Max Mariola, there sure are women in the kitchen. And he’s the only one who didn’t notice

How boring. How boring it is to always listen to the same stuff, useless, old and boring. How boring it is to listen to three men who, giggling and nudging each other, talk about the impossibility of a woman working in the kitchen. “It’s very hard work,” he says Max Mariola interviewed by The mosquitoradio program on Radio 24. “Can you imagine a mother staying away from her daughter or her newborn son for 12, 14 hours?” continues the chef-influencer, who recently hit the headlines with his haute couture kitchen proposal, which includes carbonara for €30, but says little about the ingredients and much about the show brought to the table with the dish.

Supported by a the always persistently politically incorrect Cruciani (how boring, we used to say), who also began by saying that she was thinking “but who is this idiot who values ​​carbonara for 30 euros?”, Mariola insists that women hardly do this job, and in fact, in her kitchen, preferably everyone is male. Not because he chose them that way, mind you, but because, he repeats, it’s hard work.

All this, not before telling us and making us listen (how boring) in detail the erotic performance of his carbonarathe one that, with the show that is put on at the guests’ table, justifies the notorious price of 30 euros per dish. Cooking is sex, he says. It is an erotic act full of double meanings, whispered in the ears of the guests. Sorry, some diners. hey hey hey And indeed David Parenzo says he wouldn’t go there, to a pig cook who talks dirty things to his wifeand it is useless to point out to him that we suppose his wife, whatever her opinion, is perfectly capable of deciding for herself whether or not she will allow Max Mariola to talk dirty things to her, without him feeling obliged to defend his (apparently not her) honor by preventing his wife from exposing him to the public shame of listening to obscenities from another man.

How boring, we said. And how naive it is to continue to grab with both feet the provocations of The mosquito, which also provide us with useful elements to decide where to go (or not go) the next time we want carbonara. And it is also possible, dear Max Mariola, to choose a kitchen where a woman stands behind the stove, not a man. Or maybe gay since they exist and work too if she claims she doesn’t know them or hang out with them (giggles and lots of male elbowing).

If the sexy carbonara narrated by Max Mariola takes us back to the cinepanettoni atmosphere of the 1980s, discussions about women in the kitchen are no less important. Because whether Mariola likes it or not (we suspect not, but we can’t know for sure), the world has moved on. There are women in the kitchen, they are good, they often make the difference (and not only in culinary terms). They have kids and work anyway, mind you. Go tell someone about it Karime Lopezor to one Anna Ross, how difficult it is for a woman to succeed in working in the kitchen. Which isn’t to say it’s easy, that’s clear. Difficult is difficult, but if we keep repeating it, bumping into men and accepting it as fact, it can only be a self-fulfilling prophecy, with all due respect to how successful they are and how hard we are trying to change the catering world. reducing schedules and separating shifts, for the well-being of the women and men who work there.

Go tell someone Antonia Klugmanor to one Viviana Varese, how hard it is to appear every day at the customers’ table and make the show of the erotic pasta that craves bacon and a hot egg. So hard that it costs even more than 30 euros. And actually yes, at least on this we think we agree with Mariola: it must be really hard as a chef to find yourself at the table whispering dirty things to the pasta.
