(ANSA) - Naples, October 10 - Accusations of "culinary
racism" are being thrown faster than discs of pizza dough by
chefs at some Naples pizzerias who say they were ignored by
famed Italian foodie guide Gambero Rosso.
The latest edition of the guide book has omitted Neapolitan
pizzerias from its list of the country's best eateries, igniting
fury.
Francesco Borrelli, regional commissioner for the Green
Party, suggested Naples was being treated badly because of its
reputation as a rough town.
"The Gambero Rosso results are yet another instance of
violence against our city and our traditions," said Borrelli.
"This is an operation of culinary racism and political
action to destroy Naples and the tourism attracted by its
traditional tomato sauce".
The southern city's famed pizza makers say they have long
struggled to obtain recognition for the work, despite the fact
that pizza is well-known around the world.
They say they tried to woo the editors of Gambero Rosso,
inviting them to come dine on Neapolitan pizza, but were
ignored.
