Conflict Kitchen

One of the things that I find most interesting about food history is the association between food and culture. This project is a specific way to ease people into a conversation about the people and culture in a country with which the United States is currently in conflict.

Sometimes, seeing a country as a group of individual people is the best way to come to an understanding of their humanity. Food is the most direct way to share a common, everyday experience of those individuals. No, it may not bring about world peace or lead someone away from a lifetime of prejudices, but it can serve as a way to start a conversation with those who are open to learning, ideas, and the idea that humanity is connected through the simplest of everyday actions.
