McDonald's is tired of standing in as a synonym for stoppered arteries and soaring obesity. If you don't like it, don't eat there, and if you eat there, don't eat there all the time. That seems to be the gist of the fast-food empire's new 'tude, as expressed by its senior director of culinary innovation, Daniel Coudreaut, the dude helping to get oatmeal and blueberries on the breakfast menu and apple slices into Happy Meals. The chef defended McDonald's menu in a press event in Cleveland last week and Ohio.com reports his defiance and denial that the Golden Arches represents everything wrong with the country's diet. "I don't see anything on the menu that's unhealthy," Coudreaut noted, oblivious to the 42 grams of fat hitting hearts in the shape of a quarter pounder with cheese. The chef is a fan of having a weekly Big Mac himself, lets his kids eat at McDonald's once a week, and in the most serious delusion of grandeur, even compares McNuggets to fancy, chef-prepared "forcemeat." But his biggest faux pas came when he went after Thomas Keller and the French Laundry.
