“There is something profoundly satisfying about sharing a meal. Eating together, breaking bread together, is one of the oldest and most fundamentally unifying of human experiences.”
“If you could have a dinner party with any five people in the world, with whom would you choose to dine and why?”
I was asked this question in January of 2017. Most people would select celebrities and politicians but there are countless intriguing people in the world who we do not really hear about. I decided to create a blog about what it would be like to invite these brilliant minds to dinner.
Each Hypothetical Dinner Parties post consists of a guest list which I compile as I peruse through the non-mainstream media and stories that do not get as much traffic or coverage. I briefly describe what each guest does. I try to envision what it would be like to have those individuals, of all walks of life, together at a dinner party. What would the conversation be like? What would the energy be like?
HDP allows readers to envision encounters of enterprising and extraordinary individuals as they break bread together, a sacred experience across cultures.
It is my dream that, someday, what are now hypothetical dinner parties will become non-hypothetical dinner parties.
Bon appétit and be our guest,
Creator of HDP
