Conflict Kitchen -- an Oakland restaurant that specializes in cuisine from nations with which the United States is in conflict -- recently introduced a Palestinian menu to coincide with Middle East talks at the University Honors College at Pitt. 

This week, the restaurant hosted LailaEl-Haddad, a Palestinian journalist, blogger, chef and author of the book “The Gaza Kitchen.” She orchestrated a Gazan meal and gave a talk about Palestine, its food and its politics. She joins us to talk about food, culture and politics in the Middle East.
