Okay, so we change the names of the forums ...

Founded by the late Daniel Rogov, focusing primarily on wines that are either kosher or Israeli.

Hi Robin,

At the risk of starting another controversy, it must be said that there is no such thing as "Israeli food", unless finely chopped salad and mass produced falafel and humus qualify for such a definition...

best,

Mike

Haha! Looking over the forum, Mike, I do get the impression that there's a lot of talk about restaurants in Israel in that forum, though!

I do kind of like Yehoshua's "5000 Years of food what now?" :lol:

In an odd way, that's an intriguing name for the forum on many levels. I am thinking though that you just posted on the wrong thread. :mrgreen:

Nah, I always wanted to use that line.

If I had to to work out the why, I'd say it's the only way to work haut Israeli cuisine and haut kosher cuisine into one forum. OK, I know there's high class kosher restaurants in Israel, but most aren't.

I'm just back from Tel Aviv where I had a great meal at Le Trocadéro, owned and managed by the same owner of Le Chateaubriand in Paris (his son now runs it there), IMHO one of the best Kosher restaurants there and among the best (K of course) in the world! I'll post later about it more in details on the culinary section.

I am glad to know that you are at least half-kidding, David. I do not mean to be confrontative, but I must tell you, my business advisors have a strong position that any forum member who threatens us with litigation should be immediately banned from the forum for our own protection. I'll assume your remark was "half-kidding," but would encourage you to avoid pressing this idea.

the behavior in the forum since Rogov's demise has been disgusting for anyone used to the civil behavior in the wine industry by US standards

...come on over and say it to my face and I'll wack you over the head with my cheapest bottle of wine


Hi David - I think I've got an idea that will surpass any that have graced this thread so far --> You should go out and start your own wine discussion forum. You can be the owner and sole moderator and you can "wack" whomever you want with whatever weapon you choose and talk about yourself as much as you want without having any "disgusting" people interfere. You can be like Sasha Baron Cohen in the Dictator. Come on, do it - PLEASE!
