Over the years, many chefs have made it their mission to create their own meat patty masterpieces by adding unexpected ingredients, flavours and textures, elevating this originally humble meal into a 3 Michelin star experience!

As the summer draws to a close and the smell of BBQ still hangs in the air, the idea of a beefless world is for many of us just too terrible to contemplate. But as we'll see, beef's savoury taste also presents us with some rather unsavoury problems. Beef is a huge contributor to global emissions.

When you read that processed meat has "Grade 1" status, just like cigarette smoking, arsenic, or asbestos, it just means that the WHO is confident in the relationship between processed meat and cancer - NOT that processed meat is as likely to cause cancer as cigarette smoking is.

With more cattle spread across the rolling Alberta foothills than there are people, it's no surprise that Calgary is home to some bodacious burgers. Whether you like 'em spiced, stuffed, or au naturale, you'll be able to find some ground chuck game changers in Calgary. This list grills up a healthy dose of Alberta pride, served up in quarter and half pound portions. Open wide.

Bern Kotelko grew up farming near Vegreville near Edmonton in Alberta. When you start having that many cows in one place the poop starts to pile up. Rather than see that as a problem Kotelko and his business partners saw it as an opportunity.

If you've just been shopping at the supermarket or hardware store, chances are you've brought a little bit of tropical rainforest home with you. And chances are some of it was illegally cleared.

Food processed in concordance with Muslim dietary laws is called Halal. Today, halal meat is largely produced in commercial slaughterhouses staffed by specially trained Muslim workers who conduct the actual slaughter and supervise the subsequent processing. But the focus of halal is on ensuring spiritual purity rather than science-based cleanliness, so buying halal food does not guarantee your food will be safe.

I love beef. Burgers, steaks, roasts, tacos and even meatloaf. As an Albertan, I can proudly say I eat some of the finest beef in the entire world. My dad has been a Red Seal Chef for close to 40 years, and I'm not too shabby in a kitchen myself. So did we feel bad when we had throw out a ton of beef we bought on sale from Wal-Mart, because it might be contaminated by E.Coli? Yes we did.
The management of XL Foods Inc., which has been in the news for causing the biggest beef recall in Canadian history, has not figured out the most important issue is how the company governs food safety. Neither XL foods or its parent company appear to have any independent directors, who are essential to ensuring internal management does not cut corners.
No one likes to be controlled, least of which entrepreneurial employees. However, ask yourself if defective internal controls are worth the price, in terms of reputation and financial loss. It can indeed be a run on the bank if consumers don't have confidence, and it can get worse unless governance checks are put in place.
Establishment 38 is not a lunar outpost operated by Weyland-Yutani. It is a slaughterhouse and meat processing plant in Brooks, Alberta, operated by XL Foods Inc. The CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) has suspended the operating license of Establishment 38 because of the detected presence of E. coli O157:H7. Another food recall, this one crossing almost all provincial borders, is today's sobering headline reality. While the scientists, researchers and investigators of the CFIA have E. coli O157:H7 under the microscope, Canadians have also placed Canada's food safety system on a slide and we're collectively scrutinizing how we got ourselves into such a pickle.
Our massively complex global food system involves billions of supply chain transactions daily.
The relationship with the consumer has evolved and citizens must diligently participate in the food equation in order to prevent food borne illnesses. But, do we have the skills to be active participants in a food system we interact with on multiple occasions daily?
