Here we offer a taste of modern conflict, organized into a day’s worth of eating. These dishes hail from recipes we have collected over years of work in the field. They yield an eclectic feast representative of what people around the world are eating right now in order to maintain, endure and survive. Taken together, these dishes may reflect a cuisine of resilience, as well as suggest a portrait of true food sustainability. We organize our offering into menus for your imaginative consideration, however our menus are not meant to suggest combinations that reflect actual cultural precedent. Click on the dishes for recipes. We encourage you to reproduce these dishes at home as a way to inform your own practice with either food awareness or social justice.
