At the History Colorado Center, they have an exhibit called, Food Our Global Kitchen. The exhibit happens to be a travel exhibit meaning that it goes from one place to another. The exhibit was made in New York, traveled from there to Boston, then came her to Denver. The exhibit talks about the different steps that food goes through to get from where it it grown, to our plates.

 The exhibit goes through the whole process of food for all different countries. The process is the same for all of the different places, grow, trade/sell, cook, and eat. Some people when cooking the food pickle the food instead of the regular heat. For the grow part, certain crops take different types of land. For the eat part, some people eat like we do, some people eat laying down, or some people eat sitting down on little tiny chair like beanbags. For the trading part, many people trade by saying, if you give me this food, then I’ll give you this food. Liz Cook an Environmental Educator lead us through the exhibit.

After that exhibit, we went to the library. The library is called, Steven H. Heart Library and Research. Laura Ruttum Senturia a Director showed us some old menus from restaurants. They are also called Ephemera. An Ephemera is anything that has temporary use and has no muse once it has been used. The menus were as old as from the 1920s.
