The American Museum of Natural History has a new–and highly Edible!–exhibition that will intrigue, astound and make us all think harder about how food gets from a farm to our fork. The exhibition, Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture, features hands-on activities to explore every aspect of what we eat–from growing and transporting to cooking, eating, tasting and celebrating.
Kids will love the smelling stations that disperse puffs of air scented with lemon, lavender, thyme, and fennel–vital ingredients in recipes around the world–and even adults will discover something new, like how a week’s worth of groceries differs for families from 16 countries around the world. Come taste, cook a virtual meal, view rare artifacts and peek into the dining rooms of famous figures throughout history. Click here for more info and tickets.
