Food: Transforming the American Table, 1950-2000

When food comes to our mouths, do we think about where it has come from? Sometimes we might, but often, it just passes along unnoticed. This website looks into the world of food during the period from 1950 to 2000, with a special focus on "who does the cooking, where meals are consumed, and what we know (or think we know) about what's good for us." It is all intended to complement an in situ exhibit at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History that opened in November 2012. On the site, visitors can view videos of Julia Child's 100th birthday celebration, take a look at special articles about the exhibit from Bon Appetit, and also look over their in-house blog. Visitors can click on About the Exhibition to learn about some of the main sections here, which include Julia Child's kitchen, moved from Cambridge, Massachusetts to the museum after her death. Also, users shouldn't miss Chris Kimball's recollections of eating and cooking with the late Julia Child.
