plates. Until then, no problem. But the list of seventeen ingredients, posted on the internet so viewers could shop beforehand and cook behind their screens at the same time as the host, made the temple keepers leap to the original recipe.
Scandal in the pots! Many shocked internet users got carried away on social networks to denounce in particular the addition of green beans, potatoes and a parmesan crumble. This revisited salad therefore no longer has anything Niçoise according to them, some have not hesitated to speak outright of "culinary terrorism". “Don't defile our culture,” another wrote on Twitter.
A new list of ingredients proposed
Critics have finally been heard. The M 6 channel announced to us on Friday that it was now offering a new list of ingredients to viewers, more in line with historical standards. Without potatoes, beans … Enough to bring down the cooking temperature of spirits heated on the web. "Thank you for taking our requests into consideration" reacted, in the process, one of the Internet users, visibly relieved.
Before Cyril Lignac, other famous chefs had already suffered the scrupulous anger of lovers of Nissarde gastronomy registered, since the end of 2019, in the inventory of intangible cultural heritage in France: Thierry Marx for a pan-bagnat with chicken and honey served briefly in her snack at the airport and Hélène Darroze who had imagined a pissaladière recipe with, among other things, arugula and cherry tomatoes. A sacrilege seen from Nice.
