We're at MOHAI this month
MOHAI (Museum of History and Industry) located at South Lake Union, has a new exhibit on now, called Edible City: A Delicious Journey. This is how they describe it:
"In Seattle, food has always meant more than a meal. The city’s journey from the earliest oyster middens to the modern four-star restaurants is a reflection of Seattle’s geography, history, and people. Edible City: A Delicious Journey serves up the story of how people eat in Seattle, and how urban palates have developed over the years.
For nearly two centuries, Seattle has been a region whose culinary traditions, like its people, are distinguished by the confluence of cultures, the wise use of natural resources, and the willingness (and oftentimes necessity) to try something new.
Discover the secret history of the Pacific Northwest’s favorite foods: learn the origins of the Rainier cherry, see treasures from the long history of Pike Place Market, get acquainted with the man behind the city’s first sushi bar, and debate Seattle’s signature dishes."
In tandem with this exhibit, the Museum Gift Shop is featuring some new artists and locally made products. Soapworks Studio's soaps are a new item in the gift shop this month! If you're in the neighborhood, stop by and grab a bar or two.
