Toronto Public Health inspects Antler restaurant after complaint about chef butchering deer leg in front of vegans

  Toronto Public Health inspects Antler restaurant after complaint about chef butchering deer leg in front of vegans Toronto Public Health inspects Antler restaurant after complaint about chef butchering deer leg in front of vegansThe chef’s gesture – a riposte to the protests outside that have persisted for months – became an internet sensation last week, with diners vowing en masse to book tables as a show of support. After news of the deer leg incident broke on Tuesday, the public health agency received a complaint about “potential improper food handling” at Antler.

Giada De Laurentiis has built herself a little empire based on home cooking and her wholesome appearance. The same goes for Bobby Flay , De Laurentiis ' kitchen contemporary and frequent collaborator. She literally refers to the loss as her "one regret" in life.

In the two and a half years since Food Network star Giada De Laurentiis started dating producer Shane Farley, she's stayed pretty mum about their relationship. The couple ironically met through Bobby Flay , who De Laurentiis was rumored to be dating after her divorce.

Giada De Laurentiis knows how to hold a grudge.

After the star teamed up with Bobby Flay for an episode of "Iron Chef" in 2006, she didn't speak to him for nearly a decade.

In a new interview, De Laurentiis revealed that she felt Flat acted like a
"jerk" when they competed together against Rachael Ray and Mario Batali.

"We lost and he thought it was funny," De Laurentiis told "Beyond The Plate," according to People. "He didn’t think it was any big deal that we lost. I did not talk to him for eight months‚ eight months! I did not. Nothing. Silence."

Celebrated Food Network chef and cookbook author Giada De Laurentiis may have just opened her first namesake restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip, but here in the Hamptons, she’s leaving… Doing Iron Chef with Bobby Flay against Mario Batali and Rachael Ray.

The 47-year-old said she found it frustrating that Flay didn't seem to take the competition as seriously as she did.

"I thought, you know, I took this very seriously. It was a very big show, especially at that time, and I’ve cooked, I’ve gone to culinary school, I worked on my own dish all by myself and I felt like he sort of half-a--ed it," she recalled. "It was just TV [to him]. I took it very seriously. I think Rachael took it very seriously, and I was really disappointed."

The Italian-born chef said she began to question her friendship with Flay when he didn't apologize after their loss.

"He didn’t say, ‘Hey I’m sorry that we lost,’ or ‘Hey, you know we’ll do it again,'" she said. "Nothing. He’s just like walked away and I thought, you’re a jerk and I’m never—I never want to be around you again."

The pair seemed to have worked through their issues and are close friends now.

"Now of course we’re best buddies and we hang out," she concluded.
