our foods speak volumes about who we are. Key Ingredients: America by Food,
a Smithsonian traveling exhibition, delves into the historical,
regional, and social traditions that merge in everyday meals and
celebrations of the American table.
Through a variety of artifacts, photographs, and illustrations, Key Ingredients
examines how culture, ethnicity, class, landscape, and tradition have
influenced the foods and flavors we enjoy across the nation. The
exhibition looks at the evolution of the American kitchen and how food
