(Eater)   At this trendy Los Angeles eatery you can spend 14 dollars for a slice of toast. The 1/4 inch of mold? it's a superfood that is completely free of charge   (eater.com) divider line

I will say, a lot of the personal complaints I've seem about these restaurants (ie: not enough pay, verbal abuse, stealing recipes ) aren't exactly unique.

but damn that mold looks nasty. That's a bit of a new twist.

If places charging normal prices can get by without resorting to illegal tactics, it shows you that all the money from the high prices was going straight to the owners.

Sqirl must have a massive pair of balls to charge that much for mouldy jam on toast.

I mean how else can you afford to pay yourself six figures to run a restaurant?

I always throw moldy stuff out, but only the part exposed to the air gets moldy and the rest is pretty safe.
If they do not use a lot of sugar or citrus then the only way to prevent this is by keeping it in smaller containers.

HIPAA?  No, HACCP.

Not sure I would trust anyone in the foodservice business that doesn't understand the difference.

The owner's post justifying the growth of all that mold on the jam they put on their overpriced toast has a lot of bullshiat in it. A bit if "Our jam is better as it has less sugar and tastes like fruit," "mold is natural," "the jam is safe according to experts", and "the mold is found on delicious foods like cured meats and cheeses."

If you run a restaurant, you shouldn't have moldy food. Especially on food that you're going to sell to people. When cooked and stored properly, it shouldn't be growing mold, so you're doing something wrong.

Even beneficial molds can produce toxins that are harmful to people. That's why they wash the mold off dry cured sausages and remove the casings to be sure there isn't harmful levels of mold toxins. To claim that removing the mold makes the jam "safe" is wrong and to double down with the same mold is found on cheeses and cured meats is disingenuous.

I'll sell this to you for $14. Can I start a restaurant that only sells one thing?

You're selling it too cheaply. That's at least $20 if you use the right buzzwords and overblown adjectives.

Organic, ancient grain, naturally leavened toast, hand-mashed organically-grown fair trade avocado, Alaskan wild-caught cured smoked salmon, house-pickled foraged capers, wild dill, and graced with an organic free-range cruelty-free egg.

Excellent.
You can now sell it for $20.95 and not feel any guilt at suckering the gullibe.

*gullible.

More and more I wonder why I even go to restaurants. I can make toast with non-moldy jam at home.
