Hidden Kitchens World: Stories of Kimchi Diplomacy, Conflict Kitchens & Change

Production of four short segments on NPR’s “Morning Edition,” one hour-long episode, podcasts, and enhanced online features that explore food as a means of cross-cultural understanding.

The Kitchen Sisters are seeking NEH support for a new season of "Hidden Kitchens World" on NPR's "Morning Edition"--kitchen stories that travel the globe. Stories exploring "gastrodiplomacy," the use of food as an instrument to create cross cultural understanding in this time of accelerated globalization, and surprising stories of everyday foodstuffs such as eggs, chocolate and the use of kimchi as an agent of global transformation. HKW chronicles little known stories of food--its history, rituals, traditions,socioeconomic and environmental impact, its mythic and symbolic importance and place in the preservation and dissemination of cultures. An imaginative, on-air/multimedia collaboration with scholars & community: 4-6 sound rich stories on "Morning Edition"; an hour long radio special; podcasts; online features at & rich with humanities perspectives, story, multimedia, ways to interact and delve deep; and HKW community events around the country.
