Over the Summer, LPD participated in the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) R&D Salon on Gastrodiplomacy, with remarks submitted via video.
To end out the year, LPD was featured on a Quartz News video piece on Gastrodiplomacy.
Into the New Year, LPD has been invited to speak on Gastrodiplomacy at a conference in Istanbul on the gastro-economy in Spring 2019.
