Is this the person we're talking about? Just making sure it's the right person I'm thinking of. I wouldn't want to hijack the discussion to anything that's off-topic.

'Don't eat that! It's got Marmite on it!'

'Don't care! Purdy lady serves me food - I eat it!'

Italians biatch if anybody makes anything that isn't exactly the way they'd do it. You can safely ignore.

Not even sure WTF Marmite is, but it sounds disgusting.

I'm not sure why, but I'm always surprised that people still eat pasta.  I'm not insulting pasta-eaters, it's just been so long since I've had it I kind of forget that it's really popular, versatile, and tasty.  Maybe I'll make some this weekend.

Marmite is the English equivalent of soy sauce.  A thick paste that tastes of umami and salt.

And like many other things in England, overcooked so that it also tastes burnt and bitter.

I know that Marmite is a love it, hate it or never heard of it.

I am one of the wierdos who genuinely love it.  My latest favorite thing to do with it is put crunchy peanut butter on a toaster waffle and top with marmite.

I have two in-laws with identical "ethnic" credentials, their mother's were both from Mexico, but from different regions.  Each will complain about the in-authentic Mexican food made by the other.

Oh my god.  You should hear what Southerners will debate as far as cuisine.  What's really funny is to get a diverse mix of people - economic, racial, geographic - and hear them debate which is the "authentic" way to do it, while the rest of us stuff our faces.

that's weird; a British chum used to complain that all she could find stateside was Canadian Marmite. (apparently the CFIA demanded the removal of hazardous vitamins and minerals, ruining the taste.) I can usually find it at Indo-Pak groceries.

Check the baking section; a lot of grocery stores mistakenly put it there because it's a "yeast product"

Way cheaper to get it at Food Basics than any specialty spot.

While both exist to promote a product from their region, I don't know that the Idaho Potato Comission has ever tried to say that in order to call your dish "hasbrowns" the potatos have to be from Idaho.

So I figured that it was a fairly typical pasta sauce with Marmite mixed in to add some notes to the flavor, and was ready to a call everyone here a small-minded craven for automatically judging this recipe even though you never ate it, or thinking that a couple teaspoons of Marmite in a pint of sauce will make the sauce taste like Marmite.

Now I see this recipe actually uses Marmite as pasta sauce.

So, carry on.

/would like it, but I have an odd palate for rotted fish
