Transforming the American Table

On View 1 East

Julia Child’s home kitchen, with its hundreds of tools, appliances, and furnishings, serves as the opening story of the museum’s first major exhibition on food history. From the impact of new technologies, to the influence of social and cultural changes, the exhibition explores the transformation of food and drink in post-WWII America, as well as what we know (or think we know) about what’s good for us. The public is invited to take a seat at a large, communal table in the center of the exhibition to share their own thoughts and experiences about food and change in the United States.

This exhibition is made possible by Warren and Barbara Winiarski │ Winiarski Family Foundation, the Brewers Association, Land O’Lakes Foundation, Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts, History Channel, and many other generous donors.
