"I'm going to destroy the mother*@$&#@."

That's roughly all of last night's roast of Anthony Bourdain that we can share and not get a phone call from our lawyers (or possibly our moms). The epithet was delivered by Bourdain's close friend, chef Eric Ripert on the red carpet of a New York City Wine & Food Festival event at which fellow chefs and acid-tongued comedians took turns dicing up the cantankerous chef/author/TV host/pot-stirrer/traveler - all in the name of charity.

Kate Krader (@kkrader on Twitter) is Food & Wine's restaurant editor. When she tells us where to find our culinary heart's desire, we listen up.

As Election Day fever ramps up more and more each day, you might have gotten caught up in it. And, you might be asking yourself a few timely questions: How can I make my vote heard now (especially if I didn’t register for early voting)? How can I register my vote in more than one state? And how can I vote more than once?

The answer to all those questions, from a strictly legal perspective, is you can’t. However, if you want to cast your vote by choosing entrées at a few select restaurants in and around Washington, D.C., then it’s all good.

Kellogg's, the parent company of popular cereals like Corn Flakes, Froot Loops and Rice Krispies, has issued a voluntary recall of its Mini-Wheats products "due to the possible presence of fragments of flexible metal mesh," according to information provided by the company. The affected products were sold at retailers nationwide, and there have yet to be any reports of injuries.

"At Kellogg, our number one priority is the quality and safety of our foods. We have a comprehensive metal control program that includes magnets and metal detection devices. We are working with our metal detector supplier to understand why the equipment did not detect the mesh fragments," said Kellogg's in an online statement.

The recalled products include Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size (Original) and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size with the letters KB, AP or FK before or after the "Best If Used Before" date.
