No one is banning rare meat, it’s just about the safty of minced meat served rare. Take it up with The Standard, loons. This is why we had to face down the Soviets. In other news, citizens are reminded that islamists hate us for our freedoms. A man who writes the above about council ensuring resturants correctly prepare and cook and minced meat, (which can kill) is calling me a loon. Priceless. Dave Alton – Notwithstanding that I was simply replying in kind, you have to be some kind of commie to have no problem with state food commissars intervening between a chef and your table. It’s strange, I get accused of being a commie or a leftie on this site many times, yet I don’t fit the definition of either. What’s so bad about the state making sure restaurants handle and cook raw minced meat properly? Despite the usual media hysteria in the article you quote, no councils are proposing all meat has to be well-done. I like a rare burger myself, but I don’t want to be ill or die because the meat isn’t prepared properly. I think what posters like myself and FewsOrange try to point out here, is that most of the ranting posts about Muslims, or a police state etc, are just media bullshit. When you research the truth, you find the facts are very different. (Take David V’s recent Morris Dancing post, for instance.) I’ve not got an agenda Pete, I’m not on a particular side. Surely an Inspectors duty concerns the infrastructure of the kitchen and premises, ensuring that there is sufficient and appropriate equipment and facilities to meet modern hygiene standards. I don’t think they have, or should have, any say in how the food is prepared or served. After all, the premises reputation rather depends on such things being of the right quality. I go to a restaurant for the quality of its offerings, not for the quality of the local jobsworths red tape. Who knows the next thing they will be forbiding is the halal preparation of some foods! What’s so bad about the state making sure restaurants handle and cook raw minced meat properly? Plenty. Go look up Steak Tartare and see just how cooked it should be. More bloody publicly funded inspector jobsworths, just what the doctor ordered for our borked economy. They should be cracking down on hot dog stands that are a public health disaster zone and leave the fine dining alone. Ernest Young and Dogisgreat. Did you actually read what I wrote or look at the link provided by FewsOrange. The council are NOT stopping people eating rare meat. They are simply adding new rules to the preparation of burgers and dishes that use raw minced meat. Seeing as you can die or be very ill from E.coli, do you not think this is a good thing? For the third time, they are NOT telling restaurants how long food has to be cooked or how to make it, (or not in the case of steak tartar), but only how it should be safely prepared I have a bent banana, is this wrong? LU: Is it bent physically, artistically or sexually? I have to refer to my ‘elf an’ safty ocifer’… I was sure the Hindus would complain more about burgers than Islamists. As noted above, another bogus story. Fried onions, ees up mother brown…etc Suppose the EU will find a problem with that too. lol Don’t care, off to Barbados to my second home on the 2nd Jan. Riot and bicker all ye like. all the hairy chest You must be really rich. Can I have your autograph? Phantom, I am in the US of A in Feb, signing books. But if I meet you, you will blow my cover! ( ho, ho cover, get it? so funny…) Send David your details and if I am around, I will get you merry with a decent bottle of vino/collapso. Off to bed. Nighty night. Comments are closed.
