Australian TikTok viewers have labeled a woman’s ‘pasta grazing board’ as ‘a failure of modern civilization’.
In a video shared on the social media platform, the American woman is seen covering a table with aluminum foil and then scooping large amounts of cooked pasta and garlic bread on top for guests to share – seemingly without plates.
“You’ve all heard of nacho table, I’m raising your pastel table,” the caption reads.
Grazing boards are popular Down Under, but usually include cured meats and cheeses that are decoratively arranged on bowls of colorful fruit and candy.

The popularity of plate sharing has also fallen sharply since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, fearing they are breeding grounds for germs and spreading bacteria.
Disgusted Australians said they would “pass” the “terrifying” spread, with a viewer from Queensland saying, “It’s a no from me.”
Another said, “As an Italian, I have to succeed.”
“I feel this was something better as an idea,” said a third.
A fourth said seeing the table “frightens her” as she imagines the germs that would spread from sharing pasta without plates.
“COVID entered the chat,” said a fifth, referring to the increased hygiene risk associated with buffet dining.

A particularly indignant man said, “What’s the matter with this trend? As a civilized people, we steadily fail. ‘
Others wondered why she had bothered to transfer the pasta to the aluminum foil at all, when she could have eaten it straight from the pan.
“How do I even react to something like that?” asked a woman.
But some said the idea was a smart way to save time cleaning up after dinner.
“People should do this if they have a lazy day and don’t want to do the dishes,” said one.
