About Political Folk Cuisine

With Political Folk Cuisine we want to create conversations between people about challenges in society. We do this by giving people some exciting debates and the opportunity to talk about the issues of a good meal. We work purposefully to involve the audience in the debates and give them ideas on how they can engage and act themselves.
