This exhibition, curated by CBC Chief Conservation Scientist Dr. Eleanor Sterling, explores the complex and intricate food system that brings what we eat from farm to fork. In sections devoted to growing, transporting, cooking, tasting, and celebrating, the exhibition illuminates the myriad ways food is produced and moved around the world. With opportunities to cook a virtual meal, see rare artifacts from the Museum’s collection, and peek into the dining rooms of famous figures through history, visitors examine the intersection of food, nature, culture, health, and history – and consider some of the most challenging issues of our time.
