Italian Masterchef judge in amatriciana row

Amatriciana is a well-known pasta sauce made with… well, I won’t dare telling it since even Carlo Cracco, a very famous chef and a judge in the Italian edition of Masterchef, bumped against the overzealous Italian orthodoxy about anything regarding food and recipes.

During a TV show, chef Cracco suggested to add garlic to the amatriciana sauce, an unorthodox modification which triggered an official protest from the Mayor of Amatrice, the town claiming to be the motherland of the sauce.

Chef Cracco refused to apologize, explaining that cooking is a matter of “free will”.
