When Food Brings Cultures Together

BY SONIA KAR
@ VOL 31 ON SEP 07, 2016

"People were interested not about only the food that it was made, but also the backgroud from where did it come from."

In "When Food Brings Cultures Together" from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol.31Sonia Kar is an independent entrepreneur who tells us the idea about her online platform, where different cultures meet through their menus. We human beings are very different, each and every one of us have some principles and values in us which have been influenced by our family, culture, upbringing and country. We all are effectively ambassadors or representatives of our families, cultural backgrounds and countries. But how often do we share our culture or are aware about the culture of others and can this be done through our food?

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, November 1st, 2016.
