When food brings people together
Jonathan dedicates his burger of the month to Medair
“My name is Jonathan Saber. I am 23 years old and I am one of the five owners of the restaurant “Oh My!” in Yverdon-les-Bains. My motto is: “A restaurant that isn’t socially engaged, isn’t fulfilling its potential, because since the dawn of time, food has brought people together.” With good food, we can create an environment conducive to the exchange of ideas, sharing, engagement and discussion. That’s why I want to use my restaurant as a platform to give visibility to Medair’s work by dedicated the December “burger of the month” to Medair.
Being the son of a Coptic Egyptian, I am particularly touched by Medair’s action in the Middle East. That’s why this burger includes hummus. The burger’s unique colouring comes from the beet juice that I add to the recipe to acknowledge that Medair’s headquarters is in Switzerland. On top of that, beets are in season this time of year! Organic mutton sourced from a local farm is served with a green salad with goat cheese, radishes, and a must-have: mint sauce.
My goal is to help make my clients aware of Medair’s efforts, to remind ourselves of how lucky we are to have enough to eat, and to give people a way to get involved.”
