Our Global Kitchen Tweetup


On Wednesday, January 30, join us for a delectable evening in Our Global Kitchen!

Take a journey around the world and through time as you explore the exhibition and discover the many ways we grow, transport, cook, eat, and celebrate food. Meet the exhibition curators and take part in a range of activities that highlight one food with a fascinating history: chocolate.

In Our Global Kitchen, visit an Aztec marketplace, where cacao beans were used as currency and chocolate drinks were flavored with chili peppers, corn meal, or flowers. You’ll also have an opportunity to:

  • Try wine and chocolate pairings.
  • Sample a variety of chocolate.
  • Learn to make a mole sauce in the exhibition’s working kitchen.

Once you’ve had your fill, Whole Food’s local forager Elly Truesdell will also be on hand to share which foods can be found growing in New York City.

The Our Global Kitchen Tweetup is presented in partnership with Whole Foods Market and is open to those who follow the Museum (@AMNH) and Whole Foods Market (@WholeFoodsNYC) on Twitter.
