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]
