A new bill in the state Assembly would ruin restaurant food and baked goods as we know them.

In a deeply misguided gesture that is also an abuse of the legislative process, a New York City Assemblyman is pushing a nanny-state bill that would ban the use of all forms of salt in the preparation and cooking of all restaurant food.

I think theyve already done it in a lot of places because I always have to ask for salt. Just in case, I also carry a thing of sea salt because I hate bland foods.

That is utterly preposterous and quite an insult to the Chef's skills. Good cooking needs good seasoning and customers are always entitled to add more salt if they wish to or ask for the food to be low sodium.

This is just nannying. Great food without salt becomes bland and insipid. This guy obviously has no palate and no respect for the culinary Arts.
