Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture
Sat, Nov 17, 2012 - Sun, Aug 11, 2013
Celebrate cultures and cooking, historic meals and markets, and moments in our lives that we mark with food—as well as the ingredients that we have discovered and shaped over the course of thousands of years. As this exhibition takes visitors on a journey of growing, transporting, cooking, eating, and celebrating food, it also examines contemporary issues of environmental and human health, food security, and feeding the world’s growing population today and tomorrow.
