Mia madre è molto più brava di me in cucina. Diciamo che io ci provo, ma non sarò mai brava quanto lei… e le sue lasagne lo dimostrano
Mum is much better than me at cooking and her lasagna prove it. Once a week I have to be reminded she’s the best between the two of us 😀 and I’m glad of it. So if you really want to know what the true Emilian lasagna is, this is the place: it is a layered pasta. Layers are of 3 types:
1) pasta (sfoglia – lasagna is a format of pasta all’uovo)
2) béchamel – besciamella
3) ragù and parmesan
You will hear of all kind of variations and renditions of lasagna all over Italy and all over the world. But the only true original lasagna is this one. Don’t let’em fool you. Questa è la lasagna emiliana. Tutto il resto sono varianti e pasticci. Ok you can eat whatever kind of “lasagna” you want, because it’s ok to be creative. But don’t call them “true lasagna” 😀 Thank you mum !
the song is a rhetorical challenge to parents, primarily inspired by Tipper Gore (the wife of Al Gore) who, along with the Parents Music Resource Center, introduced the Parental Advisory warning placed on albums that contain explicit content.
Glenn Danzig explained further: “Al Gore wanted to tell people what they could listen to and what they couldn’t…it was basically coming down to the idea that he wouldn’t let anybody record any music that he didn’t think you should be doing. There was going to be an organization that would tell you what you could and couldn’t record. And certainly if you couldn’t record it, you couldn’t put it out. It was really fascist.”
