Talking Stomp garlic with shoes

Not that I would do it but apparently an employee from the Great China Buffet in NYC thought it was a good idea at the time. Ugh... I don't really want to think what goes on in the kitchen....



NANUET, N.Y. (AP) - Stomping on garlic with your shoes on is apparently not the correct way to prepare food. The Rockland County health department hit the Great China Buffet restaurant with two violations after someone took pictures of an employee stomping on a bowl of garlic with his boots in an alley. The man alerted health inspectors.

"I go back there, and the guy's stepping on garlic," said Dan Barreto, who used to eat at the restaurant. "There he was just jumping up and down on it, smashing it up, having a good time."

The health department does not consider a person's shoe or boot a proper instrument to use in food preparation, senior public health sanitarian John Stoughton said Tuesday.

"It was a novel way to prepare food," he acknowledged.
Great China Buffet owner Jiang Shu said the worker has been fired over the incident.
The health department said it would inspect the restaurant again.

Wasn't that disgusting? Makes me wonder. Gross.

Poor guy didn't know no better. He used to work at North Fork Wineries on Lung Eyeland!

Pretty common in NYC. Health codes are pretty much an afterthought.

That's not really a problem, as long as the boots are MSG free.

Having garlic with shoe cooties in my food isn't very appetizing. Yuck!

WHAT A BUNCH OF SISSIES!

Haven't you ever heard that old saying "whatever doesn't make you stronger, kills you", or something like that?

They stomp grapes for wine, so why not stomp a little garlic!
