rick-moonen-150.jpgAfter Top Chef Masters judge Jay Rayner criticized his final dish of New Zealand venison for being "staggeringly unsustainable," chef Rick Moonen took to Facebook: "I guess that Jay wants me to fly my food in by hot air balloon... Some people should not be allowed to speak.

My menu speaks volumes always has!" Then he commented, "Public Verbal masturbation like a chimp in a zoo." [Facebook] Update: Moonen elaborates further in our interview.
