Aussies prefer 'Simple Foods'
Jan 10th, 2019 at 5:29pm
 
A survey, conducted by BZKOK, has found that the vast majority of Australians, prefer 'simpler foods'. The idea of a 'complicated' meal, is off-putting and time consuming. So most Australians just 'cook' simpler meals for people for starters. Master Chefs of grand food designs might be popular on Television - but in reality, the majority of Australians don't even bother with such styles and tastes. TV is only Australian in its own mind.

The more straight-forward and simpler the meal, the more popular.
As one extraordinary Cook commented
"This is the 'national' style of Australian cuisine/food. It is the style of poverty, for it is from a people, who are so busy working their lives away, that they have 'no time' for such time-consuming complicated, delicate meals of extravagance and their taste itself is by choice because the nature of this study was to give such 'poor' Australians these Upper Cuisine Styles - for 'free'. They still preferred the Simpler Foods.
Which bring's in the fact that its a food that is enjoyed by not just 'poor' Australians. Middle-class and wealthy class also prefer the simpler style and that's where the majority of 'Income on Food' is spent. So really, how 'poor' are those/these innovators of that 'simple style meals' these days?  Huh Anything relating to this 'Australian Style' is where the money is being made in the Food Industry."


But another Chef considered the best in the Country by the majority of Chefs/Cooks/etc, said:
"Australians prefer the 'Simpler Style' not because they are poor, but because they are 'Lazy' and that's why the vast majority of these 'Australian meals' are pre-packaged and made to be just heated up, etc."


One Resturant Owner who serves the 'Simpler Style' and is racking it in mentioned:
"It's up to me as a 'paid' Chef/Cook/etc to provide the  Australian people with what they want, not what the TV wants. I am rewarded for my efforts by riding on the Australian Gravy Train. They are not 'lazy' - they are busy doing a lot in life and doing the things that I can not, for sometimes - due to not having the 'Time'.
They are riding their Gravy Trains too."

The admirable thing about Jamie Oliver is he sought to counter this. He wanted to get people to eat simple - but fresh - food. Cheap to buy, easy to make, and he got excellent ratings.

Problem solved, right?

Alas, his audience watched, but didn't listen.

And that's the power of processed fast food.

Jamie is the only decent TV chef out there.

I get lots of great ideas from him.

And what's interesting is that all his projects failed. School dinners, his Housing Commission show, the lot.

Brits, Yanks and Australians - for all their interest - never really changed their ways.

To me, this says a lot about food as an industry, as an economy. No matter how big Jamie Oliver became, he couldn't change it.

Yes, and you can see the frustration on his face (and hear it in his voice).

He does everything right, but fat Steve & Janeen won't listen.

They just want their chicken nuggets and cola.

Can we blame Islam?

That's the illusion that people incorrectly have, that being 'simple' means being 'processed' - being 'simple' is being 'fresh' and 'growing your own'.

I catch and grow a lot of the food I eat. The fish is fresher than anything you can buy, and better quality species than nearly everything in the supermarket. And a lot of the fruit I grow cannot be bought and tastes a lot better than what is available in the shops. I eat a lot of it straight off the vine or tree. Whether this is simple or complicated is all a matter of perspective, as it does take 'work,' but for me it is recreation. Probably a similar concept to an italian spending time making an extravagant desert from highly processed ingredients. They would only do it if they enjoy cooking.

Most Australians are too lazy or too busy to grow their own food.

Perfect - saved by Islam.

And yes, Jamie Oliver himself acknowledges his frustration. He certainly tried harder than anyone else to market fresh food, that's for sure. Didn't he do an ad for Woolworths?

But as Aquascoot always says, Fat Steve and Janeen need to be forced to do what's right for them. The way to do this is to install a strong, confident leader who eats McDonalds, drinks Diet Coke, and spends the majority of his day watching TV.

This leader can then pump them full of masterful lies on Twitter. He can do it in his pyjamas and dressing gown. In fact, he should lead from his bed. If he needs dialysis, oxygen or a catheter, he just has to ask. He can tell everybody to innovate, work hard and make everything great.

Nestle, Proctor & Gamble and Nabisco can then neutralise the betas of this world, and that includes apologist leftards like Jamie Oliver. Better still, they can pay him off.

We will make Amerika great again, no?

Fat Steve and Janeen are the way they are because they have no-one to 'threaten' them... their lives.
They have been living in perfect idyllic lazy bliss - for doing nothing on an island resort is no different than doing nothing, at Fat Steve & Janeen's house.
To live an unthreatened life in this age of extinctions and threatened species of 'people', is a miracle to behold!

But is it lazy? Most people I know are running around doing crap. They say they don't have any time.

How do you do it?

Anyone seen the ad for that 'cooking show' (out of many  Roll Eyes) - where the 'Arab' (could be moslem?) actually 'lies' (cheats) and then admits to it as a confession - but its something 'sinister' because the confession is aimed directly at the French Chef.

I most certainly have not, JaSin. But why would Arabs (could be a Moslem) be on TV (cheats) if they weren't doing anything wrong?

Tell me that.
