These outstanding experts in their fields will discuss and explore how governments, organizations and individuals are working to bring cultures together through food. As a new and understudied field, how can this tool of diplomacy be used more broadly in conflict resolution? How can culinary diplomacy provide a greater impact on citizen-to-citizen interaction? As a growing field, who are emerging as leaders, and how can individuals play a role in diplomacy?
HIGHLIGHT OF THE EVENING FROM 6:00-6:30pm
“THE COOKING KIDS”
Directly from Slovenia “The Cooking Kids” debut in the USA.
A program developed by Ms. Anka Peljhan is a brilliant strategy
that introduces cooking skills to youngsters by emphasizing the use of healthy, local, and natural ingredients.
The Cooking Kids program fosters self-confidence in the kitchen, boosts the team work and nurtures mutual understanding. It also helps pass on to the next generations traditional cuisine to become part of family meals again. Next to cooking, children participating in the program learn about home gardening and a healthy life style.
The Cooking Kids Program is supported by the Weston A. Price Foundation and was made possible by the Embassy of Slovenia.
