Death by Salad???

23 Aug

So, the CC was webhopping a few days ago and ran across this article about a British celebrity chef confusing a benign herb with a deadly cousin of the nightshade family.  Fat Hen, is supposed to be rather innocuous, while henbane , or stinking nightshade can cause hallucinations, vomiting, and death. His response was kind of a “my bad,” and a retraction from the publication where the interview was published.

Kinda makes you rethink the whole micro greens craze, don’t it?
