Welcome to Food Fraud TV aka Truth in Menu! I recommend this site for concerned patrons and for chefs.

This site is going places! Stay tuned for some big announcements!

This site is to uncover, expose and educate restaurants and chefs who are deceiving their customers. It happens all the time, trust me.

As a professional chef and restaurateur I hold very high standards. Every restaurant should be held accountable for the information listed on their menu. But not many restaurants ever get exposed for deceiving guests. And what is worse many guests would never know to begin with or ever ask questions. Let me teach you how. With 20 years as a professional chef and real food advocate I have witnessed a lot of deception when it comes to menus. Is it
really wild, farmed, grass-fed, grain-fed, fresh, frozen, Maine Lobster, Diver Scallops, Red Snapper, the list goes on and on? Most times the chef doesn’t even know. And in many cases the chef does know. These restaurants are charging more and serving cheaper food. You deserve what you pay for!

If you know a restaurant that is in question email me. I will call them and investigate.

I am down-right pissed when I see restaurants take advantage of their guests.
