Gusto came across some amusing food news and thought it was worthy of a good mention. An article in thea recent Food News Bulletin distributed by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Australia has highlighted that a French court has ruled custard pie throwing a criminal offence. The story says that a 57-year-old Belgian man, Noel Godin, was fined 23,000 euros for throwing a pineapple-flavoured pie at a former French presidential candidate Jean-Pierre Chevenement. The court is reported to have said: “The fact of receiving on one’s person, by surprise, a projectile – even a cream tart, constitutes an act of violence which regardless of the physical assault is of a nature to provoke emotional shock.”
Apparently the rogue tart thrower’s targets have included Bill Gates, French interior minister Nicolas Sarkozy and film director Jean-Luc Godard.
The article says that Mr Godin’s lawyer would appeal the decision.
