One of the most fun battles on Iron Chef America was between Iron Chef Michael Symon and Chef Duff Goldman. The two men are quite good friends and rivals. Well, Goldman is also a very nice guy overall. After hearing about an Oregon baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple, Goldman offered something up really nice. He offered to bake them a cake not only quick as he could, but completely free of charge.
Goldman, who is the executive chef of Charm City Cakes, informed the Huffington Post that it makes no sense for the Oregon chef to be against these ladies’ nuptials. He said:
I just wanted to say that… if the couple that’s out there — if you guys want, I will make you a cake for free, drive it out to Portland at no charge, just to right this wrong, because this guy’s an idiot.
For a cake decorator to really feel like he needed to take a stand and say, “You’re not getting married. Or I’m not providing the sweet enjoyment for your wedding!” It just make absolutely no sense. It’s petty, it’s small. I mean this guy has wrapped up his hatred in the cloak of religion.
