Why the rare burger may
soon become endangered

Telegraph [UK], by Ben Leach

Now council officials are cracking down on the freedom to choose how your burger is done, warning restaurants not to offer them rare or even medium-rare. A number of celebrity chefs are affected by the move, including Gordon Ramsay, whose Maze Grill restaurant sells a burger for £12, Angela Hartnett, whose York and Albany’s bar menu includes burgers, and the Soho House chain, run by Nick Jones, the husband of broadcaster Kirsty Young. All face being asked at their next routine inspection how they offer their burgers after the decision by Westminster city council,

Comments:
Burgers should be medium rare and stuffed with Roquefort cheese.

This is the UK. The Westminster city council.

We are still able to buy medium rare burgers at restaurants we trust. And the best are cooked perfectly here at home. Tonight, for example.

We just won´t eat out as the burger rare is one of the few things affordable on a restaurant menu these days. We will make our burgers at home like we do the rest of our diet. Alas! Another menu item will bite the dust.

This is the UK here heaven knows what they are offering in their burgers.

I remember regularly orderin Steak Tartare at Scandia in Beverly Hills and watching the captain prepare it tableside. The last time he even shaped it in a heart.

And then there were Ramos fizzes with unpasteurized egg whites.

And the carpaccio mentioned above. In Los Angeles the best was at Harry´s Bar in Century City.

Wouldn´t have missed it for the world - and suffered no ill effects.

Just tell the cow there´s an oven in the kitchen and I´m good. I have no anemia and so far, no E-coli but then, I lived a pretty dangerous childhood: ate from street vendors in Korea, licked the cake beaters, and regularly stepped on a crack (but I didn´t break my mother´s back.)

We rode in cars with no seat belts, roller skated on sidewalks and rode bikes with no helmets, once stuck a fork into a light socket and I´m still kicking. (I even once made a face and it didn´t stay that way!)

Government. Sheesh!

They allow citizens to order 20 Oz. soft drinks, and they´re worried about how burgers are cooked?

Help yourself to a nice plate of blood sausage or a steaming pile of haggis there, mate.

If people are so worried about it and if they want a rare restaurant burger, then why don´t they just make sure the meat is ground on the premises, right before it is cooked and be done with it?

Quite frankly, I would trust ground beef from my own grocer or my own small meat packer (my folks raise cattle and on occasion, we get burger from a small, local processor from one of their critters) than I would a large supermarket chain.

Quit trusting large slaughterhouses and processors so much and go more localized.

Their frickin´ country is being over run by psychotic muslims and their worried about someone´s hamburger?

Other than fish and chips and warm beer, most British food is revolting

As prior posters mentioned, if the restaurant does not serve what the customer wants and likes they will go else where.

As a kid I loved Steak Tartare and it was made with raw meat and raw eggs. Never got sick. My parents that I was strange.

All the meat in the markets around here come pre packaged. When you don´t know how clean the places are that process the meat, I would not eat a rare hamburg even at home. Have you ever had salmonella poisoning? I know a woman who nearly died from it and was left handicapped. Can´t even walk and has to live in a wheelchair. Not worth it.

DAMASCUS, Syria — Syrian government forces backed by Lebanese Hezbollah militants forged ahead with their assault on a key rebel district in the central city of Homs Sunday, activists said, as President Bashar Assad’s forces try to crush resistance in the few remaining opposition-held neighborhoods in the city known as the ‘‘capital of the revolution.’’ The push on Homs is part of a broader government offensive on rebel-held areas that has seen regime troops retake some of the territory they have lost to opposition fighters in Syria’s more than 2-year-old conflict.

Egyptian military officials said Saturday that the army has prohibited ?fishing boats from operating off the coast of the Sinai peninsula near the Gaza Strip until further notice.

Cairo - Egypt´s high command said on Wednesday the army was ready to die to defend Egypt´s people against terrorists and fools, in a response to Islamist President Mohamed Mursi that was headlined "The Final Hours". The post on the official Facebook page of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), headed by armed forces chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, said: "We swear to God that we will sacrifice even our blood for Egypt and its people, to defend them against any terrorist, radical or fool."

(NICOSIA) - The president of Cyprus assured his people a bailout deal he struck with the European Union was in their best interests, but banks will remain closed until Thursday - and even then subject to capital controls to prevent a run on deposits. Returned from fraught negotiations in Brussels, President Nicos Anastasiades said late on Monday the 10-billion euro ($13 billion) rescue plan agreed there in the early hours of the morning was "painful" but essential to avoid economic meltdown. He agreed to close down the second-largest bank, Cyprus Popular, and inflict heavy losses on big

The United Nations will launch an investigation into Syrian claims that rebels used chemical weapons against its troops, even as U.S. officials told CNN Thursday that initial intelligence reports suggest no such weapons were used. The announcement follows days of claims by the Syrian government and rebel that the each used chemical weapons against the other side, allegations that have raised concern the ongoing civil war had entered a new, more deadly phase. U.S. President Barack Obama and other American officials have said in recent days there was no evidence to substantiate the reports that

Stocks turned lower in choppy trading Tuesday, with the euro tumbling to its lowest level since November, amid worries that Cyprus will reject its bailout plan. The Dow Jones Industrial Average turned lower, dragged by Caterpillar. If the blue-chip index closes lower, it will log its first three-day losing streak this year. The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq also tilted lower. The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX), widely considered the best gauge of fear in the market, jumped near 15. Among key S&P sectors, consumer staples held modest gains, while energy slumped.

Cyprus´ embattled president was on Sunday in talks with Brussels and political rivals to ease the terms of a planned levy on smaller deposit holders as he tried to scrape together a parliamentary majority for a €10 billion bailout for the debt-laden island. President Nicos Anastasiades is still intending to raise €5.8 billion from Cypriot bank accounts to help fund the bailout, an unprecedented move by the eurozone that could yet spark wider concern about the safety of bank deposits in the bloc. Cypriot authorities were weighing an additional bank holiday on Tuesday pending emergency parliamentary ratification of the deal which would

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The
