Dishing up dialogue at Conflict Kitchen

Hosted by

What we eat isn't just a reflection of our personal preferences but also of our culture, history and identity. That was one of the takeaways for food writer Simran Sethi after paying a visit to Pittsburgh to learn how food is being used as a starting point for these discussions. By serving a rotating menu of conversation and cuisine from nations at odds with the United States — including indigenous nations like the Haudenosaunee — Conflict Kitchen is "helping people expand their palates and transform stories about conflict." Learn more about the fraught history of fry bread and how Conflict Kitchen forges “awareness and connections one meal at a time” on the Good Food blog.
