Rudoren Under Fire for Cultural Appropriation | Washington Free Beacon: "New York Times Jerusalem bureau chief Jodi Rudoren’s claim that she created an innovative new food she calls “Cheesies” has outraged culturally sensitive foodies, one of whom claims she has engaged in a gross display of “cultural appropriation.”
Rudoren recently showed off her culinary chops in a New York Times “video notebook” that instructs viewers on how to make the Cheesies at home.
The Cheesie is a broken taco shell with cheese dropped over it. The Cheesies—known in some corners of the world as “nachos”—are then placed in the oven until the cheese is melted to the chef’s satisfaction."
