Peacock Café (3251 Prospect St., NW) is a favorite of Georgetown dining. Recently, its chef Maziar Farivar was selected among a group of 60 chefs across the U.S. to the “Diplomatic Culinary Partnership Initiative, Setting the Table for Diplomacy,” through the State Department. Farivar received his blue jacket as a member of the State Department Chef Corps for Diplomatic Culinary Partnership. Eleven embassy chefs joined other well-known Washington area chefs for the event at Blair House. Discussion of the universal power of food headlined the event. The State Department’s Diplomatic Culinary Partnership looks to promote the role of culinary engagement in America’s public diplomacy.
