Chef Works Weekly Bites: The case of the bullheaded beefalo

Welcome to Week 35 of 2020. Chef Works® Weekly Bites is where we take a dive into the notable and fun food stories of the week.


The eyes of a nation are glued to Connecticut as a rogue “beefalo” continues to buffalo police. It’s pretty much on par with “Panda Watch.”

For more than a month, a spunky beefalo has been on the run since it escaped “processing.” Police have even brought in drones to aid with the search. Here’s more from the Hartford Courant:

A cross between cattle and bison, the beefalo escaped on Aug. 3 as it was being taken off a trailer at Plymouth Meats. Since then, some people have been rallying to save the animal on community Facebook pages, while others have pondered the number of prime steaks it would produce.

Fortunately, the owner has said the beefalo will be spared if/when captured. You can read the full story here.



For all of the Pumpkin Spice fans out there – who no doubt have been flooding Starbucks of late – you can now get a Pumpkin Spice donut to go with your coffee.

Krispy Kreme is now offering Pumpkin Spice on their original glaze and a new Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Roll. Here’s more from Delish.
