Yesterday, Thrillist posted a video showcasing kosher pizza in its series Food/Groups, which covers various communities and their relationships to food. The video features Chanie Apfelbaum, the kosher food blogger behind Busy in Brooklyn, as she explains to Thrillist contributor Dave Infante why she loves the Midwood-based kosher eatery Pizza Time.
Are you a JewBoo (Jewish Buddhist) looking for a cool crisp IPA to satisfy your thirst and match your personality? Look no further than this Bhindi IPA spotted at Beer Bazar in Jerusalem featuring a chai-necklace clad Buddha:

If you’re curious what the expression “casual racism” refers to, you need look no further than conversations about food. I’m thinking of things like when a white-owned restaurant gets referred to as the “elevated” version of the “ethnic” cuisine it’s riffing on, or even just why Americans will pay more for Italian food than Korean. (A foolish decision as well as a casually racist one, but I digress.) If you only trust restaurants that promise farm-to-table ingredients, and do so with copious images of a white man dressed like a Brooklyn hipster-farmer circa 2010, then yes, you might do well to examine some of your preferences.
