Israeli Chef Serves Japanese PM a Dessert in Shoes

Повар шокировал премьер-министра Японии насыпав еду в ботинки

"Not only do they not enter their homes in shoes, you won't find any shoes in their bureaus".

Distancing itself from the faux pas, Israel's Foreign Ministry said it was not involved in approving the dishes for the meal.

Chef Moshe put the chocolates on a napkin stuffed inside a black men's baroque Oxford shoe that was placed on the table in front of each guest. "If it was humor, we don't think it is amusing; we were offended on behalf of our prime minister", a Japanese diplomat, who was not named, told Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot.

In fact, as one senior Israeli diplomat who had served in Japan pointed out to Yediot Aharonot, an Israeli news agency: "There is nothing more despised in Japanese culture than shoes".

But it seems the universally known fact about Japanese culture was lost on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whose chef served dessert to the Japanese leader in a shoe.

The same article quoted an unnamed Israel official saying, "This was an insensitive decision". A disrespect of the highest order.

'What exactly did the illustrious chef Segev think to himself.




Israel's Foreign Ministry commented on the dessert catastrophe, diplomatically washing its hands of the dessert selection.

"We respect and respect the chef".

A source close to the chef stressed that the dessert was not served in a real shoe but rather in leather-looking metal sculptures forged by industrial designer Tom Dixon. He added, "If this is meant to be humor, we do not find it amusing".

An expert in Japan-Middle East relations suggested the shoe dessert may have constituted Israel's undercover insult to show disappointment in Japan's policy in the Middle East, which traditionally has supported Palestinian rights and United Nations resolutions to end the Israeli Occupation.

Nonetheless, Segev Moshe's followers believed the chef ought to have performed his homework earlier than getting ready for the meal. "If you can't be creative, try at least to be curious and learn something about your guests' culture", another appalled user wrote.

When President Trump visited Israel, Moshe prepared his dessert as well.

The Israeli prime minister's office explained that it did not check what was to be served at the dinner in advance and that the dessert was part of the chef's creativity.
