The New York Times is reporting that the City’s first museum dedicated to the history of food and drink culture across the world will be opening in Williamsburg this October 28th.
The Museum of Food and Drink will feature a series of rotating exhibitions that provide an in-depth look at topics related to food history (how did the search for spices drive the age of exploration?), culture (what is the socioeconomic role of street food in cities?), science (where does soil come from, and why does it matter?), production (how is breakfast cereal made?), and commerce (what is the impact of coffee on world trade?). Through tastings, live demonstrations, and hands-on activities, these innovative exhibitions will bring to life the vital role of food in human culture.
The 5,000 square foot space will host one exhibition at a time, with concepts similar to this one explaining how you can reverse engineer flavor.
