In a statement that “the conversation about sustainable cooking clearly needs to be louder,” digital food magazine Epicurious announced it will no longer publish recipes featuring beef in what it says is an effort to help home cooks become more environmentally friendly.
A couple of years ago Associated Press even weighed in on the anti-environmental effects of cow farts, which they concluded were not as problematic as bovine belches.

Now with Barack Obama out of sight, though actively involved in directing the Biden-Harris administration, stay alert to see how the Wagyu beef eater will attempt to control not only every aspect of the U.S. government, but how and what meat Americans are able to purchase and prepare for their families and friends.

Enjoy your veggie burgers, eggplant and Brussels Sprouts. No cheating. “Big Brother* is watching.
*The term comes from George Orwell’s eerily prophetic novel, “1984,” and refers to the government’s surveillance of people with listening devices and cameras, in a totalitarian society, where Big Brother is the head of the regime. Everyone in this society is under surveillance by the authorities, which continually reminds the citizens with the endless catchphrase “Big Brother is watching You.” Orwell wrote his book in 1949.
