Andrew Zimmern says, "Yelp is on my $@%# list"

Food personality Andrew Zimmern speaks out against Yelp
Local food celebrity Andrew Zimmern has come out recently in, we'll just say firm opposition to the crowd-sourced restaurant review site Yelp. In his weekly podcast Go Fork Yourself, Zimmern lashed out against the website, saying, "Yelp is on my shit list!"

Yelp is the online/mobile app where users register and leave both reviews and restaurant ratings. No food writing or rating experience is required. Though users flock to the highly rated website, restaurateurs have often had less than glowing things to say about it because of the often untrained writers and what restaurant owners see as unfair and exaggerated criticisms. Here's why Zimmern is ticked off.

Bourdain will talk travel anecdotes, roasted meats, and the international food community with Andrew Zimmern this spring

This spring, two bigwigs of the food world will come to Minneapolis to meet, greet, and talk about eats. Renowned chef, author, TV host, and one of the most recognizable figures in food, Anthony Bourdain, will take the stage at the State Theater with local hero Andrew Zimmern, writer, media personality, international epicurean, James Beard Award winner, and owner of the recently opened food truck AZ Canteen. 

The two will share stories from their travels and talk about their respective philosophies on food and its role in the international community. The night promises to include a Q&A session with both speakers. Maybe someone can ask Bourdain why he went off on a profane Twitter tirade last week over a Cadillac-sponsored promo for his final No Reservations show.  

It promises to be a fun night for all. The last time Bourdain was at the State Theater, a guy in the audience came onstage and dropped trou to show off a tattoo of Bourdain's face on his ass. Tickets go on sale tomorrow. Here's where you can get yours.

Andrew Zimmern and Sameh Wadi in political Twitter spat: How much do we want to know about our celebrity chefs?

Controversial globe shot: Can you spot what's missing?
As contentious debates go, the dispute between Palestine and Israel is right up there near the top. Many lives have been lost and a peace accord has been elusive. It's not a discussion one would expect to be addressed between two chefs, on either side of the divide, aired over social media, but that is exactly what happened yesterday. 

It came to light that chef Sameh Wadi of Saffron and World Street Kitchen had posted a picture of a globe on his Facebook page showing Palestine but not Israel. His accompanying caption read, "We need more world maps that are correct, such as this one!" Wadi is of Palestinian origin. When one "friend" pointed out, "This 'map' is missing Israel..." Wadi responded, "Exactly the way that this should be." Television personality and fellow chef Andrew Zimmern saw the picture and publicly called out Wadi.
