Eating together is a project by Malcolm Lowe, an ESC volunteer in Brcko, Bosnia and Herzegovina, on the project RESOLVE: Volunteer4Peace, working in person with Svitac Bosnia and online with the Resolve: Network.
This project is about how food can bring us together, but also how it can divide us. In the coming months, there will be a series of interviews with young people about cases in their countries where food has been the subject of social controversy, as well as how food can be used as a tool for togetherness and peace.

Eating together 1 – Elmedina Fazlovic, Pita, Family and Community in Bosnia and Herzegovina
In the first episode of the new podcast Eating Together, Malcolm spoke to Elmedina Fazlović about the importance of pita in her family, to her personally and across the western Balkan region. They talked about some of the divisions based on the word ‘burek’ and about Turkish influence on Bosnian food, as well as the ways that people from this region are united by food culture.
