Food Diplomacy: Mexican Dinner invitation
The cafe opened in 2010, with Iranian food the first featured cuisine. That was followed by periods of Afghan and Venezuelan food. This month, in a sign of the lingering tension between Washington and Tehran, the Conflict Kitchen is wrapping up another Iranian iteration. One recent Saturday, it featured a Persian dinner party attended by customers in Pittsburgh and diners in Tehran, who were linked via video chat.
What started in 2003 as a U.S. public health campaign has now become a full-fledged global movement with homegrown versions of a “cut out meat one day a week” program in 21 countries, from “Kottfri Mandag” in Sweden to “Segunda Sem Carne” in Brazil. This rapid global growth isn’t the result of a big-budget NGO or a federation with bylaws and quarterly meetings; it’s driven by committed advocates from all walks of life — celebrities like Sir Paul McCartney, foodies and chefs, prominent scientists and physicians and regular moms and students who share the belief that eating less meat is good for our health and good for the planet.

Frequently asked questions
Q: What is Nordic Food Diplomacy?
A: Nordic food is making its name all over the world. This has been recognised by the Nordic Council of Ministers and by the creation of the New Nordic Food Programme. As part of the programme, Nordic Food Diplomacy work to highlight the Nordic cuisine at official meetings, at events at the Nordic embassies abroad and on many other occasions when promoting opportunities can arise.
MANIFESTO FOR THE NEW NORDIC CUISINE
The New Nordic Food Program springs from the great Manifesto of New Nordic Cuisine that was created by a group of innovative Nordic chefs in the year of 2004.
As Nordic chefs we find that the time has now come for us to create a New Nordic Kitchen, which in virtue of its good taste and special character compares favourable with the standard of the greatest kitchens of the world.
