Pasta sales are suffering as the people of the UK look to cut carbs. But is it fair to blame the wheaty treat for bloating Brits?
Not according to Gino D’Acampo. The chef last week said people who blamed pasta for making them fat were “ignorant, stupid people”.
“My answer to these morons is, pasta is not bad for you,” he added with customary charm.
He berated Brits for serving up massive portions, and for adding too much cheese to their recipes. We’re sure the ‘morons’ will be grateful for his counsel.
