When I see an article like this, I immediately do two things. First, I check the date to see if it's April Fools Day. Then, I check and make sure the article isn't from The Onion. Sadly, the proposed ban of salt use by chefs in NYC restaurants is neither an April Fools Joke nor an Onion satire.
"Some New York City chefs and restaurant owners are taking aim at a bill introduced in the New York Legislature that, if passed, would ban the use of salt in restaurant cooking.
"No owner or operator of a restaurant in this state shall use salt in any form in the preparation of any food for consumption by customers of such restaurant, including food prepared to be consumed on the premises of such restaurant or off of such premises," the bill, A. 10129 , states in part."
I'm all in favor of healthier eating habits, but this is absurd.
