Einat Admony’s fast-casual kosher Taim (tagline: “It’s a vegetarian mecca”) has made good on its promise to get New Yorkers feasting on chickpeas and pitas with the opening of its newest Financial District location, which happens to be dangerously close to the Forward’s own offices.
The ownership of hummus, that mashed chickpea puree whose ascendance to the higher echelons of trendiness might have come as a surprise to those who’ve been eating it for years, has always been a sticky question. Does it belong to the Jews, seeing as it is one of the tentpole foods of Israel? Does it belong to the Arabs, seeing as it was historically an Arab dish, which Jewish companies like Sabra successfully monetized as exotic cultural currency? Can’t we all just get along?
Sabra Dipping Company, LLC, is making Chesterfield, Virginia, its home and expanding it a whopping 40,000 feet (its fourth expansion to date), all to get hummus into the hands of consumers faster.
Sorry to break it to you, but you’ve probably been mispronouncing the name of this Levantine dip made of mashed chickpeas and tahini all wrong.
