Aside from the award winning dishes served, the restaurant also hosts speakers and activists who give their personal perspectives on the global issues between the United States and the "conflict" nation. Through the shared communal experience of sharing a meal, enemies who disagree on politics, race, religion, and distribution of resources can sit together, eat, and talk.
So, enjoy International Food Day and remember that sometimes sitting and eating together is about much more than the food on the plate.
The past versions of Conflict Kitchen include, Afghanistan, North Korea, Cuba, Iran, and Venezuela.
