12. The Food Museum
The website for the Food Museum Online is loaded with exhibits, and it
merits several visits. Lively historic and contemporary drawings, photos,
and videos populate the lengthy homepage of this New Mexico-based site
about the origins of foods, food issues, food advertising, and foods in
other countries. Visitors can find the newest exhibit at the top of the
homepage, which is called "Feast or Famine", and addresses the paradox
of the one billion people whom are malnourished in the world, and the
one billion that are overnourished or obese. Visitors can find related
exhibits, "Eating Disorders" and "School Lunch Reform", as links at the
end of the Feast or Famine exhibit. The "Watermelon" exhibit, about
halfway down the homepage, includes the history of watermelons,
comparisons against other types of melons, botanical drawings,
watermelon-themed toys, a postcard, a Japanese
woodcut, and a link to guidance in choosing a ripe watermelon. Visitors
shouldn't miss the multimedia exhibit, "Making Crepes: Then & Now", which
includes a 30-second video of a cook using a French Crepmatic, which
produces a square (rather than round) crepe. [KMG]
