If you didn't know, in the multifaceted universe of chefs there is even one, Matteo Scibilia, who is an advisor to Sandro Bondi, Minister of Cultural Heritage. Today this Scibilia, not caring about all the haunting around the names of Massimo Bottura and the like, has bludgeoned the Knights of Italian Cuisine, an alliance between 11 local super cooks that no one has yet understood to the advantage of what was done and why.
Except everyone recognizes that the true unforgivability of the idea lies in first name, the Knights…? - a badly aged leftover from The Lord of the Rings - which undoubtedly is worst ever.
A name that evoked ominous omens. No sooner said than done. Scibilia writes today in an open letter to the Italia a Tavola website:
What amazes me is the umpteenth attempt by our great chefs to create a sort of starred club of Italian catering, laudable intention, but aren't Le Soste e i Jre (Jeunes Restaurateurs D’Europe) already there? It almost seems that there is a desire to prove that they are the best at heart; it almost seems that they have the desire to do something outside the big restaurant family; it almost seems that they do not have the will to confront and dialogue with others.
Uh? And what does this look like to you, common sense or livid envy for the outbreak? He wanted to establish the Knighthood, only that Bondi more than instituting, cuts. But wait, there's more.
We common restaurateurs and cooks who do not go on stage or on television to be the star, we common restaurateurs who pay in congresses to attend their shows, we common restaurateurs who buy their books to copy their recipes, we common cooks who do not we sign books, foods, drinks, chips, ravioli, cans, we common restaurateurs who struggle to be only cooks and restaurateurs …
Livid envy huh? Now, the grand finale:
In Italy, our category has always been characterized by atavistic isolationism, but something has changed in recent times. Rather than new acronyms, it was not the case that the great ones pulled the ranks of the existing associations, what problem is there to represent, the Buon Ricordo, the Orpi (Order of Italian professional restaurateurs), the Uir (Italian Union of restaurateurs), the various Consortia born for some time, such as that of the Marche or the recent Lombard one, or the spontaneous groups of Emilia Romagna, or even compete for the revival of historical acronyms such as the Fic (Italian Federation of Chefs) or the Apci (Professional Chefs Association Italians).
I know, that in order not to get liquidated with luogocommunismi such as: "here's the usual qualunquista", I shouldn't write this thing but what’s Orpi, Uir, Fic, Apci? And if instead, in a fit of Tremontism, we reset these acronyms all, Knights first?

People of the Fud want to know who makes the best extra virgin olive oil in Italy, and they want to know from you
Peace between those who support extra virgin olive oil with no ifs and buts and those who think that using it for cooking is a useless waste. That 2014 is the year of oil not relegated to a simple means of cooking, but the star ingredient of every recipe. We are unusually good today because this is not where the derby is played between […]
