Stomping on garlic with your shoes on is apparently not the correct way to prepare food.
The Rockland County health department hit the Great China Buffet restaurant with two violations after someone took pictures of an employee stomping on a bowl of garlic with his boots in an alley.
The photographer alerted health inspectors.
"I go back there, and the guy's stepping on garlic," said Dan Barreto, who used to eat at the restaurant and took the above photo. "There he was just jumping up and down on it, smashing it up, having a good time." Hahahahahahhaha!!
I suppose the health department does not consider a person's shoe or boot a proper instrument to use in food preparation.
Here's a video of the story and an interview with Dan Barreto, who took the pic of garlic being stomped.
