Pittsburgh's Conflict Kitchen

Two art professors and a recent art graduate at Carnegie Mellon University have begun a year-long restaurant project in Pittsburgh called Conflict Kitchen, in which only foods from countries in conflict with the U.S. will be served.  The idea is "to raise awareness of the issues between the countries and to gain a better understanding of the highlighted countries' social and cultural life."

The project is funded by the Sprout Fund, the Waffle Shop, and the Center for Arts in Society.

The first version of the project is an Iranian take-out restaurant called Kubideh Kitchen in the East Liberty neighborhood, which the professors opened on May 4. The food looks mighty appetizing.

Conflict Kitchen will be hosting a free event on June 5 that will
feature Persian foods and a live Skype chat with Iranian diners in Tehran.

Well then by all means quarantine yourself with the rest of your ilk, so we can get on with our lives without you.

I'd never though about it before, but the US has definitely gone to war (or at least had hostile relations) with some delicious cuisines. Japan, Vietnam, Cuba, Mexico, France, the Southern U.S., Spain, Italy.

Throw India in there and I could eat happy for a lifetime.
