Food connects people. Over the years, national meals are spreading to other countries, through trade, migration and the various other ways that today’s globalized world brings. Today, countries can present their “haute cuisine” on the international scene, hosting gastronomic events and festivals, as well as local specialties from the local cuisine or market.
Food is an important aspect of national security, social entrepreneurship and peace building. Different communities are now thinking about food in a way that has never been thought of before. Through gastrodiplomacy, we have the opportunity to learn about food culture in different countries of the world and chefs try their skills to get our stomachs and hearts by preparing and presenting their own national cuisine.
