World Affairs Lecture Series - Amy Riolo

Culinary Diplomacy

Communication is the common foundation for all relationships – and food is the foundation upon which our families, communities, and lives are built. In this engaging presentation, Amy Riolo shares simple steps to better cross cultural communication and relations through food and dining. Her presentation will reveal how to “translate” the culinary cultures of other communities as well as practical tips to know when travelling and entertaining. Best of all, you’ll witness practical examples of how a simple meal can transform public policy and create lasting diplomatic ties while learning ways to “build bridges” at your own dinner table. As an award-winning author, chef, television personality, cuisine and culture expert, and educator, Amy Riolo is known for sharing history, culture, and nutrition through global cuisine. Amy makes frequent appearances on numerous television and radio programs both in the United States and abroad.
