Why Did Benjamin Netanyahu Serve Shinzo Abe Dessert In A Shoe?
Social media uproar after Japan's PM served dessert in a shoe at Netanyahu's home

Whether intentionally or unintentionally, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may have made a faux paux of sort when his renowned and creative chef served visiting Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe with desert dishes in a shoe on last week May 2.
Japanese etiquette cherishes cleanliness and regards shoes as something left outside the home: the Lonely Planet guide states that "you'll always have to remove footwear when entering a private home, traditional accommodation (minshuku or ryokan), and temple halls".
The chef's publicist launched a press release saying the dessert was displayed in a "high-quality piece of artwork fabricated from forged steel within the form of a shoe; it's not an actual shoe". Even the prime minister, ministers and members of parliament do not wear shoes to work ... The diplomat cited by Israeli news agencies continued: "What exactly did the illustrious chef Segev think to himself?" Japanese culture prizes cleanliness and shoes are "despised", as one diplomat explained.
Israeli celebrity chef Segev Moshe has served Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe dessert in a shoe. After the main meal, Segev rolled out the special dessert-various chocolates served in metal shoes.
Yediot Aharonot, a popular Israeli newspaper, on Monday reported that "Japanese diplomats, Israeli Foreign Ministry officials and high-ranking Israeli diplomats who previously served in Japan were shocked by the idea". It is unclear if Mr. Abe was personally distributed by the gesture, but diplomats, both Israel and Japanese, took offense on his behalf.
"This was an insensitive decision", a senior Israeli official, who was not named, told the paper. A disrespect of the highest order. "We have the utmost respect for the Japanese prime minister".
"I want to tell you something", Netanyahu said in a short video posted Friday to his Facebook account.
Some of Segev's Instagram's followers weren't supportive of the chef's recent art.
"While you cook dinner at a diplomatic meal, the minimal you are able to do is inquire in regards to the visitor".
The chef's Instagram account reveals that he also served U.S. president Donald Trump and his wife Melania during their Israel visit. While some praised the chef's creativity, others said it was humiliating to see that desserts were served in shoes because shoes are not worn inside homes in Japan.
