Peace Kitchens

Interesting people with a tendency towards stubbornness. Outrageously good food. And cultures fighting for their future - the ingredients are here and ready to be mixed!

The TV documentary series Peace Ingredients tells cultural stories from parts of the world that are marked by conflicts. Cooking is the starting point of these stories, which shed a light on the daily life and social history behind today’s regional political conflicts in an entertaining way.

The series focuses on strong personalities. Heroes of everyday life, who contribute to their region’s culture and society in a non-political and unconventional way. The protagonists’ biographies become the basis of a historical and cultural review of the regional conflicts. The local way of cooking also offers opportunities to explore a region and its typical ingredients.

Defying all conflicts and crises, the series Peace Ingredients uses rich images to tell humorous and optimistic cultural stories about people who don’t let anything get them down.
