The Culture of Culinary Diplomacy

Headlines this week in PD News had a decidedly foodie focus, serving up stories on food festivals, food aid, and religious feasts. A Ghanaian chef is collecting surplus food from food manufacturers and suppliers to feed the hungry, with similar initiatives taking place in Lebanon and India using leftover meals from weddings. Meanwhile in Japan, a new mobile app—BonAppetour—is connecting tourists and Tokyo natives in traditional Japanese culinary and cultural activities such as tea ceremonies, lessons in gyoza making, and sake tasting.
