Angry food critics over a movie – Green Bin Problems – Mcdonald’s Supercrew – Banned Fish!

Julie & Julia not faring well with food critics:
  • Angry food bloggers hate the movie about a food blogger cooking her way through a cook book? Does that sound right?  In the new upcoming movie Julie & Julia  (starring Meryl Streep & Amy Adams)  Julia Powell cooks and blogs about her escapades cooking every recipe from a Julia Child cook book.  The cranky food critics are on Powell’s case for her lack of expertise in the culinary arts because of Powell’s criticism of  Julia Child’s recipes as being “wrong” while she cooks her way through the movie.    For the full article read the Gawker.

Green Bin Disaster:

  • The Green bin organic recycling program is a mess that Toronto needs to clean up.  City workers are routinely mixing organic wastes with regular garbage at the transfer stations.  City officials are quick to deny these claims saying that these allegations are not true but as for the proof there will be further investigations to audit the actual amount of garbage produced by the City of Toronto.  “The public is separating their food and doing all this work and here we are, tossing it all in the garbage anyway.”  For the full article please visit the Toronto Star.
