Onions, garlic, and chives, those fragrant members of the allium family, have been banished from the 2024 Met Gala feast. Wintour, ever the arbiter of style, confirmed the news in a recent interview. “Those are three things I’m not particularly fond of,” she admitted while talking to, “and so yes, that’s true.”

While some might find this a quirky decision, it makes perfect sense in the context of the event. The Met Gala is a night of close encounters and whispered conversations. Banning these pungent ingredients ensures that A-listers can mingle freely without fear of offensive breath. It’s a touch of elegance and practicality rolled into one.

This isn’t the first time Wintour has wielded her culinary influence at the Met Gala. Cell phones are also a strict no-no, encouraging face-to-face interaction. The focus is on fashion, conversation, and creating a truly memorable experience, and garlic bread just wouldn’t quite fit the bill.

Of course, the decision has sparked lighthearted debate online. Some chefs find it amusing, while others lament the loss of culinary creativity. But for the dedicated attendees, the news is likely a welcome relief. No more worrying about lingering odours or strategically timed breath mints.

The banished trio might not be missed, but their absence is a testament to Wintour’s meticulous planning. The Met Gala is a celebration of all things exquisite, and that extends to the dining experience. Every detail, from the fashion to the food, is carefully curated to create a truly unique and unforgettable evening.
