California-DOH-Gloves-Bare-Hands-Ready-To-Eat-Foods.jpgA new California law requires chefs wear gloves or use utensils when touching any foods that are not going to be "thoroughly cooked" or reheated before being served. And chefs continue to be unhappy about it. Chef Ludo Lefebvre tells the LA Times: "I season all the dishes at the end using my fingers. For 27 years, all my [adult] life, I've touched fleur de sel with my fingers and I know exactly how many grains of salt just by feel. With a glove there's no sensation. It's scary."
