You see, I started stalking Mr. Whalen after I saw him on a short run television show called Fat Chef. I was so taken by his story when I saw it that I asked him to be my Facebook friend and started up a short lived conversation about the benefits of no-oil Vegan food. I even offered to have him and his wife over to our house for dinner, an invitation which he ignored, but I have since forgiven him.
There’s something about these Chef’s Galas that really rubs me the wrong way. On the one hand, they sure are fun, especially for someone as enthralled by people who are as passionate about food as I am. Plus, they are always for a good cause, of course, but no one seems to care about the food that’s being served. It’s not benefiting the humans that are eating it, and it’s certainly not benefiting the animals that are suffering for it. So why do I even attend? I don’t know, I’m really torn.
The obvious answer is that these events only happen once in a while. I mean, people are not eating like this all the time–at least I hope they’re not! The most ironic of all of these events locally is the one that benefits a large hospital and cancer center, yet the whole event centers around the glorification of disease promoting food. It’s crazy!
