At the Museum of Science in Boston, a new temporary exhibit is being showcased until April 15, 2014. It’s called “Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, and Culture” and at its core it attempts to explain how the individual’s relationship to food impacts the relationship that society as a whole has cultivated with health and wellness. It contains multiple sections which showcase specific cultures’ food traditions, while also explaining the reasons why people from different areas of the world eat the way that they do. In addition to this, the exhibit traces the origin and history of certain foods, and how what we eat is grown, cultivated, and transported across our Earth. Finally, the exhibit tackles some of the most controversial topics in health and nutrition, defining food as the common thread that runs between us all, and demonstrating how nature and culture bring our world closer together (Museum).
I can’t wait to go to the MOS and check this out! Has anybody else been or is planning to go? What did you think? Let me know!
Until Next Week…Plan Well, Pack Well, Live Well,
