    The wife of a Virginia police officer is speaking out about the McDonald’s employee who refused to serve him, but she claims she never wanted the young employee to lose his job. Last week, Officer Scott Naff of the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries was denied service by a young McDonald’s drive-thru worker, who took one look at Naff in his uniform and stated, “I ain’t serving no cops.” “My husband, of course, was shocked,” said Cathy Naff during an interview on Friday morning’s edition of “Fox and Friends.” “He said, ‘I’m sorry, what did you say?’ And...

    CHEVIOT, OH (WLWT/CNN) – A restaurant owner in Ohio is facing legal questions after offering a discount to churchgoers. "This was the furthest thing from my mind when we came up with this idea," said Justin Watson, the owner of Starters Cafe in Cheviot, OH. Watson opened the restaurant about seven weeks ago. He said all he was trying to do was stir up some business with his discount offer to churches. Instead, he stirred up a hornet's nest. "Any congregation, any religion, any area, whatever, as long as you brought me a church bulletin, I would give you 10...

    U.S. Senator Roger Wicker (R-Mississippi) has filed a bill that he said would further develop the aquaculture industry in the country. S. 3138, named the “Advancing the Quality and Understanding of American Aquaculture Act,” calls for the creation of the Office of Marine Aquaculture within NOAA Fisheries. That office would oversee regulatory issues within NOAA and push for development opportunities to spur aquaculture’s growth, especially within the country’s exclusive economic zones. “Aquaculture is the fastest-growing sector of the agriculture industry,” Wicker said in a press release. “This bill would give farmers a clear, simplified regulatory path to start new businesses...

    The founder of Papa John's said he made “a mistake” when he agreed to step down as chairman of the company’s board last week amid “mischaracterized” reports about his use of a racial slur earlier this year. In a letter addressed to members of the company's board, pizza chain founder John Schnatter said board members pressured him to resign without "any investigation" and based its decision on “rumor and innuendo.” “The board asked me to step down as chairman without apparently doing any investigation. I agreed, though today I believe it was a mistake to do so,” Schnatter said, according...

    I hope you find this as interesting as I did. I especially like the twin ideas of having mothers help cook the food and also inspecting the food along the supply chain to make sure the young soldiers are getting tasty, nutritious meals. We should do something like that.

    “With respect to John H. Schnatter," the board of directors at Papa John’s says “Papa John” Schnatter will no longer have a work space at the company headquarters in the wake of his latest controversy. On Sunday, Papa John’s International, Inc. issued a press release stating that the company will be terminating a sublease agreement with Schnatter, which had allowed him the use of office space within the building. The decision came following the board’s previous actions toward terminating Schnatter’s “founders agreement,” and removing his likeness from marketing materials after he admitted to using the N-word during a conference call...

    Anthony Bourdain pulled no punches in one of his final interviews as the celebrity chef slammed Bill Clinton for being 'rapey, gropey and disgusting' and spoke of how he imagined Harvey Weinstein dying alone in a bathtub. The globe-trotting food chronicler, who hanged himself in a French hotel in June, gave a lengthy and wide-ranging interview to journalist Maria Bustillos for her recently launched magazine Popula. The interview was conducted in one of Bourdain's favorite Irish pubs in New York back in February and was only published on Sunday. It covered everything from Weinstein's downfall, the Clinton-Trump election and even...

    The Korea Times ^ | Kwak Yeon-soo
    Near the subway station of Dongdaemun History and Culture Park just west of downtown Seoul, there's a small ethnically diverse enclave along the alleys, better known as Central Asia Street, packed with restaurants and shops displaying signs in Russian. It's a home away from home for ethnic minorities from Mongolia, Uzbekistan and other Central Asian countries. The neighborhood is often called Mongolia Town as Mongolians are the dominant population in the neighborhood. But the early settlers were Russians and the neighborhood was once known as Little Moscow. In the wake of the "Wind of Change" that swept Eastern Europe in...

    The vegetables and fruits grown inside a Burlington, New Jersey greenhouse look completely ordinary. But Solomon Fried's crops are different. He goes to extreme lengths to make sure they are free of bugs. "You're always looking for insects, I would imagine? Yes, that's a 24-hour thing. They never sleep, so we have to be alert," Fried said. Fried is obsessed with bugs because his produce is sold in Brooklyn's ultra-orthodox community, and insects are not kosher. Jews who strictly observe religious dietary rules do not even want to eat them accidentally. "The problem is there are many insects that lodge...

    White House senior adviser Stephen Miller threw out $80 worth of sushi after a bartender at the restaurant he ordered from flipped him off as he walked out of the restaurant, according to The Washington Post. The bartender from the restaurant, located near Miller's apartment, reportedly followed Miller out the door and shouted "Stephen!" The bartender then flipped both middle fingers and cursed out Miller, who then threw out the sushi in disgust, Miller later told colleagues. Earlier this year, Miller was shouted at "Better be better!" by a stranger while walking through Dupont Circle in Washington DC, The Post...

    Philippine fast-food giant Jollibee has taken another step forward in its planned re-entry into the Guam market with the announcement of its hiring plan for its new store on island.

The food establishment is looking for managers, supervisors and crew members. According to the information posted by the company, the hiring process for crew members...

    Eater ^ | July 3, 2018 | Steve Holt
    By now, the images of shelves full of perfect greens in hulking warehouses, stacked floor to ceiling in sterile environs and illuminated by high-powered LED lights, have become familiar. Food futurists and industry leaders say these high-tech vertical farming operations are the future of agriculture — able to operate anywhere, virtually invincible against pests, pathogens, and poor weather, and producing local, fresh, high-quality, lower-carbon food year-round. That future seemed one step closer to reality last year when San Francisco-based indoor farming startup Plenty, which grows a variety of salad and leafy greens hydroponically (without soil) and uses artificial lighting in...

    SEOUL, July 4 — The chairman of South Korea’s Asiana Airlines today apologised after many of its planes took off without any in-flight meals this week because the carrier was suddenly forced to switch caterers. Since Sunday, many Asiana flights have been delayed waiting for meals and many others, mostly short-haul flights to Japan and China, have had to leave without any. “I am sorry for causing public concern over Asiana’s in-flight meal crisis,” said Park Sam-koo, chairman of Kumho Asiana Group whose main subsidiaries include Asiana Airlines and Kumho Engineering & Construction.

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | July 1, 2018 | Mae Anderson, The Associated Press
    Taking a political stand — like asking a White House press secretary to leave your restaurant — can be polarizing and risky. So experts say an owner who decides to act should do so with forethought and civility. The Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia, has become internationally famous since ousting Sarah Huckabee Sanders over last weekend. The owner had consulted with employees, who said Ms. Sanders made them feel uncomfortable. It was an on-the-spot decision, and led to condemnation by President Donald Trump, an onslaught of negative Yelp reviews and global media coverage. Under federal law, restaurants and other businesses...

    John Legend is not interested in Sarah Huckabee Sanders’s dining experience. While leaving a Beverly Hills restaurant with his wife Chrissy Teigen on Wednesday night, John Legend was asked by a TMZ reporter if he believed Real Housewives of Atlanta star Claudia Jordan had gone too far when she fat-shamed White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, saying she’s “not missing any meals, she’ll be all right.” “Ask me ‘Should we be reuniting 2,000 kids with their families?’” Legend replied, referring to the thousands of immigrant children torn from their families under the current administration’s family-separation policy. “Yes, we should.”...
