It’s all very well for the people doing food challenges feeling ill and doing something horrible all over the floor but it’s often the hard working staff at the restaurants that provide these challenges who help make it happen. It’s about time they got some more attention We returned to one of our favourite gastronomic haunts, Red Dog Saloon, to chat with Matthew Kearney, 32, who is one of the staff at the restaurant.

An American woman who weighs 110 pounds is ranked the fourth best competitive eater in the world, according to The Daily Mail.
Miki Sudo, 28, told the Mail that she has made $25,000 from food contests. Some of the eating challenges she has completed include scarfing down 192 chicken wings in ten minutes and 17.5 pounds of chili in six minutes.
She holds three world records: the fastest time to eat 50 Cadbury’s Creme Eggs (6 minutes, 15 seconds); eating four Milky Way bars with snakes wrapped around the neck (1 minute, 37 seconds); and the record for drinking a gallon of milk before a sky jump (54 seconds).
She said: ‘I love food but I never meant to pursue competitive eating. I am so glad I found it because I’m having a blast.’
When she isn’t competing, Sudo will only consume one meal a day – usually a large salad.
