“Breaking bread together is a way to remove barriers and helps us explore new cultures and build stronger relationships when we socialise. The Mediterranean lifestyle, for example, focuses on sharing meals with the people you love, whether it’s just to catch-up over a simple dinner or partaking in a massive celebration.”

“The traditional Mediterranean cuisine and lifestyle emphasises the values of hospitality, neighbourliness and a respect for diversity. It brings people of all ages, conditions and social classes together, aiming not only to eat but to share knowledge, culture and mutual respect.” — from Oliving the Life

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” —
Maya Angelou

“Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people get together to eat.” — Guy Fieri
