GERMANY: When most diners are served an unsatisfactory meal at a restaurant, they complain to the manager and vow never to eat there again. Not so in Germany where two disgruntled diners attacked the chef that prepared their food.
Miki Nozawa, a 57-year-old Japanese chef died as a result of injuries he sustained from two men he served at a restaurant on the North Sea island of Sylt, according to the Australian Associated Press. Nozawa was attacked by two men who claimed they “didn’t like” the meals he served. A dish of fried noodles with beef and vegetables was at the root of the disagreement. Nozawa died of “severe brain injuries and internal bleeding.”
The two men were arrested but later released due to lack of evidence.
Nozawa was a celebrity chef who was famous for his Italian-Japanese fusion cuisine having served the likes of Mikhail Gorbachev, Denzel Washington and Phil Collins.
