    Have you guys heard/read about it?

    Noma, Danmark

    In february in some three days of serving 63 out of 78 guests reported sick.

    This was faulted to one of the workers who was prepping mise en place in the morning being sick, sent an email that hes not coming but noone managed to read it.

    When the health inspection came after the incident, they found out that theres no hot water in the faucets designated for hands washing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Surely you can expect more from two star restaurant, and you should.

    90% of the cases of foodborne illness is in fact coming from fecal-oral route. It basically means that we eat awfull lot of shite!
    So wash your fuc*ing hands god damn it.

    Must be a nightmare scenario for a restaurant owner. I remember reading about it (and may have even seen something about it on television news). Wonder if the worker blamed for this still has his job.

    Fat Duck got about 500 people sick a couple years ago, hasn't hurt them too too much.

    I highly doubt there was no hot water in the hand washing sinks. It probably just wasn't at 110 Fahrenheit, which is approximately what the U.S. health inspectors expect for hand washing sinks. Which when you think about it- is kind of silly, as most people adjust the water temp to their personal comfort range. One would need to have a fixed temperature control on the sink to truly regulate that kind of activity. Mike is right though- most people don't spend the proper time/effort to wash their hands in a busy kitchen.

    I thinks its sad! These guys are at the cutting edge of modern cookery, and are not taught basic hygiene/ or its not enforced. I don't care how good the food is, if you make your customers sick due to negligence, you cannot be even considered for the No.1 position. Having said that I would still eat there and will still look at the pretty pictures in Rene's cookbook

    Apart from being closed for few weeks which costed fortune and having the kitchen totally disinfected which costed fortune.

    Plus it was the oysters who werent washing their hands over there, not human being, and a cook
    Like they dont have enough sous chefs to make the hand washing happen.

    Huw exactly right. Lets not talk food/food porn here. The simple fact is people got sick because of lack of hygiene, the simplest thing you should teach your kids about. That is sad.

    I have the advantage of reading Norwegian/Danish newspapers, on the net, and the official statement from the Noma was that they appointed a plumber to fix the problem cause there was no hot water available.

    Just saying.
