A Spoonful of Sofrito: Museum of Food and Drink!
A Spoonful of Sofrito: A pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life.
MOFAD: Museum of Food and Drink!
Did you know that there was a museum dedicated to food and drink? Yeah, neither did I! How incredible is that? A museum dedicated to the art, science, culture, history, and production of food and drink- this is so cool!
This weekend, while I was searching the 'net, I discovered MOFAD's website and it threw me for a loop! How could there be a foodie museum and I know nothing about it? I poured through the 'site and fell in love!
The calendar of events is chock full of workshops, lectures, cooking demonstrations, art exhibits, and a lot more. If you're like me, a foodie and museum nut, then this place is heaven! I can't wait to go to their next CHOW, their monthly snack and chat about Chinese food and restaurants.
Check out the museum's Mission statement below and their website for more information! Go SEE AND TASTE for yourself! ¡Buen Provecho!
MOFAD: Museum of Food and Drink
The Museum of Food and Drink (MOFAD) is a nonprofit dedicated to advancing public understanding of the culture, history, science, production, and commerce of food and drink.
MOFAD Lab is the museum's inaugural design studio and gallery space located in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. In this space, MOFAD creates exhibits and hosts an array of public programs, including cooking classes, guided tastings, hands-on workshops, science demonstrations, discussions, and seminars. Chow: Making the Chinese American Restaurant is currently on show at MOFAD Lab.
Supported by a diverse community of donors, volunteers, and partners, MOFAD is working toward building the world's first large-scale museum with exhibits you can eat. This global center for learning will feature multiple exhibition galleries, program and workshop space, a garden, café, and more.
