Mr. Irani grew up eating Indian-Western fusion and he loved it. “My mom became a remarkable cook, blending the best of both worlds,” he said. “She didn’t dumb anything down.”

Last night, as I was trying to wind down, I saw a tweet that read “what a normal and ultimate spaghetti hack!” There was a video attached. In this video—which is a rip-off of an older TikTok video—a white woman in a “Plant Lady” shirt pours cold two cold, Costco-sized jars of Prego onto a granite (or maybe it’s marble) slab, while a different white woman coos in the background.
