Food as diplomacy: Welcome and “Guten Appetit!/Bon Appetit!”

Posted by buck00 under: Crossing Cultures; Food Across Cultures .

Here’s a clip from a CBS news story on the new role of food-as-diplomacy at the State Department.  Seemingly small but potentially very important gestures — not just at the level of the State Department, but for each of us to consider as we host, entertain and acknowledge foreign colleagues, guests and friends.  (And featuring friend  Robert Hickey at ca.   2’58”, author of Honor & Respect: The Official Guide to Names, Titles, and Forms of Address.)
