MOFAD - Museum of Food and Drink

MOFAD - Museum of Food and Drink MOFAD is a new kind of museum that brings the world of food to life with exhibits you can taste, touch, and smell. Food is Culture. As the most universal aspect of human existence, it is a powerful lens for understanding ourselves, each other, and the world around us.
(65)

MOFAD is a new kind of museum that uses this power to create cultural change towards a more thoughtful, caring, and delicious future. MOFAD brings the world of food and drink to life with exhibits you can taste, touch, and smell. Our goal is to be the world’s premier food museum and a global educational resource that inspires generations of curious eaters of all ages and backgrounds.

Each week we share the story of an American culinary hero from our Legacy Quilt, telling the often overlooked history of the countless Black farmers, chefs, food and drink producers, who have laid the foundation for American food culture.

The Quilt is part of our upcoming exhibition, "African/American: Making the Nation's Table." This week's featured quilt block is @charladraper.

Charla Draper is a former food editor of Ebony Magazine and Southern Living Magazine. She also served as a test kitchen manager for Kraft Kitchens and as a communications manager for the Campbell Soup Company.

Join her for a series of virtual programs celebrating Black Foodways during the 20th annual #NationalSoulFoodMonth this June: http://bit.ly/NSFM2021

Each week we share the story of an American culinary hero from our Legacy Quilt, telling the often overlooked history of the countless Black farmers, chefs, food and drink producers, who have laid the foundation for American food culture.

The Quilt is part of our upcoming exhibition, "African/American: Making the Nation's Table." This week's featured quilt block is Benjamin F. Jackson.

Benjamin Jackson received a patent on May 30, 1911 for inventing a gas burner for candy kettles. He also improved on pressurized gas burners such as those used for propane grills.

Each week we share the story of an American culinary hero from our Legacy Quilt, telling the often overlooked history of the countless Black farmers, chefs, food and drink producers, who have laid the foundation for American food culture.

The Quilt is part of our upcoming exhibition, "African/American: Making the Nation's Table." This week's featured quilt block is Simeon Newsome.

Newsome’s May 22, 1894 patent was for a multi-use lamp that could be used at the base of the stove or on a standard cooktop. The design influenced many outdoor oven and cooking systems. Toy giant Mattel used the design for its toy lantern.

WooHop still my favorite Chineese Food. Keep Doing what you do!
Gung Hay Fat Choy! I live in San Francisco's Chinatown and I have a large drum that used to contain 100 pounds of MSG. Would you like it for your museum? It could be repurposed into many things, like a stool, storage container or a trash can. I can send a photo. Height 18.5" and Radius of about 16".
Dear Food Friends: I know that I may have spoken recently witth some of you and that others may have already sent their responses to my new column questions (please see below), but I want to make sure that everyone I know in the food space is notified of the new opportunity I have to offer and is also aware that, even if you have been spoken about on WBZ before, I am always happy to hear about (and potentially promote) new products, services, events, etc. While I am still broadcasting about food on WBZ (which is now affiliated with iHeart Radio and so enjoys more listeners than ever!), I have recently been invited to serve as Food Editor for the newly-revamped Santé Magazine (www.SanteMagazine.com). In this capacity, I will be reviving and expanding upon my popular Chef Chat© column, introducing other columns and pieces, and working with a team of talented writers from around the world to support friends and colleagues in the food space. Though some of the questions have been updated, the Chef Chat© column will continue to delve into the lives and careers of established and up-and-coming chefs in a way that allows them to express themselves and allows their colleagues and patrons to get to know them better. In addition to the chef’s responses to the questions below, each column will include a photo of the chef and of their corporate or menu logo, an introductory biography of the chef being featured and also a featured recipe from each chef so they can showcase their creativity and tempt diners to their various venues. Here is a sample: https://santemagazine.com/chef-chat-steve-peljovich/ I have also recently introduced a new column called Menu Makers© that features food entrepreneurs and independent creators and purveyors. Many have already asked to participate and the feedback has been quite positive, so I hope that you will reply to those questions and pass them along to any colleagues or friends who may also be interested. Here is a sample: https://santemagazine.com/menu-makers-ryan-novak/ The questions for the Chef Chat© and Menu Makers© columns are below. Should you think that any friends or colleagues might wish to participate or should you or any other colleagues have suggestions for these segments or any other ideas for stories, please contact me at [email protected]. Also, please be sure to keep ms posted of any new developments that might work well on my radio spots (samples of which can be heard at www.Matts-Meals.com). I look forward to working with you all and to bringing your stories to my listeners and readers.
