Food + Diplomacy = Gastrodiplomacy

Ever a succinct statement in a great article by Mary Jo Pham,

Cheers to Prof. Hayden, Mary Jo and the AU students who have organized  perhaps the finest gastrodiplomacy summit since Nixon-Krushchev's Kitchen Debate- although I would probably classify that tête-à-tête as culinary diplomacy.  I have no problem mincing words.

To the AU organizers: May your plates always be full with culinary delights, and your glasses always filled with arbor gold. Buen provecho to all who come- come hungry!
