But hummus in Exile, particularly in that Golden Medinah the United States, tends to fall victim to a number of grievous errors on the part of legions of well-meaning but clueless hippies, natural foods companies and fusion restaurants.
Read the whole rant. Though I've mercifully never had (or heard of) Wild Garden Hummus Dip, I agree completely with the distinction between American and Middle Eastern hummus (or as I prefer to call it, hummus vs. chumus). However, I permit a few "fixins" beyond those listed there, viz. za'tar and tz'nobar (pine nuts). Does that make me a clueless American?
