â€œOur Healing Tableâ€ withÂ Hanan Rasheed
In 1973, at the age of 14, Hanan Rasheed emigrated from Palestine to the Bay Area in California. Undeterred by the failure of diplomats to bring peace and security to Palestinians and Israelis, Rasheed began practicing â€œhummus diplomacy,â€ believing that peace can be achieved when ordinary citizens on both sides meet face to face to eat together and listen to one another. The healing table, Rasheed explains, is a table where the dishes have the same ingredients but different flavors, where peoples of conflict can meet as humans having the same rights and needs.Â Chef Hanan Rasheed is a Palestinian-American who believes a beautiful meal has the power to unite. At a time when the world faces unprecedented distrust and division, the culinary arts may prove the start of a healing conversation. A mother of five and grandmother of eight, Rasheed is a graduate of the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City who uses her talent to teach others about Palestinian culture and cuisine. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
