    Her name is Taryn Varricchio. She’s Italian and she’s pronouncing Spanish words like the whitest girl in California. Both Italian and Spanish languages are from Latin there’s no way she can’t pronounce these dishes properly. POH-ZOH-LAY. Give me a break.

    Seriously? The title is misleading... you didn’t spend all $50 and you didn’t even try other dishes that aren’t common 🙄 you know what? You couldn’t even describe the taste of the food... you simply told ingredient 😂 YOU NEED TO BE REPLACED!
