conflict kitchen

To follow up on our conversation in class this week, here's another recent example of functional packaging-as-zine: the Conflict Kitchen project in Pittsburgh, PA.

From their website:

Conflict Kitchen is a take-out restaurant that only serves cuisine from countries with which the United States government is in conflict.

Conflict Kitchen’s current iteration is an Iranian take-out restaurant, "Kubideh Kitchen", that serves kubideh: spiced meat in freshly-baked barbari bread with onion, mint, and basil.

The sandwich is served in a custom-designed wrapper that includes interviews with Iranians on subjects ranging from Persian poetry to the current political turmoil.

Find out more about the project on their website HERE or support their next iteration, "Bolani Pazi", an Afghan take-out restaurant HERE.
