In the latest installment of Vogue's "73 Questions" video series, Aziz Ansari makes the cameraman a fruit smoothie with a NutriBullet blender and answers some hard-hitting questions about food.

On general food knowledge

Vogue: What's one thing you don't know that you want to learn?

Aziz Ansari: How to cook everything.

Vogue: Can you say something in six languages?

Aziz Ansari: Tengo hambre. J'ai faim. Onaka ga suita. I'm hungry. Varai pacikkiṟatu. Ho fame.

On barbecue

Vogue: What makes South Carolina barbecue different?

Aziz Ansari: It's a little less racist than Alabama barbecue.

His favorite foods

Vogue: What's the most delicious place in the world?

Aziz Ansari: Tokyo.

Vogue: What's your favorite taco of all time?

Aziz Ansari: I like Ricky's fish tacos and many other tacos—please don't make me choose one.

His biggest food-related pet peeve

Vogue: What's a food trend that you hate?

Aziz Ansari: The word foodie. Stop it. People who like food shouldn't get this weird fetish-y sounding thing. Call the people who don't care what they eat Food Bozos.

On fast food

Vogue: What's the best fast food restaurant?

Aziz Ansari: Chick-Fil-A, which makes the controversy so heartbreaking.

On pasta

Vogue: If you were any type of pasta, what type of pasta would you be?

Aziz Ansari: Lasagna!

Vogue: If you had a food truck, what would the name be?

Aziz Ansari: Aziz's Lasagna.

Ansari's passion for good food (and wine!) is well-documented. Check out the actor-comedian's picks for best natural wines and watch for his appearance on the star-studded red carpet at tomorrow night's Met Gala here in New York.
