Roy Choi Quits Meat & Maybe Cooking; Wants Jamie Oliver on the Phone

New, 1 comment

Can someone get Jamie Oliver on the phone for Roy Choi, please? The Los Angeles based chef famous for his Korean tacos and role in the rise of food trucks recently wrote a blog post in which he talked about going vegetarian, thinking about quitting cooking (!), and wanting to help kids. Oh, and getting British chef/world saver Jamie Oliver on his side.

On becoming a vegetarian: "I will no longer eat meat for my own consumption. Animals be talking to me. They told me..stop. Stop, Roy. Please." So, Roy has stopped.

On helping people: "I talk to animals and kids. I feed adults. Time to switch. Talk to adults. Feed animals and kids." Which, great. But is quitting cooking really necessary? Oliver has restaurants and saves the world and, you know, it seems to be working out pretty well for him. Anyway, Jamie, give the guy a call.
