When Food Brings Cultures Together
"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.31, Sonia 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?

Winemaking 101, Minimalism in Poster Design, and the PechaKucha Milan Experience
Presentations As we've covered multiple times on the blog, PechaKucha was in Milan last month for the Milano Salone (Milan Design Week), with a series of four PechaKucha events held at Heineken's temporary club space, designed by up-and-coming creators who were selected through a series of PechaKucha events in four cities. In this presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 91), Jean Snow gives you a taste of what the events were like, and slips in a few design week-related slides as well. So you think you know about wine? Sommelier Fabien Jacob definitely knows a thing or two about the process of making wine, and in this presentation (from PKN San Antonio Vol. 5), he shows you what that process looks like. He also ends up explaining the types of grapes used, and famous winemaking regions. Posters Today we've added three beautiful posters from previous PKNs in Kosice (Vol. 15-17) to our Tumblr blog. We really love the minimalism of the Vol. 16 poster (above) -- certainly not what you tend to see from an event poster. Photos We have a few more photo galleries from the archives to share today. Above, cheers from an attendee at PKN San Juan Vol. 5, and then a relaxed audience taking in the outdoor PKN Warsaw Vol. 8.
