Yes, they tend to Jewify recipes in the US. I remember almost no "Greek" restaurant there had pork souvlaki. Only lamb and chicken. :?

I agree. Wash, wash, wash! It's either full of germs or has been soaked in bleach solution. But Brits are generally poor at washing their hands properly, so the UK government has recommended not handling raw chicken and instead chuck it straight from the bag into the oven/pot. :P

Would have been wiser to remind people to wash their hands well, clean surfaces and not leave dishes unrinsed etc and that way, they could have killed two birds with one stone ...
