The Bell Museum, CBS Conservatory, and The Good Acre are joining forces to tell a fun food story in three informative and engaging chapters as you move from site to site.

  1. Start at the Bell Museum with an exclusive guided tour of the new exhibit Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture, produced by the American Museum of Natural History, to learn about the intersection of food, nature, culture, health, and history.
  2. Take a quick ride to the UMN College of Biological Sciences Conservatory — home to the most diverse collection of plants in the upper midwest — to encounter interesting food plants from around the world.
  3. Enjoy a hands-on cooking demonstration and tasting at The Good Acre with guest chef instructors Beth Jones and Nettie Colòn of Campus Club. We’ll prepare two scrumptious celebratory dishes to share, with roots in Minnesota and Puerto Rico.

Bring your favorite recipe and a story to share from your family’s holiday cookbook, and discuss global food traditions while sipping our local celebratory punch!
