is this thread going to become like the "cheddar on apple pie" thread, just sprinkled with people asking "what the hell do jaffa cakes taste like anyway?"

Jaffa Cakes are a cake introduced by McVitie and Price in the UK in 1927 and named after Jaffa oranges. The most common form of Jaffa cakes are circular, 2+1/8 inches in diameter and have three layers: a Genoise sponge base, a layer of orange flavoured jam and a coating of chocolate. Each cake is 46 calories.= Per Wikipedia

i saw them on the great british bake-off once, but i was more hoping for a reply from a farker who's actually eaten one?

so chocolate, orange (or raspberry? per aldi shelves) and sharp cheddar for this dude? ok. stoned people eat weirder things on the regular late at night. hell, people eat things like chocolate, cheese, and apricots off of fancy charcuterie trays.

There are quite a few cultures that do a chocolate and cheese thing, and it's not uncommon to add a bit of citrus.

As to taste, they taste exactly what you think chocolate, orange, and a fairly generic sponge mixed together would taste like.

And, he may or may not be stoned, but it's a thing in a lot of places, especially South and Central America. I forget which country, but one of them has a national dish that is basically hot chocolate with cheese melted into it, and insulting it to them is like insulting spaghetti to an Italian.

Spaghetti noodles are Chinese, and tomatoes are from the new world.

Fight me, Italians.

That's less insult and more a bit of history they might not know, or might not want to think about.

I was thinking more snapping spaghetti in half before cooking it, or using cherry tomatoes instead of San Marzano. Or, to stay in the pasta area, adding cream to your carbonara.

For a similar result, just look at how Spain reacted when Jamie from Sorted Food put paella in a burrito. Twice. Or most of Spain's reaction when they made a paella with chorizo and shrimp. (For those who don't know, in most of Spain, paella can be surf, it can be turf, but it can never be surf and turf.)

This is why I hate it when people call food "authentic." Italian pasta and sauce aren't "authentic" if you go back 600 years. The only way to define that term is to pick a specific place, specific people, and a specific moment in time and say, "This, this right here is the authentic way of making it." And that is a really, really bad idea.

I once heard an Italian chef (can't recall who it was offhand) discussing "authentic" Italian, and how it was developed in different regions based on what was abundant in those areas.  His basic premise was that adapting recipes to use what was locally available was more authentic than slavish adherence to specific ingredients.
So if you want to make, say, tiramisu, but all you have available is Jaffa cakes and cheddar cheese, who are we to criticize?

Jaffa cakes taste like yum! They're not sickly sweet like, say, an Oreo. The orange jam component is sweet but has a tartness that provides a nice balance with the sponge and dark chocolate. I think you should give them a try! If you don't like them, I'll send you some exotically flavoured Tim Tams as compo, because apparently everyone loves Tim Tams (I don't, but I don't love Oreo's either) :D

Make sure you get the orange flavour though! I've tried other flavours and they aren't as nice.

The raspberry is yum too, but sweeter & less tarty. + it's not really a 'true' jaffa cake (to me at least) :)

Well, you just pissed off a significant number of people.

Cyber Duck: I once heard an Italian chef (can't recall who it was offhand) discussing "authentic" Italian, and how it was developed in different regions based on what was abundant in those areas.  His basic premise was that adapting recipes to use what was locally available was more authentic than slavish adherence to specific ingredients.


It's actually kind of weird to hear an Italian chef say that. I've seen numerous videos of Italian chefs being absolutely furious at cream or bacon in carbonara, using the wrong type of pasta for whatever dish, putting pineapple on pizza, etc etc.  One of them was asked why he gets pissed at pineapple on pizza but not some of the crazy stuff they do in Asia, and his answer was basically "Americans should know better."

luna1580: you're thinking of colombian hot chocolate with cheese


That's the one. From what I've heard, it's delicious, but it doesn't work with all cheeses. Primarily, you want a salty, melty cheese.
