Culinary diplomacy is a form of cultural diplomacy. Reem Kassis, author of the Palestinian Table, shares stories of her people through their food and makes her case one delicious dish at a time. Her approach has won unlikely friends in the American-Israeli community, as well as detractors. On this episode, hear about the challenges of representing a culture, of selling a cookbook when you have no IG following nor previous experience, and of battling your own uncertainty.
