Live Skype meal between Pittsburgh and Tehran (

Last month we talked about Pittsburgh’s Conflict Kitchen and it continues to gain more attention and praise. Read the dispatch from PBS Frontline’s Tehrean Bureau. Hamed Aleaziz writes of the kitchen:

“Created by a group of Carnegie Mellon University artists and scholars, the project, dubbed Conflict Kitchen, aims to expose Americans to cultures they might have little contact with other than through the nightly news. Kubideh Kitchen goes straight for the gut, literally. It will be around for only three months before another food stand takes its turn, but its impact is already impressive. Even Jay Leno has taken notice.”
