The Marietta History Museum is delighted to debut a new exhibit that will open on January 28th, 2011. Titled "Exploration of Southern Food Ways," the exhibit will bring the sights, smells, and experiences of authentic southern cuisine into the Museum.
Running for a whole year, the exhibit will focus on the unforgettable uniqueness of the food that has become such a large part of our southern cultural identity. So much of whom southerners are can be identified in the food they prepare. Recipes are steeped in tradition, comfort, hospitality, warmth, strength and perseverance. Visitors will find on display essential kitchen utensils and interesting gadgets, cookbooks valued second only to the Bible, and lists of Cobb County restaurants and businesses where southern ingredients and recipes could be found. Of course, special introductions to typical southern dishes such as greens and fried chicken will be offered. Once this exhibit primes your appetite, be sure to visit one of the many fine restaurants on Marietta Square. You have a whole year to do it!
The Museum is free to Members, $5 for Adults, $3 for Seniors and Students, and Free for Children under 6. Open Monday - Saturday 10am - 4pm. To find out more, call 770-794-5710 or visit www.MariettaHistory.org.
