Museum of Food and Drink  MOFAD is a new kind of museum that brings the world of food & drink to life with exhibits you can taste, touch, and smell. Open Friday-Sunday 12PM-6PM

In October @mofad hosted a Fall Fundraiser and we were joined by @eater’s Editor-In-Chief Amanda Kludt (@kludt) and @luckypeach’s cofounder Peter Meehan (@greasetrap). Peter Kim (@petermofad), MOFAD’s Executive Director, lead an invigorating discussion on the evolution of food culture and its perception in the US. Food has gone “beyond the plate,” diving into culture, history and science. In what direction do you think food is evolving?

Happy 153rd birthday to Prosper Montagné (1865-1948)! While you might be unfamiliar with this unsung hero's name, many consider him to be one of the most influential figures in French Gastronomy, up there with Carême and Escoffier. Not only did he advocate with the doing away of pièces montées (large food sculptures) and unnecessary garnishes, but most significantly, he authored the Larousse Gastronomique in 1938. This book was vital to young chefs growing up (particularly those in France after its publication), and it still remains just as important a resource for any chef today. Needless to say, Montagné had a significant impact on modern day cookery. #foodisculture

We are beyond excited to have had this Salesman Sampler Box of Extrin Flavorings donated to our collection! The donor’s father used to be a food dealer from the 1940s-80s, and this was a part of his traveling sales kit: Coffee Cake flavor, Butta Spice, App’l-ade, Butta Lemon, Butta Almond, and Butta Orange flavors. These were meant to be butter flavor additives for large scale bakeries. The kit fits right in with all of other objects that were featured in our exhibition on flavor, we are looking forward to getting them on display soon!

Repost from @archela:
📍 @mofad, brooklyn // Stepped into a time machine and learned about how Chinese American restaurants grew and evolved in our country. Complete with an interactive tasting session with a MOFAD chef, unlimited fortune cookies, and a display of vintage menus, I was definitely in foodie heaven. Truly appreciate museums that actually teach you about the history and culture of food. 🥡✨
