“Ketchup makes bad food better but good food worse”

Adding ketchup to food makes it taste like ketchup. That makes bad food taste better, but it makes good food taste worse.

“Ketchup makes bad food taste good.... but good food taste bad #Hmmm #TheMysteriesOfTheWorld” was posted on Twitter on April 18, 2012. “Ketchup makes bad food better but good food worse” was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on October 24, 2017.


Wikipedia: Ketchup
Ketchup is a table sauce. Traditionally, recipes featured ketchups made from egg whites, mushrooms, oysters, mussels, walnuts, or other foods, but in modern times the unmodified term usually refers to tomato ketchup.

Ketchup is a sweet and tangy sauce, typically made from tomatoes, sweetener, vinegar, and assorted seasonings and spices. Seasonings and spices vary by recipe, but commonly include onions, allspice, coriander, cloves, cumin, garlic, mustard and sometimes celery, cinnamon or ginger.

Remember: Ketchup saves bad food and ruins good food. Put ketchup on a good steak and I will shank you

I understand why a chef would want to ban ketchup. Ketchup doesn’t improve good food. It only ruins good food or makes bad food palatable.

Ketchup makes food taste like mainly ketchup. It’s for you to decide if that’s an improvement or not.
