Filed under: Cooking, Event — pennefesm @ 11:36 am

phplg2fI1November marks the season of winter baking and holiday meal planning–food is on our minds these short days. Mark your calendar now for the “Hungry Planet Exhibit: What the World Eats,” opening this Wednesday, November 11, and running through May 2010, at the University of Minnesota’s Bell Museum of Natural History.

The grocery lists and dining tables of people around the globe are the subject of this provocative exhibit based on the national, best-selling book by Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio. “Hungry Planet” combines mesmerizing photos with hands-on displays that explore issues of food in the 21st century–what people eat and where it comes from, as well as how different cultures approach the growing and processing of food.
