Kitchen Conversations Podcast
by AMNH on
People in nearly every culture around the world cook—in fact, it’s one of humankind’s most distinctive traits. The Museum’s special exhibition Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture explores cultures and cooking, historic meals and markets, and the moments in our lives we mark with food—taking visitors on a journey of growing, transporting, cooking, tasting, and celebrating food.
During Festival Luna, a two-day Global Weekends festival that took place at the Museum in early 2013, the Museum hosted a team from Kitchen Conversations, a project to document storytelling about food. Interviewers asked visitors to offer personal reflections about meals and cooking. In this podcast, join the conversation with raconteurs of all ages and from different backgrounds as they swap recipes and recall their favorite home-cooked meals.
If you’d like to share an image of what food means to you, whether it’s the strangest meal you’ve ever had, or remembering your family gathered around the dinner table, post your photo to Instagram with the hashtag #CelebrateFood, and include a brief caption. Your photo could be selected to be featured in the exhibition Our Global Kitchen.
Festival Luna took place at the Museum on January 25 and January 26, 2013. Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture is open through August 11, 2013.
