CELEBRATE! Seasonal Food-venture in Falcon Heights

November 17, 2018 @ 1:45 pm - 6:00 pm


3 Intriguing Destinations!

2 Delicious Recipes!

1 Unforgettable Afternoon!

The Bell Museum, UMN College of Biological Sciences Conservatory, and The Good Acre are joining forces to tell a fun food story in three informative and engaging chapters.

  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 UMN’s Campus Club. Ever wondered what happens when a Puerto Rican chef meets a German/Austrian chef from Minnesota? The best Latin/German/Midwestern fusion you can imagine! Experience their unique blends of family favorites and holiday fare with a menu of Nettie’s Fricasé de Pollo, Zanahorias, Papas y Arroz (Chicken Fricasse with Carrots, Potatoes & Nettie’s “Sure to Get Me a Husband” Rice) and Beth’s Aunt Dodie’s Chocolate Yule Log with Cinnamon Whipped Cream.

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