Girls will enjoy seasonal tastings, cook a virtual meal, and take a journey from farm to fork in this appetizing exhibit. Presented with Whole Foods Market, the Test Kitchen inside the exhibition will feature seasonal treats, samplings of chocolate, and demonstrations.

“Explore the complex and intricate food system that brings what we eat from farm to fork. In sections devoted to growing, transporting, cooking, eating, tasting, and celebrating, the exhibition illuminates how our world eats and the future of food.

With opportunities to taste seasonal treats in the working kitchen, cook a virtual meal, see rare artifacts, and peek into the dining rooms of famous figures throughout history, visitors will examine the intersection of food, nature, culture, health, and history—and consider some of the most challenging issues of our time.”
