Re: “Q&A with chef Todd Ginsberg

Wesleywhatwhat, brad kaplan,

Ginsberg is absolutely branding his food as Israeli.

"I didn't have the soul and the heart yet, understanding what modern Israeli cuisine was. Sure, I've read every single book from [Israeli restaurateur and cookbook author [Yotam] Ottolenghi, I was familiar with [Israeli restaurant] Zahav in Philadelphia, and there's a film called The Search for Israeli Cuisine that was another catalyst for me realizing I didn't yet know enough."

And it is so disheartening.

Re: “The organized chaos of Your DeKalb Farmers Market

I go to BHFM also to get a ingredients for various int'l recipes and for eastern European products. But I would not buy any meat there - no way. The YDFM clearly labels its meats/poultry, it looks clean, no doubt of what you are getting. Also YDFM baked goods are superior to BHFM.

Re: “Q&A with chef Todd Ginsberg

Fortunately America gives everyone choice. Jerusalem bakery (both locations in the Atlanta area) are owned and run by Palestinians. Most mediocre Palestinian food I've ever had (compared to NYC and Miami (yes there are Palestinians/Greater Syria immigrants that landed in hispanic countries & made it to the US).

Re: “Q&A with chef Todd Ginsberg

Dear Todd: As you see your sandwiches have caused a terrible war of words to errupt behind the keyboards of the Palestinian community, each and every person commenting should be considered dangerous Yelpers waiting to wage a one star Jihad against your new venture. I suggest you change the name of your place to.....

INFIDELI !!!!

Re: “Q&A with chef Todd Ginsberg

"to profit from selling Arabic food, but packaging it as “Israeli” is racist and absolutely outrageous."

So I guess Chef Boyardee is Racist and Outrageous for selling his mini raviolis, which may seem italian but are crude replicas. lol

You are a MORON.

"Sorry but this food is not Palestinian! The Shawarma and the Shakshuka come with the Ottomans!!!"

Which also make a nice comfortable addition to any plush armchair.

Re: “Q&A with chef Todd Ginsberg

I think those who will boycott this business should do so, it would certainly make the place safer, there is nothing I fear more than a man who has spent the wee hours of the morning praying and then strapping a bunch of Russian Dressing and Pita to his body before blowing himself up during the lunch rush! Talk about of gooey mess!

Re: “Q&A with chef Todd Ginsberg

MBC- "like burning down someone's house but then enjoying their awesome record collection".

If said house was burnt down, more than likely the records which are made of vynil would melt and thus not be playable. Logic, try it soon...

Re: “Q&A with chef Todd Ginsberg

I think the palestininas should commence immediate launch of torpedo sandwiches on the region, followed by the constructuion of sanwich stands on the left bank, this could be followed by a pastrami on rye bombardement by Israel in retaliation for the bread and mayo shortage that will follow such a bold move.

REUBEN JIHAD!!!!!

Re: “Q&A with chef Todd Ginsberg

When you use the term Zionist in your comment, it essentially negates any claim you might have had regarding the high ground.

Re: “Q&A with chef Todd Ginsberg

Its clear that Todd Ginsburg and his collaborators still don’t “have the heart and soul…understanding” of what he calls “Israeli” cuisine. By not acknowledging the Palestinian origins of the food he intends to serve, Ginsburg has outed “Yalla” as just another venture in cultural appropriation, regardless of whatever weak assertions he makes about “respecting traditions from all over that part of the world.”

I assume perhaps Todd, Shelley, Jennifer and Ben have not fully considered what a political project they are involved in or how it is connected to the historical and ongoing displacement and oppression of the Palestinian people. Now might be the time to do so:

Re: “Q&A with chef Todd Ginsberg

I can't.

*You don't claim to open a restaurant that respects the traditions of a region then not even visit multiple parts of that region then in the end use a name from that region but then call it the cuisine of an occupying power that appropriated the food from that region would everyone please just read a book*

Also, please do not reduce the struggle and genocide of the Palestinian people to an issue of "breaking bread." They have literally had everything taken from them. Their land. Their water. Their means for survival. Their crops. Their history. Their children. Their lives.

And to not include even a single mention of Palestine?

Boycott.
