Any Ethnic conflicts here HUGGERS?

Courtney Burns's curator insight, November 20, 2013 12:04 PM

Initially I wasn't really sure what I thought about this resturant. My initial reaction was that I hated it and thought it was a bad idea. I to seemed like we were supporting another country by serving their food. However there is a cultural experience involved when we go out to eat. Many people go out to italian resturants to get the experience of italy and etc. However after really thinking about it the US is typically in conflict with another countries government, not the people who live there. By selling the food of countries we are in conflict with almost gives us an idea about what exactly the culture is there. I think it almost educates people in such a way. I think that might be the purpose on the resturant. By eating at this resturant it opens peoples eyes to what people of that particular country are consuming on a regular day basis. That experience can be good or bad, but either way it still opens up peoples eyes to the type of world other countries are living in. I think by eating there you open yourslef up to a new cultural experience, which I belive is exactly the point that the kitchen is trying to serve. Even if it is through food.

Conflict Kitchen serves foods from the countries the United States is in conflict with. They might be doing this to show Americans a little bit of how their culture is b eating their foods.

MoMA | Back to School: A Taste of Finland

MoMA | Back to School: A Taste of Finland | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

 

 The most regulated aspect of many children’s everyday relationship with food is school lunch, and this is exactly the subject of Back to School: A Taste of Finland. In this series, a collaboration between the exhibition curators, MoMA’s Cafe 2, and the Consulate General of Finland, adults are invited to participate in a meal inspired by the koululounas (school lunches) of Finland, a country consistently recognized for excelling in all aspects of public education. According to its National Board of Education, Finland was the first country in the world to serve free, regulated school meals to children on a large scale, starting in 1948. Today, balanced meals of local and inexpensive ingredients provide both energy and educational value.

Food produced in Finland is the cleanest in Europe

Food produced in Finland is the cleanest in Europe | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

The European Food Safety Authority, EFSA, has published a report on the pesticide content of food sold in Europe. According to the annual report, food produced in Finland is the cleanest in Europe.

 

70.8 per cent of the food produced in Finland did not contain any traces of pesticides. Half of the food produced in the whole of Europe was completely clean. Pesticide residues were detected, but in very small amounts.
