每日英語跟讀 Ep.909: About UK - BBC host responds to controversial rice-making video
馬來西亞網紅Uncle Roger週六在推特PO出與BBC美食頻道主持人赫莎（Hersha Patel）見面，談論關於去年BBC Food錄製如何做「蛋炒飯」的爭議影片。
Malaysian influencer “Uncle Roger” said on Saturday that he met with BBC Food host Hersha Patel to talk about her controversial video on how to make “egg fried rice” that was released by BBC Food last year.
Uncle Roger’s YouTube video about the proper way to make egg fried rice has gone viral since its release on July 8.
Why? Patel used an English teacup to measure the rice; she drained rice with a strainer; and, used a cooktop to fry the rice. Her cooking method provoked a backlash from people across Asia.
In response to the video, many commented, “ladies and gentlemen, this is NOT how to cook rice,” while others said that every Asian knows that you should use cold, leftover cooked rice to make fried rice.”One said, “BBC woman: “This is an episode of how we can trigger Asians.”
隨後，Uncle Roger週六轉推赫莎貼文，附上兩人談話影片，文內寫道，「最新進展：Ungle Roger和製作蛋炒飯的女士@hershapatel1合作。」
Then on Saturday, Uncle Roger retweeted a post from Patel with a video of the two talking, which read, “Big development: Uncle Roger is now making a collab with egg fried rice lady @hershapatel1.”
Patel said in her tweet: “To all my new friends/haters @MrNigelNg and I have just had a lovely afternoon discussing my ‘crimes’ against rice… watch this space.. collab coming soon, give me a follow! #riceislife #uncleroger”.
“I just had dinner with this lady. Don’t post anything mean on Instagram, otherwise, Uncle Roger will come for you,” Uncle Roger said in the video.
“I’ve been trolled. I was doing a job for BBC presenting the recipe, I know how to cook rice,” Patel explained.
Uncle Roger ended by announcing the next video in which Patel will demonstrate the right way to make fried rice.
