Angry Chef is dedicated to exposing lies, pretentions and ridiculousness in the world of food.
I have been a chef for 25 years and I am passionate about food. With so many bloggers, celebrity chefs, journalists, food writers, food manufacturers fighting for a niche in an increasingly crowded market, lies are being told every day about the food we eat. And people lying about food makes me angry. It makes me angry because they are abusing something I love. They are also abusing something very, very important.
Right now, food is central to two of the most important issues facing us as a society.
Issue 1 - In the Western world we have never had such a plentiful supply of food and never so much variety of healthy food available. We have never had so much information at our fingertips about how to eat healthily. And yet in almost every developed country, obesity is reaching epidemic proportions. The cost to public health is immense.
Issue 2 – As the world population increases, the sustainability of the food supply will become increasingly important. The contribution of food production to global warming is huge and the difficulty of feeding an ever-increasing population is one of our greatest challenges.
As a chef I can do little about the two problems above. But I can keep an eye on other chefs and the world of food in general and try to make sure that the information reaching people is correct, scientific and based on facts.
