Italy: controversy over the cooking of pasta

Giorgio Parisi, Nobel Prize in Physics 2021, offers a trick for cooking pasta while reducing its energy consumption. But for some Italians, it does not pass.

The energy crisis down to the plate. Italy is not spared by the rise in gas and electricity prices and the Italian Giorgio Parisi, Nobel Prize in Physics 2021, suggests a new cooking of pasta.

On his Facebook account, he gives this tip to reduce his bill: turn off the heat under the pan to finish cooking. “I put the gas on minimum, minimum, so that it bubbles very low without using gas. Obviously this way consumes even less and I think the pasta is cooked anyway. The most important thing is to always keep the lid on. It is essential.”

On Twitter, many Internet users made fun of this cooking. Some, a bit ironic, go so far as to advise eating cold pasta and not boiling it at all.
