As far back as the Greeks almost 2000 years the
importance of sharing food and drink was recognized. Stories tell us that for the Greeks the bonds formed when one shared
meals with people outside your family meant that you were linked together,
prohibited from fighting against earth other for generations. Imagine that inviting a colleague to lunch would shape the your life and those of your children, and grandchildren.
Today the United States Department of State recognizes
that shared meals, the food served are valuable tools of diplomacy. It’s a way to showcase
ones culture, honor the culture of your guests. The recent article “Diplomacy Travels on Its
Stomach, Too” http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/04/dining/secretary-of-state-transforms-the-diplomatic-menu.html?pagewanted=all
makes it clear -- meals matter!
