Food is Not the Enemy

Albert Einstein once said, "An empty stomach is not a good political advisor.” If he were alive today he could literally eat his words. A new concept in take-out has popped up in Philadelphia. It's called "Conflict Kitchen" .
Conflict Kitchen only serves food from countries of which the U.S. is in conflict. The type of cuisine rotates every four months until we run out of countries whose ideals we oppose. We know that will never happen.
Iranian food kicks off this gastro-political concept. The wrappers educate the eater on customs and U.S. perceptions of the hilighted nation.
Conflict Kitchen is a project by John Peña, Jon Rubin, and Dawn Weleski and is funded by the Sprout Fund, Waffle Shop, and the Center for the Arts in Society.
