Momofuku’s secret sauce: A 30-year-old CEO

In the open kitchen, Chang, the company’s founder and culinary mastermind, stood in front of a whiteboard, attempting to sketch out a menu from a slew of dishes that his chefs had just presented for approval: seven-spice chicken wings, curry-stuffed doughnuts, chicken katsu hot dogs. A problem emerged — none of this was exactly light fare.“We could have a radicchio salad with a spicy hozon dressing,” offered one chef.“No one loves radicchio,” Chang said. “No one eats it, man, I’m sorry.”“We could call it bitter greens,” suggested another.Chang didn’t buy it. “No one wants bitter greens,” he said. “Stop being...

Friends give Syrian children a route off the streets and back into class

In a small classroom overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, young Syrian refugees learn mathematics on portable computers – their first steps towards formal education. A few months ago, most of them were trying to make a living on the streets of the Lebanese capital, Beirut. One of the pupils, Fahed, was just 10 when he started working at a vegetable store to help his mother make ends meet. He put in 10-hour shifts for just US$3 a day.

Here are some highlights from Barry Iverson’s “The Tour,” which runs at Tintera in Cairo until September 30.  ‘Antikhana Street Lift, Cairo’ Iverson’s solo exhibition juxtaposes found images with his own photography of historical spaces in Egypt and the Levant as they are now. “The Tour,” the catalogue suggests, “offers a vibrant commentary on past dreams and lives we have inherited in the present” and “obliges viewers to reconsider these seemingly old spaces.” ‘Bab Al Jabiya, Damascus’ This hand-colored image is typical of the American photographer’s inquiry into “the persistent image of, and desire for, the ‘Orient’ in our collective...
