Expert chef reveals the one massive mistake everyone makes when making a BLT

Food 08/08/2019

Many people assume that the classic B.L.T. is one of the easiest foolproof sandwiches to make. 

But one top chef has expressed his controversial opinion over the sandwich, leaving people divided.

His opinion is that he claims many people are making a massive error when they come to making the humble B.L.T.

The chef took to his Instagram to claim that B.L.T's should be made with “sh**ty hothouse tomatoes” instead of “perfectly ripe summer ones.” 

According to the chef, the reason people should skip summer tomatoes, which happen to be in-season and at their most flavourful, is because B.L.T's apparently taste better when they are made from tomatoes grown out of season in greenhouses. 

“Less juicy, right acidity and textually better in relation to iceberg lettuce and crisp bacon,” Chang explained. 

The chef also included another controversial opinion, adding that he believes avocado has no place on a BLT. 

While Chang’s post has been liked more than 13,000 times, it has also prompted a debate in the comments, where many expressed their disagreement with the chef. 

“Disagree. Nothing like the super fresh seasonal tomatoes,” one person wrote, while someone else commented: “Well. We can’t be right all the time.”

Another said: “Seriously, you are confounding at times. At times, I’m with you. On this topic you are waaaaay off. Hothouse tomatoes are mealy and have no flavour.

“They add nothing to a sandwich other than making it more difficult to eat.”
