NYC eyes ban on restaurant trans fats - Page 3

post #31 of 36
Seems like it would be quicker and easier for restaurants to simply be forced to put a sign out saying whether or not they use trans fats in their recipes. I try to avoid them when possible. Personally I'd choose a nice stick of butter over a stick of crisco any day. I'm guessing butter is just a lot more money than Acme shortening. If you are paying more than $10 an entree and they aren't using real butter, that is pretty shady.

One recent article I read named this the Crisco Crisis. If it is a Crisis, then the government Must do something to protect us from it. Just ask enough experts and it can be proven that most everything in everyday life involves dealing with a crisis.

Forget about trans fats, tell nanny about acrylamide.

what is a trans fat, anyway?

Yesterday I ate a regional dish called Gnocco e tigelle. Basically small, warm circular puff-pastry things into which ones put any of the following: Parma ham/prosciutto crudo, salame piccante, stracchino cheese, Nutella, parmegiano reggiano, or pure lard mixed with garlic and rosemary. ... I feel a pain shooting up my arm and down my side just thinking about the amount of butter and animal fats I get through.

I can imagine the reaction here if the busy-bodies in authority suggested outlawing this or any other food.

Sounds like a lame rip-off of a joke from Woody Allen's Sleeper.
