FOOD: Our Global Kitchen
On View June 9 – August 19, 2018*
Take a journey around the world and through time on an exploration of food’s history and the role it plays among cultures around the world. Stroll through an ancient market, cook a virtual meal, peek inside the dining rooms of illustrious individuals—and consider some of the most challenging issues of our time. A demonstration kitchen will allow for special programming opportunities and tasting experiences.
- A life-size re-creation of a 16th-century Aztec marketplace
- Food Ships, an interactive game that demonstrates the challenges associated with transporting items like bananas, apples, tuna, and lamb around the world
- Signature dishes from around the world and how these have evolved through generations, from Korean kimchi to Moroccan tagine
- Smelling stations featuring scents such as lemon, lavender, thyme, and fennel, vital ingredients used in everything from candies to fish dishes to potent absinthe
- Utensils and cookware from around the globe, in addition to a selection of historic, classic, and even humorous cookbooks
