  • 'Anti-vegan' Christmas cake ad provokes outcry in Italy

    Panettone is an Italian cake filled with raisins and sultanas, and is a typical Christmas treat. But the seemingly harmless dessert has led to backlash after some vegan activists claimed a famous cake-maker was mocking the plant-based diet. It’s all because of a TV advert created by Motta, a company which has been churning out panettone since 1919 and intended to celebrate Christmas culinary traditions in its festive ad campaign. The 30-second clip shows the preparation of the typical cake, and as eggs are cracked and dough kneaded, the voiceover says:“To make our panettone, we could have used tofu, papaya,...
  • ‘Vegan Wallet’ Costs Too Much Green

    Vegan wallets? I get a lot of e-mail at work — mostly requests for coverage of an event or someone wanting to be mentioned in my Standing O column, or spam (not the canned variety). The other day, I received one that touted quality vegan wallets — yes, quality vegan wallets. I queried this one too. What exactly does that mean? Is the wallet made out of plastic or a similar man-made material? Did the maker of the wallet not eat meat? Or was the material ethically taken from a free-range cow that wanted to give of itself for the...

    Is there a restaurant that you'd love to go to, but you don't like the kind of food it sells? No? Well of course not, because if you don't like the kind of food it sells, you just go somewhere else. You don't go to Chick-fil-A if you don't want to eat chicken, just like you don't eat at a Chinese food place if you want tacos and you don't eat Mexican if you have a hankering for sushi. That isn't stopping one group of brain-dead morons from trying to force In-N-Out Burger to offer "meat free" options on its...

    The Rauzi realm’s dietary and voting decisions make plain that nuts abound in our nation today — and all of America is descending into anaphylactic shock. It’s funny that liberals try to advance the caricature of the stuffed-shirt conservative. It’s projection, actually, because “killjoy” could be synonymous with “progressive.” From demonizing toy guns to banning dodgeball and sweets to stigmatizing innocent jokes as “racist” to, generally, ensconcing everyone in bubble wrap, never was a rainbow born the libs couldn’t turn gray (except, you know, for the rainbow cause they’re obsessed with). A good example of this is a recent Lost...

    A vegan cafe in Tbilisi has appealed for public solidarity after being invaded by alleged ultra-nationalists wielding grilled meat and sausages. More than a dozen men stormed into the Kiwi cafe in the Georgian capital on Sunday evening, the cafe said, shouting and throwing meat at patrons. A brawl erupted but the attackers fled before police arrived.

    A fourth person has died on Mount Everest, and further details about the deaths are slowly emerging. Subhash Paul of India was being assisted overnight Sunday by Sherpa guides during a descent when he died of altitude sickness, the AP reports. Dutch climber Eric Arnold passed away Friday of the same malady, while Australia's Maria Strydom succumbed to it on Saturday. A 25-year-old Sherpa was the first to die this climbing season: Phurba Sherpa fell to his death Thursday while trying to prep a route for climbers just 150 feet from the top, CNN reports.

The 34-year-old's family say the couple's GPS tracker stopped working on Friday. A single transmission from the tracker on Saturday gave them hope but a Google search on Saturday night delivered the devastating news that Dr Strydom had died, her sister Aletta Newman told AAP. ... Conflicting media reports attributing her death to altitude sickness, snow blindness and a stroke only added to the distress of the Strydom family, who have yet to hear...

Matthew and Terces Engelhart, both in their sixties, who opened the first Cafe Gratitude in 2004 and whose celebrity followers have included Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyoncé and Sacha Baron Cohen, countered the firestorm of criticism with...

    Vegan activists threatened a restaurant in the United Kingdom over its Valentine's Day menu A chef in the United Kingdom is backing away from including foie gras on a Valentine's Day menu after receiving death threats from vegan activists. The chef at Kings Arms at Fleggburgh opted out of serving the decadent dish during Valentine's Day dinner this weekend after being subjected to "harassment" by activists who threatened to protest the menu, the Guardian reports. Foie gras is traditionally made by force feeding geese until their liver becomes enlarged.

    Beer Guinness changes recipe to go vegan Guinness is going vegan. Starting in 2016, the Irish beer will be fully vegan friendly for the first time since they started brewing beer 256 years ago, reports The Independent. Guinness, like many other brewers, use isinglass, a by-product of the fishing industry that's used to clarify the beer and make yeast settle faster. While most of the agent is filtered out during the brewing process, there are still traces of fish bladders in the finished product. Vegan customers have long been petitioning the brand to discontinue its use of isinglass. One was...

    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.ā€¯ 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...

    MENLO PARK, Calif., - A California startup analyzing food on a molecular level announced some hard news about one of the most beloved foods in the United States: 2 percent of hot dogs contain human DNA. Clear Food, the consumer guide wing of Menlo Park startup Clear Labs, said it analysed 345 hot dogs and sausages from 75 brands sold at 10 different retailers and discovered 14.4 percent of the products included ingredients that were not listed on the label. The startup said several of the tested brands had "hygienic" issues. "Hygienic issues occur when some sort of non-harmful contaminant...

    A landlord who cares deeply about your health? Well, that’s the story, anyway. Jinesh Varia, who is renting out a three-bedroom townhouse with a fireplace and a Jacuzzi tub in Bothell, WA, a Seattle suburb, is offering a $200 discount on the $2,200 monthly rent to prospective tenants who pledge not to eat meat. Is it a canny attempt to publicize his rental property with a nifty discount? Or a blatant effort to blast the word about his favorite cause, environmental activism via vegetarianism? Well, maybe it’s a bit of both. Varia is a member of Vegetarians of Washington, a...

    A group of vegans thought they would further their cause by storming a Toronto steakhouse, peppering a hostess with questions and shouting at customers.Instead, even those on the left are ridiculing their tactics. Several protesters from a group identified as “Direct Action Everywhere Toronto” by the Huffington Post entered The Keg Mansion steakhouse in Toronto, Canada. Video shows the lead agitator perusing a menu near the entrance of the restaurant.“So, I’m just wondering, I don’t see any dog meat here,” the protester said to the hostess trying to wait on restaurant patrons. The hostess stood stone-faced, either unamused or not...

    A Bellevue butcher is learning first hand that promoting your business through Facebook can make you vulnerable to more than bad reviews. The owner of Golden Steer Choice Meats just wanted to expand his presence on social media like so many other companies do. But the Facebook reviews became so vicious, he realized the problem was more than just a few angry customers. John Dick said when he updated the business' Facebook page a few weeks ago, the store was enjoying 5-star endorsements. This week, the business' rating plummeted. "I'm like 'Wow, what did I do?'" said Dick. "I must...

    As many of you know, so-called “fat pride” activists have launched an all-out attack on anybody who advocates fitness, erects billboards promoting health and fitness, or merely asks why there is an obesity epidemic by labeling any dissenting viewpoints on obesity as “hate speech” and even reporting obesity skeptics to police for “hate crimes.” Now I have learned that there is a possibility that ethical vegans – vegans who convert to veganism not for health reasons, but for animal rights reasons – will take a cue from the fat pride activists and have any dissenting viewpoints on ethical veganism and...
