This is a forum for sharing and getting information out to people. I get that. Today I like it more than other days.
I have not posted in a while.....been out of town, not really sure where to go with things etc. then dumb things happen. Call me a cynic, I don't care, this is just plain ridiculous and people need to know about it. Brooklyn Dem Felix Ortiz wants to ban use of salt in New York restaurants.

Talk about an abuse of civil liberties and which amendment? I am ashamed to call myself a New Yorker if this jerk gets any press. Ban him, shun him, join the groups against him, and just shut this ignoramus up already.
"It's time for us to take a giant step," Ortiz said yesterday. "We need to talk about two ingredients of salt: health care costs and deaths."Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/2010/03/11/2010-03-11_assault_on_salt_an_insult_chefs.html#ixzz0hw8oqG7n
Really.....So it's our fault...the people who are trying to bring healthy, sustainable food to the mainstream. How about the corporate machine that pumps out high fat, high sodium garbage and puts it just a drivethru away or on the shelves for 99 cents a can?
Please don't buy into this nonsense....that's all I really ask. I started writing a blog about vegetarians and the good, the bad, and the ugly, on the matter.......it's all trivial. Most real cooks are getting that now. Chefs like Dan Barber and Sean Brock, I read about. WE CARE more about the respectful health of the dining public than self serving politicians....and to the powers that be, stop pointing fingers already......
We should be mad and let it be known.....
It just makes me sad that things like this even need to be said. I miss Entrains....
