Steer a vegetarian course
When doe-eyed Wayne (the steer) was brought into the MasterChef kitchen, how many horrified viewers thought, ‘‘ Surely they wouldn’t!’’ Thankfully, Wayne wasn’t killed on the show. Instead, flesh from a fellow steer was used for the steak challenge. This ‘‘ faceless’’ steer would, however, have been every bit as endearing as Wayne. Why should any gentle and inoffensive animal be cruelly robbed of his precious life for something as fickle as taste?
