Food - a history of European encounters and exchanges

8 MAY 2018 (18:00 - 21:30)

Event Type: Talks

Audience: Adults, Young adults, Schools

Event Language: Dutch, English, French

Food is probably one of the most diverse European heritages among those that result from encounters through the ages. Today we live in a globalised world of eating cultures and products. However, from ancient times onwards, exchanges have shaped what we eat and how we eat it.

To what extent can our food habits be considered part of European heritage? How does the history of cooking, drinking and eating in Europe illustrate the fertile and impactful contacts that have existed between different regions, nations and continents? Can local eating traditions survive in a context of increasing culinary uniformity?  Join us to discuss this everyday-life topic with food history and anthropology specialists.

After the debate, you will have the opportunity to visit the exhibition where culinary encounters and exchanges are presented in a lively and hands-on way, and to taste some finger food prepared by the chef of the museum's restaurant.

Celebrate our one year birthday on Europe Day!
