Mario Batali gives holiday recipe in same email as apology

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 20:20:28 UT

NEW YORK (AP) — Celebrity chef Mario Batali has issued an apology to his newsletter subscribers for his sexual misconduct against women, but he confounded some by ending his message with a recipe for a "holiday-inspired breakfast." Batali was immediately blasted on social media for including in the Friday email the "Pizza Dough Cinnamon Rolls" recipe after his apology for making "many mistakes." Several women have made allegations that he touched them inappropriately. Batali admitted his behavior and first apologized in a statement Monday. He has stepped down from his restaurant empire and was kicked off the ABC cooking show, "The Chew." The Food Network also scrapped plans to air new episodes of his hit '90s cooking show, "Molto Mario.



Wisconsin program hopes to spark interest in hunting

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 16:27:59 UT

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin wildlife officials hope the hunting tradition can get new life from the local food movement. The Learn to Hunt for Food program aims to capitalize on the increasing demand for local, sustainable food and hopes to educate people who are interested in hunting as a food source, the Wisconsin State Journal reported. Keith Warnke, a hunting and shooting sports coordinator at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, got the idea for the program in 2012 after his daughter said she would become vegetarian unless they hunted and killed the animals themselves. The Madison classes typically fill up within 24 hours, Warnke said.

Mario Batali steps down after sexual misconduct allegations

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 21:30:13 UT

Celebrity chef Mario Batali stepped away from his restaurant empire and cooking show "The Chew" on Monday as he said that reports of sexual misconduct "match up" to his behavior. Food news website Eater New York published an article Monday that said four women accused the chef of inappropriate touching. One of the women said that Batali groped her chest after wine spilled on her shirt. Another said he grabbed her from behind and held her tightly against his body. Eater said the four women, three of whom worked for Batali, asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation. The sexual misconduct allegations are the latest to come against powerful men in entertainment, politics and other industries.

Kennedy seems conflicted in Supreme Court wedding cake case

Wed, 6 Dec 2017 00:43:04 UT

WASHINGTON (AP) — On a sharply divided Supreme Court, the justice in the middle seemed conflicted Tuesday in the court's high-stakes consideration of a baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple in 2012. The court's fault lines were laid bare in a riveting argument that focused equally on baker Jack Phillips' right to refuse to put his artistic talents to use in support of something in which he disagrees and the Colorado couple's right to be treated like any other two people who wanted a cake to celebrate their marriage. Both views were reflected in the questions and comments of Justice Anthony Kennedy, the author of all the court's major gay-rights decisions and a fierce defender of free speech.

___ Then and now: Why 1986 tax bill was everything 2017's isn't WASHINGTON (AP) — The Tax Reform Act of 1986 was the product of a year and a half of spirited deliberations.

The Latest: Baker and gay couple at court for cake arguments

Tue, 5 Dec 2017 17:53:43 UT

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on Supreme Court argument in the wedding cake case (all times local): 12:41 p.m. A Colorado cake baker and the same-sex couple for whom he declined to make a wedding cake were all at the Supreme Court to witness arguments in the case. Speaking outside of court after the justices heard the case, baker Jack Phillips said the five-year court fight has "been very hard on me and my family." He said, "there have been many tears," he said. Phillips says he has faced death threats and harassment and is "struggling just to make ends meet." David Mullins said he and his now-husband, Charlie Craig, said they were in tears in the parking lot of Phillips' shop after he declined to make them a wedding cake.



Opponents in high court wedding cake case differ over terms

Tue, 5 Dec 2017 16:47:41 UT

A Supreme Court case about a baker's refusal to make a cake for a same-sex couple is also a dispute over terminology. Supporters of Masterpiece Cakeshop baker Jack Phillips see it as a case about religious freedom or religious liberty. Backers of the gay couple who were refused a cake say it's about Phillips seeking a religious exemption from Colorado's anti-discrimination law. It's not unusual for opposing sides of controversial issues to disagree about the words they use to describe them. For example, abortion opponents call themselves "pro-life." Supporters of abortion rights call themselves "pro-choice.



Some see echoes of '68 court case in wedding cake dispute

Sun, 3 Dec 2017 22:23:16 UT

WASHINGTON (AP) — The upcoming Supreme Court argument about a baker who refused to make a cake for a same-sex couple makes some civil rights lawyers think of South Carolina's Piggie Park barbecue. When two African-Americans parked their car at a Piggie Park drive-in in August 1964 in Columbia, South Carolina, the waitress who came out to serve them turned back once she saw they were black and didn't take their order. In the civil rights lawsuit that followed, Piggie Park owner Maurice Bessinger justified the refusal to serve black customers based on his religious belief opposing "any integration of the races whatsoever." Federal judges had little trouble dismissing Bessinger's claim.
