By Caroline Weinstein | Prague Daily Monitor | 5 August 2019 This article was first written for the international reporting class taught by Dinah A. Spritzer for NYU in Prague. “They tried to argue with us that a spread made from cream cheese was plant-based,” said Tycova, Prague native and current Charles University student. “When we said no, the waitress took my plate and pushed me away when doing that.” The waitstaff then continued to lie about the ingredients in the dishes served to trick Tycova into eating them. After an awkward meal filled with stares, jokes at their expense, and multiple shouting matches between Tycova’s mother and the waitress, Tycova and Ocelik were served food they could finally eat. “But it didn’t really take away all that embarrassment beforehand.” Although Prague is known for its fried cheese, pork, and beef, it has recently been named one of the world’s top-five most vegan-friendly cities, with … [Read more...] about Generational tensions grow due to vegan trend in Prague

A brand new food truck called Tacoson has opened in Reykjavík. The eatery, which was started by three friends, will be serving simple tacos. All come with different experiences in the culinary field, but agreed that Iceland was lacking an actual taco truck, so it’s a dream come true for not only them, but all of us.Baldvin Oddsson, one of the owners and a former Broadway musician, has lived abroad for the past 8 years—the majority of it in New York City—fell in love with the vivid range of food trucks in New York and wished to bring that feeling back home to Iceland.“People have made attempts to do this with mixed results. But [Baldvin] wanted to bring his own ideas to the food truck market here and contacted me if I was interested.” Adam Karl Helgason, another one of the owners, told Vísir.Adam, who has 7 years of experience in the culinary world, didn’t hesitate to jump on the offer.

Suddenly, everybody’s got beef with hamburgers. At this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, DC (think the Conservative Party conference, with less tweed and more Republican Party members), an unlikely political rallying cry was born. ‘They want to take away your hamburgers!’ cried Sebastian Gorka, a strategist formerly attached to the Donald Trump administration accused of having ties to far-right groups in Europe. ‘This is what Stalin dreamed about.’ The ‘they’, naturally, were ‘socialists’ — more specifically, a Democratic Party caucus advocating a radical ‘Green New Deal’ to mitigate the impact of climate change on the planet. So yes, because we live in strange times, Big Macs and their ilk are now a political hot potato. In the UK too, the agenda is flipping faster than a Five Guys production line. Next week burger mainstay Patty & Bun will launch a range of delicious … [Read more...] about How the humble hamburger became a symbol of liberty under threat
In the UK, sandwich shop chain Pret A Manger is close to buying smaller rival Eat in order to transform its 95 outlets into a dedicated brand catering to vegetarian and vegan consumers. "I don't know if we are there yet, but we will definitely be there soon," Dairine McCafferty, director of Cornucopia, in Dublin city centre, said. Cornucopia's vegetarian restaurant, on Dublin's Wicklow Street, is a second generation business established in 1986. But since 2008 it has more than doubled in size from 48 seats to 120, boosted by growing consumer demand. Vegetarianism's move to the mainstream will also bring more competition to a once niche segment, Ms McCafferty thinks. "We are a family business, [so] from a business point of view chains aren't good for us as they have the facility to under-price you, but from an ethical side it's great," Ms McCafferty told the Irish Independent. SuperValu has rolled out dedicated vegetarian/vegan zones across all of its stores. On a smaller scale, The … [Read more...] about Vegetarian chain to be served up soon as food industry adapts
