Japanese PM stumbles over dessert served in shoe

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahed of his meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem Wednesday

The person responsible for the unusual creation is Segev Moshe, a celebrity chef who serves as a personal cook to the Mr. and Ms. Netanyahu. People do not wear shoes in the home or the office and visitors are expected to comply by removing their footwear before entering inside.

However, it is still hard to imagine how Moshe's team could conceive that a dessert shoe would be a good idea.

Now, this would be considered grotesque in any world culture, but to present food in a shoe to the leader of a country that is famous for table etiquettes is just a huge error in judgment by the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or whoever approved of the dessert.

Segev, who is also head chef for the Israeli airline El Al, uploaded an Instagram of himself with the Netanyahus and their guests, along with the four shoe-shaped desserts at the table. "No culture puts shoes on the table", he said, according to The Jerusalem Post.

And this metal shoe wasn't just inside the home, it was on top of the dinner table, filled with chocolate pralines, The Washington Post reported.

One Israeli diplomat who served in Japan was equally livid: "There is nothing more despicable in Japanese culture than a shoe".

The article quoted an unidentified senior Israeli official as calling it "an insensitive decision". A spokesperson for Mr. Segev released a statement describing him as an "especially creative chef" offering "extraordinary culinary experiences".

"It is like giving a Jewish guest chocolate inside a vessel in the shape of a pig", he said.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu complained about the press ignoring last week's visit to Israel of Japan's prime minister, despite the fact Hebrew media ran more than 50 items about various aspects of the trip.

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. "There's nothing decrease than a shoe in Japanese tradition".

His Instagram account reveals that he has also served U.S. president Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump during their Israel visit. "I can tell you we were offended on behalf of our prime minister".

Nonetheless, Segev Moshe's followers believed the chef ought to have performed his homework earlier than getting ready for the meal.
