Gastrodiplomacy refers to the idea that food is a vehicle and of cultural exchange, and as such, can be used as a cultural diplomacy tool. Proponents of the concept believe that the processes surrounding food can be helpful in creating common grounds and fostering understanding between different parties. While gastrodiplomacy alone is unlikely to achieve positive diplomatic outcomes, it can be used as a tool to get different parties to the table and to a point where other diplomatic and policy measures can be discussed and implemented.
