    Jamie Oliver is urging U.S. President-elect Donald Trump to take a greater stand for better food. While speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Wednesday, the 41-year-old celebrity chef expressed his concern for the fate of First Lady Michelle Obama’s beloved White House vegetable garden once Trump takes term on Friday. “There’s a symbolic visual,” Oliver said during the discussion. “If you cut down that garden then you’re cutting down hope. And he ain’t going to do that, whether he believes in it or not.” “I think when you know the basics of growing and cooking, I...

    Business is booming for a hibachi restaurant after a woman complained she was “sexually assaulted” by a toy used as part of the chef’s routine. While dining at Wasabi Japanese Steakhouse in Murfreesboro, Tenn., Isabelle Lassiter claims she was sexually assaulted by a toy figurine that squirted water on her. According to the 911 call, Isabelle’s husband, James, said the chef “pulled out this little fricking doll with his pants down and he shot water at my wife out of its [expletive].” When an officer arrived on the scene, however, he noted the toy did not depict any male anatomy....

    Earlier this week, meat lovers everywhere bemoaned the results of a new study released by the World Health Organization that declared processed meats such as sausages, bacon, and ham to be carcinogenic to humans-- lumping the beloved proteins into the same category as cigarettes and asbestos. But the news for carnivores got worse. WHO research also labeled red meats like non-cured pork, beef, and lamb as "probably carcinogenic.” Amid the outcry from meat producers and lovers everywhere was a particularly long Facebook post from carnivore-centric celebrity chef Michael Symon. Symon, best known as a co-star of ABC's "The Chew", who...

    A restaurant chef was detained by police in Liaoning Province after he assaulted a customer over an unsavory comment about his cooking, media reported Friday. Jinzhou police took the feisty cook, surnamed Zhang, into custody for the altercation at the local eatery on September 4. The punched patron, surnamed Zhao, suffered minor injuries, police said. According to reports, Zhang and another chef were arguing over recipes for stir-fried eggplant when Zhao overheard and chimed in. Zhao described Zhang's cooking as "too salty to satisfy customers or the restaurant's owner." The unsolicited comment apparently left a bad taste in Zhang's mouth,...

    For years, the so-called “Clinton Body Count” has been the subject of speculation and investigation, fueling all sorts of elaborate and extensive conspiracy theories. Given the deaths of dozens of people associated with Bill and Hillary Clinton — from James McDougal and Vince Foster to Ed Willey and Jerry Parks — amateur sleuths have worked up a lengthy list of Clinton confidants or critics who have died under mysterious, suspicious, or unexplained circumstances. Now, with what’s just been reported about the fate of the former White House executive chef — a man hired by then-first lady Hillary Clinton in April...

    Excuse the pun, but Helene Darroze really is at the top of her game, and not just because she’s cooking in Burj Khalifa’s 124th-floor restaurant next week. The chef runs Michelin-starred restaurants in Paris, London (at the Connaught hotel, where she took over from Angela Hartnett) and Moscow, is a mum-of-two and is evangelical about the local cuisine of her home region, France’s bountiful south-west. “I use my memories to cook,” she says; those memories might range from growing up in a cooking family (at her family’s Relais & Châteaux hotel in Villeneuve-de-Marsan) or taking the plunge into cooking at...

    White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is resigning after First Lady Michelle Obama fundamentally changed his job duties to focus on healthier food. Yosses is leaving the White House in June to work on a new project focusing on “food literacy” and The New York Times says Michelle is “partly to blame.” The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007 to make his trademark cookie plates and sugar sculptures. Mrs. Obama took over in 2009 and ordered Yosses to make healthier plates in smaller portions. Yosses began replacing butter with fruit puree and sugar with honey...

Ni ran off leaving his friend for dead, but was later arrested nearby. Ni, who was living at a restaurant near St Ives, has...
