Reichl Defines Street Food


During a panel discussion that was part of a three-day, $1,095 conference held by the Culinary Institute of America, Ruth Reichl argued that in defining street food, one couldn’t necessarily call it “ethnic”: “New York street food is not ethnic. Not necessarily. It's hot dogs, it's hamburgers, it’s ... it’s knishes. And in front of many businesses there are guys who make omelets on the street." [Mother Jones]
