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.

Fake Olive Oil, It's Everywhere. Most Likely In Your Kitchen


Olive oil tasters describe the positive attributes (of extra virgin olive oil) using the following terms:

    Fruity: Having pleasant spicy fruit flavors characteristic of fresh ripe or green olives. Ripe fruit yields oils that are milder, aromatic, buttery, and floral. Green fruit yields oils that are grassy, herbaceous, bitter, and pungent. Fruitiness also varies by the variety of olive.

Fake Olive Oil, It's Everywhere. Most Likely In Your Kitchen


According to the book Extra Virginity: The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil, illicit manufacturers slap an Italian flag and the name of an imaginary producer on the label and dump this stuff on the US market, where consumers are easy pickings.

But consumers in the US aren’t the only victims. Studies done in Australia and New Zealand found that half of their Mediterranean imports were fake, too. Anywhere olive oil is in demand is a possible target.

How do you fake olive oil? Olive oil can be diluted with poor quality oils or sometimes there is no real olive oil at all. Cheap and unhealthy soy or canola oils are colored with industrial chlorophyll and flavored with artificial flavorings. Yum.
