Five Questions: Why Einat Admony Says in Today’s Food Industry, ‘It’s All Free and Open’


This feature was produced in collaboration between Vox Creative and Infiniti. Vox Media editorial staff was not involved in the creation or production of this content.

Inspired by the opening of MOFAD Lab and in partnership with Infiniti USA, we asked five cool chefs to answer five questions about flavor.

Einat Admony is the chef and owner at three Middle Eastern restaurants in New York, Balaboosta, Bar Bolonat,Taïm, and the newly opened Combina. She’s known for her spices, but her one of her favorite flavors is almost sickly sweet: the fake grape taste of bright-purple grape juice, served to children as they welcome the Jewish Sabbath with a Kiddush on Friday nights. See her answers to our flavor questionnaire in this video.
