What is culinary diplomacy?

Culinary diplomacy is a form of cultural diplomacy that uses food and cuisine as a means to promote cross-cultural understanding and international relations. It involves the use of food and cuisine to create a bridge between different cultures and nations, fostering mutual respect and understanding through the sharing of food traditions, recipes, and culinary techniques. Culinary diplomacy can take many forms, from cultural exchange programs and food festivals to formal state dinners and international food summits. Through culinary diplomacy, nations can showcase their unique culinary heritage, build relationships, and promote cultural and economic exchange.
