All About Food

An ambitious new exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History delves into the huge topic of food from a wonderful educational point of view. “Our Global Kitchen” shows the history of food and impact on our cultures, and “explores the complex and intricate food system that brings what we eat from farm to fork.” From growing and cultivating food, to transporting it, and all the celebrations and traditions that surround cooking and eating it, the exhibition covers huge ground. Ancient potato varieties are on display, along with what a typical breakfast looks like for swimmer Michael Phelps, and a diorama of the incredible food at an Aztec market.
