“Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture”, An Exhibit in Austin
The exhibition Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture explores the complex systems that bring food from farm to fork. View rare artifacts, such as a Sumerian rice weight, a Pre-Columbian ceramic dog from Mexico, and a Moroccan mortar and pestle, among others. Explore a Vietnamese rice paddy field, a French oyster farm, and discover how maize farms in the U.S. differ from those in Kenya.
Travel back to Tenochtitlán in 1519 and experience the sights and sounds of an ancient Aztec marketplace. Cook "virtual" dishes from around the word, and learn about the science behind various cooking methods. Scent stations allow you to experience familiar and exotic smells of spices grown all over the globe. Learn what scientists discovered about the last meal eaten by a 5,000-year-old mummified human. Peek into the dining rooms of famous people, such as the Mongolian ruler Kublai Khan and British author Jane Austen. Discover the Whole Foods Market Tasting Kitchen that offers live demonstrations and samplings on select Saturdays.
