Enemy Kitchen, a mobile food truck project

Saw it in the news today. It’s more an art project than a food project. I know HO is more political neutral site. But I find it interesting to see food is used as a medium.

"Enemy Kitchen is a public art project by Michael Rakowitz that explores the relationship between hospitality and hostility. Rakowitz and his mother collected and compiled recipes from the Baghdad area. These recipes are turned into dishes which are served by U.S. veterans of the Iraq War from a food truck designed by the artist. "

Similar to Pittsburgh’s Conflict Kitchen, which operated for three or four years before closing down. (Most of the food was pretty decent!)

Thanks for post, I looked at some of the menu of the previous editions, the food looked good, not sure I can ever find easily North Korean food in a restaurant as vs to South K food.
