Episode #14 & #14.5 | Stirring the Cultural Pot
The Hague Diplomacy Podcast aims at bringing the themes of the journal's research off the page, and onto the discussion table. Each episode will feature a guest who will share their insights and personal experience within their practice of or research on diplomacy. Available via SoundCloud, Apple Podcasts and Spotify!
In this two-part episode, host Ilen Madhavji explores the delicious world of culinary diplomacy alongside Chef Ritu Dalmia and Chef Emmanuel Stroobant, to get a taste of their perspective from the kitchen. This episode focuses on the inter-cultural element of food and its potential to unite people of difference. Our chef guests, who both have combined European and Asian approaches to cuisine, speak from their experiences of breaking down fears, traditions, and barriers through food. Whether it is through fusing the culinary traditions of India, Italy, Belgium, and Singapore, or finding common ground across the Eurasian divide in how we enjoy our meals, there are more cultural links than you may think!
This episode was made possible by a partnership between The Hague Diplomacy Podcast and the Cowater project, “Advancing the EU role in multilateral Fora in Asia”, and funded by the EU.
